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.
