The PACWEST is proud to announce the soccer Athletes of the Week following Week 3 of the regular season.
Female Soccer Athlete of the Week
Kayleigh Beaubien – Langara Falcons
Second year Kayleigh Beaubien of the Falcons scored a pair of goals to seal the victory against VIU on Saturday. Her first was headed in off a cross from Carly Dhanda to the near side of the goal. Early in the second half she was sent on a breakaway where she beat the VIU keeper in a one on one and calmly finished what would be the game winning goal. She was not only a threat offensively, but she worked relentlessly on defence in both game.
Male Soccer Athlete of the Week
Keith Jackson – Capilano Blues
Jackson continued his recent scoring tear this past weekend against Douglas with a total of five goals – including four in Sunday’s 6-2 win. After scoring in the second half of Saturday’s contest, Jackson scored again in the first minute on Sunday and didn’t look back. He completed a hat trick in the first half and tallied another in the 78th minute to tie the Capilano men’s soccer record for most goals in a game. The fifth-year forward now leads the PACWEST with eight goals through five games, and his career total of 39 is the second most in PACWEST men’s soccer history.
