Emmanuel Ekeh – Langara Falcons
He scored two goals against the Capilano Blues on Thursday night to pace the Falcons. His first goal, which turned out to be the game winner in a 4-1 victory, was a combination of speed, composure and skill as he outraced the last defender, composed himself as the opposing keeper made a dash to come out and get the ball. He skillfully chipped the ball over the keeper and into the back of the net. On his second goal he out jumped the towering defenders on an attacking corner, nodding the ball coolly into the net. On Sat vs DC Emmanuel showed his to hold onto the ball and distribute to his teammates for easy goals. Then on Saturday he forced the Royals goalkeeper to commit an error while his teammate was able to strip the ball and score.
