Kwantlen men's, women's soccer teams in PacWest playoff position

Unbeaten on the road

They have yet to play a home game, but the Kwantlen Eagles men’s and women’s soccer teams have a firm grip on a playoff position after two weeks of play.

The women slipped into a tie for second place in the PacWest league after a 4-0 victory over the Vancouver Island University Mariners in Nanaimo Saturday and a 1-1 draw with the Capilano Blues in North Vancouver Sunday.

The men, one of three unbeaten teams in the eight-team league, played to a pair of ties, playing a scoreless game in Nanaimo and drawing 2-2 against the Blues.

The Eagles women got a hat trick from Burnsview Secondary graduate Danyka Wadley in their win over the Mariners. Dominique Lang opened the scoring on a penalty kick.

L.A. Matheson graduate Sukhleen Gill of Surrey earned her second shut-out of the season.

Kwantlen came from behind for the single point Sunday. Trailing 1-0, the Eagles drew even on a goal from Richmond’s Shanay Sangha.

Now with a 2-1-1 (won-tied-lost) record, the Eagles are tied with the UBC-Okanagan Heat for second place, two points behind the first-place Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack.

Kwantlen’s men’s team battled the second-place Islanders for 90 minutes without either side finding the net.

Sunday’s tie was frustrating for the Eagles, as the team led 2-0 early in the contest on goals by first-year midfielder Jagbir Sangha of North Delta and Murtada Almatrood of Burnaby.

Capilano got one goal back early in the second half, and pulled even in injury time, scoring off a free kick.

At 1-3-0, the Eagles are in fourth place, two back of the Douglas College Royals and Vancouver Island, and one behind the Langara Falcons.

Both Kwantlen teams play their first home games Saturday, with Langara the visitors. The Quest Kermodes are the opposition for Sunday’s contest, also home games at Newton Athletic Park. Kick-off on both days are at noon for the women, and at 2 p.m. for the men.
