The Falcons and Royals each claimed a shutout win on Sunday.

Langara Falcons 2
Capilano Blues 0

It was a back and forth game on Sunday afternoon as both teams had their opportunities to score. As the game progressed the Falcons seemed to have a bit more jump and finally found the back of the net in the 84th minute. With David Rodriguez Zegarra controlling the ball in the box, he was hauled down and the referee correctly awarded a penalty kick. Rodriguez Zegarra made no mistake burying the shot in the bottom left corner giving the Falcons a 1-0 lead.

In extra time the Falcons added some insurance when Athos Michellpis de Siqueira scored his second of the season courtesy of a free kick from the right side.

It was a successful weekend for the Falcons with a win on Sunday and a 1-1 tie on Saturday. The Blues offence however has disappeared getting shutout in both games this weekend.

Douglas Royals 1
VIU Mariners 0

The defending PACWEST champion Royals are starting to heat up winning their third straight game with a second consecutive shutout.

Both teams had their chances in the opening half, the Royals collected three shots, while the Mariners had four.

It wasn’t until the 87th minute when the Royals finally broke the scoreless tie when Ayman Sahmuddeen found the back of the net for what would turn out to be the game winner. Keeper Jacob McCall made six saves in the shutout win.

The Mariners’ keeper Ben Chamberlin was a bright light keeping his team in it making 15 saves in the loss.
