Comox Valley players with VIU Mariners women’s soccer team at PacWest provincial championships

Katie Rodgers and Chloe Gummer hoping to advance to national finals

Katie Rodgers and Chloe Gummer are with the VIU Mariners women's soccer team at the 2016 PacWest championships in Burnaby.

The Vancouver Island University Mariners women’s soccer team will be in Burnaby this weekend for the PacWest provincial championships.

Bolstering the Ms’ lineup are two Comox Valley forwards: freshman Chloe Gummer of Comox (Highland Secondary) and fourth-year player Katie Rodgers of Courtenay (G.P. Vanier).

Gummer had a great first year of PacWest play, scoring six goals and earning all-star honours. Rodgers tallied in the Mariners final season match, a 4-0 win over the Quest Kermodes on Oct. 23.

VIU placed second in league play and is seeded #2 at the four-team provincials. They play #3 Langara Falcons at 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 28. The other semi pits #1 Douglas Royals against #4 Capilano Blues.

On Oct. 29 the bronze medal game goes at 2:30 p.m. followed by the gold medal game at 5 p.m. Tournament information, results and live coverage of the games will be available at https://pacwestbc.prestosports.com/championships/soccer_2016/index.

The PacWest has both wildcards (women and men) to the nationals, therefore a win on Friday would clinch a berth at CCAA Nationals Nov. 7-12.
