SATURDAY

VIU Mariners 4
Langara Falcons 0

The Mariners came out flying in their first game since losing last weekend. Fifth year veteran Jeff Travis got things started with his first of the season in the 34th minute, a goal that would stand as the winner.

Jordan DeGraaf took over the PACWEST scoring lead with a pair of goals in the 39th and 55th minutes giving him five on the season. That’s one more than Keith Jackson of the idle Capilano Blues.

Then in the 73rd minute fifth year vet Russell Lederer got on the board with his first of the season to cap the Mariners scoring.

Goalie David Turkstra earns his third shutout of the season, stopping all three shots he saw.

In their two meetings the Mariners have now outscored the youthful Falcons 11-0.

The Kermodes held serve at home on Saturday with a shutout of the Douglas Royals.

Nick Galvas scored the eventual game winner in the 30th minute, getting a goal past Joel Webb.

Goaltender Sam MacDonad tallied his second shutout in as many games. He was peppered all day long making nine saves, six of which in the second half.

SUNDAY

Langara Falcons 0

For the second straight game Hudson Nelles of the Capilano Blues records a shutout as the visitors hand the Falcons their fifth straight loss.

Douglas Royals 3
VIU Mariners 3

It was the best game of the weekend as these two powerhouses played to a 3-3 tie.
Victor Blasco opened the scoring with his second of the season giving the Mariners the lead. After the Royals tied it, they took the lead when Quinn

Dawson scored his second in as many games.
Not to be outdone the Mariners then tied it when Shun Takano got his second of the season.

In a back and forth game, rookie Royal Tomi Fagopngbe gave the home side a 3-2 lead heading into the late stages of the contest. However a Mariners rookie then tied it again as Govinda Innes blasted home a corner kick in the dying minutes and that’s where the game would end.
