VIU soccer taking tough trip

The Vancouver Island University Mariners soccer teams had great success on the road last weekend, and they’ll look to keep it going.

The Vancouver Island University Mariners soccer teams had great success on the road last weekend, and they’ll look to keep it going.

Both the women’s and men’s sides scored blowout wins last Saturday in Prince George, but this Saturday (Oct. 1) and Sunday the schedule gets tougher with back-to-back games in Kamloops and Kelowna, respectively. First up are the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack, then the UBC-Okanagan Heat.

“Both of those teams are well coached,” said Anup Kang, coach of the Mariners women’s team, in a press release. “We need to be ready to battle hard in both of those matches.”

VIU’s soccer teams don’t play at home again until Oct. 15.
