Saanich’s Craig Gorman is the Canada West men’s soccer Player of the Week

Saanich’s Craig Gorman is the Canada West men’s soccer Player of the Week for scoring the UVic Vikes first goal of the season on Saturday (Sept. 5), a 1-1 draw with the UBC Thunderbirds.

Gorman, a fifth-year Vike who came through St. Michaels University School and Gordon Head Soccer Association, scored 41 seconds after UBC had jumped ahead 1-0 at the 12-minute mark of the game.

Vikes player Sam Prette (Claremont secondary) earned the third star of the week for setting up Gorman’s goal with a pass.

Gorman scored six goals in five pre-season games for the Vikes.

The Vikes men host the UNBC Timberwolves twice this weekend, with 7:15 p.m. starts on Sept. 11 and 12 at Centennial Stadium.
