Douglas Royals (1-3) @ Capilano Blues (2-1) – Saturday October 2, 3:30pm - Lillooet Park. | WATCH HERE

For the second time this season the Royals and Blues will meet, both coming off a weekend split.

During Week 1 of the PACWEST season the Royals hosted the Blues in a game that had one of the most exciting finishes in recent memory. With the Blues up 4-0 the Royals bounced back in extra time with three straight goals just seconds apart, but would eventually run out of time and Blues held on for a 4-3 victory.

Saturday’s game will feature the top three scorers in the PACWEST. Nima Moazenlzadeh of the Blues leads the Conference with four goals while teammate Jeremy Monn-Djasnger and Royals striker Yianni Siafakas each have three.

VIU Mariners (3-0) @ Langara Falcons (1-3) – Saturday October 2, 3:30pm – Swangard Stadium | WATCH HERE

The Mariners are the top team in the country and will go on the road for the first time this season. They will visit Swangard Stadium and face the Falcons after beating them 2-1 in their first meeting in Week 1. In that game the Falcons actually opened the scoring, but couldn’t stop the Mariners offence and Grayson Chalifoux tallied the game winner in the 64th minute.

In their three games so far the Mariners have won each game by only a single goal including a pair of 3-2 victories last weekend. The Falcons meanwhile have lost three straight, all on the road, after winning their home opener in Week 1.
