Richmond United U18 boys' soccer team took another step this weekend towards its ultimate goal of winning a Coastal Cup, which Richmond youth soccer will host May 5 and 6 at Minoru Arenas.

Coached by John Gattens, United advanced to the semifinals with a 10-0 win over the North Vancouver Selects, and will host Upper Vancouver Island Selects next Sunday at 1 p.m. at Hugh Boyd Park.

The other Richmond Metro Select teams that advanced were:

•Richmond United U16, which scored a 4-2 victory over North Coquitlam Selects; Richmond plays Saturday at 1 p.m. at Boyd

•Richmond United U15, which scored a 2-1 victory over North Vancouver Selects (Richmond plays in the Comox Valley next weekend)
