PACWEST Soccer Athletes of the Week

The PACWEST is proud to announce the soccer Athletes of the Week following the opening weekend of the 2018 regular season.

Female Soccer Athlete of the Week
Mikayla Hamilton – Douglas Royals

Mikayla scored twice and assisted on a goal in the PACWEST opening weekend for the Douglas Royals. On Saturday she scored the game winner late in the first half against Langara on a low driven strike from outside the box. On Sunday, after a slow start for the Royals, Mikayla set up the 2-2 tying goal with a great cut back and scored the third goal on a breakaway against Capilano.

Male Soccer Athlete of the Week
Adrian Sahagun – Capilano Blues

Six minutes into the season, Sahagun gave Capilano an early lead over VIU and scored the first of his three goals in Saturday’s contest. The second-year forward caused fits for the Mariners defense all afternoon, as he consistently created offence down the right wing. All three of the goals were scored in different ways: the first when he beat the defender one-on-one and fired a low strike, the second on a cross that caused misdirection and bounced past the keeper, and the third on a volley from the top of the 18-yard-box.
