SPORTS BRIEFS: Wolves roar against Pacific United

The Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves maintained their position at the top of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League Premier Division standings after taking down Pacific United 5-1 last weekend.

Coquitlam took the lead and did not look back during the match, with Carlo Basso and Jovan Blagojovic each scoring in the lopsided affair. Basso is currently the highest scoring player in the league with 16 goals, while Blagojovic is tied for fifth in scoring with five goals.

Last week’s win couldn’t have come at a better time for the Wolves. The team lost a bit of ground in the standings when they played West Vancouver FC to a 2-2 tie last weekend.

Coquitlam will look to defend its position at the top of the standings when it takes on the second place Surrey Pegasus FC during a road game Friday night at the Newton Athletic Park.

 

WILLETT WINS

Coquitlam’s Olivia Willett finished 10th at the Canadian National Cross Country Championship in Kingston, Ont.

The Riverside secondary athlete was one of 189 participants in the race and the second highest finisher on B.C.’s youth team, which finished second in the country with 53 points. 

Willett, who is currently in Grade 11, finished the 4 km race in 14.42.7, 12 seconds behind eighth place finisher and fellow B.C. runner, Glynis Sim of Salmon Arm.
