UVic soccer women, men trounce Thompson Rivers

The Victoria Vikes opened up the floodgates on both Thompson Rivers Wolfpack soccer teams on Saturday.

Coach Tracy David’s women’s team fended off the Wolfpack 3-0 in afternoon play in Kamloops before Bruce Wilson’s men’s side rebounded from a Friday tie against UBC Okanagan to record a 5-1 victory at Centennial Stadium.

It was the third straight win for the now 3-2-1 women’s Vikes as Kiara Kilbey and Stephanie Badilla-Gutierrez scored in the 25th and 45th minutes in the first half. Teresa Anania added a goal in the 73rd minute while Meaghan Storie recorded the clean sheet in goal.

David said the score wasn’t indicative of the game.

“They certainly had the momentum at times in the first half,” David said of the Wolfpack. “They had six or seven corner kicks and they were dangerous. I was proud of our team for being able to sustain the momentum which was going against us.”

It was, however, the third-straight shutout posted against Thompson Rivers, now 2-4-1 in the womens' West division.

In men’s play, the Vikes defeated the Wolfpack 4-1 to improve to 4-1-2 in the Pacific Division of the Canada West.

Craig Gorman fed a through ball to Cam Hundal to score the opening goal just five minutes into the game for the Vikes, but Ryan Glanville tied it up less than a minute later for the Wolfpack and that was all the scoring in the first half.

Gorman’s penalty kick was stopped by keeper Travis Froehlich midway through the first session but Gorman, Hundal - with a pair - and a Wolfpacks’ own goal in the second half allowed the Vikes to come away with the easy win against Thompson Rivers, now 1-3.
