The PACWEST is proud to announce the soccer Athletes of the Week following Week 3 of the regular season.
Female Athlete of the Week
Rachel Barker – Langara Falcons
On Saturday against VIU, Rachel was the key in securing the Falcons first point of the season, coming back to finish the game in a 2-2 tie after she scored the Falcons second goal on a central free kick (40-45 yards out) in the 60th minute. Then on Sunday against the Capilano Blues, she was once again a strong presence in the midfield and opened the games’ scoring just 19 minutes in. Despite losing the contest her defensive presence helped prevent numerous scoring chances for the opposition.
Male Athlete of the Week
Mohamednur (Moe) Ibrahim – Douglas Royals
On Saturday, the Royals led 2-0 at halftime on the road and were able to secure the win led by Ibrahim’s play in the middle of the park. He helped set-up the second goal of the game and cruised into the second half with a comfortable lead. He continued to dominate offensively and defensively breaking down several the Blues offensive opportunities in the second half while creating several chances for the Royals. Then on Sunday the Royals defeated the CCAA #1 ranked team in Canada with a late 1-0 win over the VIU Mariners. Ibrahim again was a dominate force in the middle of the park and eventually set up the game winning goal with minutes left.
