VIU Mariners player Billy Bagiopoulos said last week his team was gaining confidence in its goal-scoring abilities, and that seems to be the case.
Vancouver Island University’s men’s soccer side broke through with a 5-1 win Sunday on the road against the Quest Kermodes, with Bagiopoulos scoring four times. He has now scored six goals in his last three games to take over the PacWest scoring lead with seven in 2016.
VIU lost 2-0 to the Capilano Blues the day before.
VIU’s women also fell 2-0 to Cap on Saturday before earning a 2-2 tie with Quest the next day.
M’s player Chloe Gummer leads the PacWest in goals with five.
GAME ON … VIU’s soccer teams break for Thanksgiving and then play more road games Oct. 15-16 against the Douglas Royals and Langara Falcons, respectively.
