The PACWEST is pleased to announce the soccer Athletes of the Week following an exciting and “Thanksgiving filled” Week 5 of the soccer schedule.
Women’s Soccer Athlete of the Week
Catrina Olstrom - Capilano Blues
The rookie forward displayed her speed and aggression on offence all week, as she helped carry Capilano to a pair wins over Quest. With the game scoreless in the second half on Saturday, Olstrom forced a defensive miscue and took advantage netting her first career PACWEST goal. Then a few minutes later used her speed to get behind the defense before finding the back of the net for her second of the game. She was the catalyst in leading the Blues to a 4-0 victory.
Men’s Soccer Athlete of the Week
Tomi Fagopngbe – Douglas Royals
The rookie came off the bench in the 60th minute on Saturday and scored from the top of the box on his first touch of the ball to bring the Royals back into the game. He then added the eventual game winner off a corner kick and helped the Royals secure a 3-2 victory. On Sunday he again was a key factor throughout the match scoring on a penalty kick as the Royals poured it on for an easy 4-1 victory. In all he tallied three goals in two games this past weekend.
