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.
