The VIU Mariners will begin their PACWEST defence on Saturday as they open the season at home against the Langara Falcons.

Fans will remember the Mariners ended the Falcons hope for gold last year with a controversial goal in the late stages of the semi-final.

This year the Mariners have a new head coach as Kevin Lindo takes over and inherits the defending champs.

Ryan Watters talks with coach Lindo about the upcoming campaign.
