Soccer Recap Week 2

September 24th, 2017

For the second weekend in a row the Mariner Soccer teams have been on the road. On Saturday the Mariners played Langara, with the Women coming away with a tie and the men winning convincingly 4-0. Sunday was a different story with the Women's team losing 3-1 to Douglas and the men salvaging a 3-3 tie in the final seconds of the match.

Scoring the Mariner Women's lone goal on Saturday was Chloe Gummer and Sunday Moira Brown. "Despite the results I took a lot of positives from this past weekend. In the second half we dominated a very good Douglas team and created many chances against Langara. On another day the results may have been different but that's the game! The players have been fantastic and constantly support each other. We look forward to a few home weekends now." Women's Coach Kevin Lindo

Men's goal scores included: Jordan De Graaf notching 2 goals vs Langara, with the other goals coming from Jeff Travis and Russell Lederer.
