Coquitlam midfielder Trevor Zanatta scored a pair of late game-winning goals to lead his University of the Fraser Valley Cascades to consecutive 3-2 victories over the Trinity Western University Spartans last weekend.
Last Friday in Langley, Zanatta converted a pass from Manpal Brar when he fired a rapier shot into the bottom right corner of the Spartans’ net in the 76th minute. In the return match Sunday in Abbotsford, the sophomore did it again, this time volleying a winner from a scramble in the 75th minute.
The goals were only the second and third of his college career, and they also earned him recognition as Canada West’s first star of the week.
The wins also lifted the Cascades into fourth place in the Pacific division of the Canada West standings, with games against the University of Victoria Vikings and the UBC Thunderbirds pending this weekend.
Bronze for Metro-Ford women
Coquitlam Metro-Ford’ finished third at the Jubilee Trophy national amateur women’s soccer championship that wrapped up Sunday in St. John’s, N.L.
Metro-Ford defeated Feildans Greensleeves Double Blues, of St. John’s, 1-0, in the bronze medal game. Olivia Aguiar scored the game-winning goal in the 86th minute.
A team from Quebec, Royal Sélect Beauport, won the eight-team tournament after beating Edmonton Northwest United in the final, 1-0.
Meanwhile, Port Moody’s Hamish Ogden came up just short of returning with a medal from the U17 national championships in Charlottetown, P.E.I. His Mountain United team lost its third-place game, 4-2 in penalty kicks, to CS St-Laurent from Quebec.
