Perhaps the biggest surprise of last soccer season was the Langara Falcons winning a berth to the CCAA national tournament. They had just three wins in the regular season but played with excellence and precision in the PACWEST semi-final and upset the second seeded Douglas Royals in penalty kicks.

With the victory the Falcons punched their ticket to the PACWEST gold medal game and regardless of the outcome a berth in the CCAA national tournament in PEI.

In a tight match with the Capilano Blues the Falcons fell 2-1 in the PACWEST gold medal game, then advanced to the national championship tournament. There they lost an opening game heartbreaker to Humber in penalty kicks and would go on to finish in fifth.

The Falcons are back and ready to face the Royals this weekend in a home and home. Ryan Watters talks with veteran head coach Marc Rizzardo.
