The PACWEST is proud to announce the soccer Athletes of the Week following Week 2 of the regular season.
Female Athlete of the Week
Claire Ye – Capilano Blues
The product of Coquitlam started both games on the weekend and scored twice in a 5-2 road win Sunday at VIU. Ye was used at midfield at home Saturday and was a steadying influence in a 2-0 clean sheet victory. The fourth-year communications student put her versatility on display Sunday as she started at left wing and opened the scoring at VIU and later played at centre midfield, adding her second of the day for the final Blues tally. The 5-foot-2 veteran then moved to defender to steady the back line and stop a late VIU rally.
Male Athlete of the Week
Shun Takano – VIU Mariners
Shun set up two of the VIU goals in Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Douglas Royals, and then followed that performance up as the Mariners’ player of the game in the Sunday 3-2 win over the Capilano Blues. On Sunday he scored twice and played an influential role in the midfield in both attack and defence.
