Kwantlen Polytechnic University's men's soccer team in PACWEST playoff

The Kwantlen Eagles came away from the the 2012 PACWEST Provincial Soccer Championships in the same position as they went in, as the fourth-best team in the league.

The men’s team, which went 6-5-3 (won-tied-loss) to place fourth in league play, also placed fourth in the playoff tournament in Squamish, hosted by Quest University. The Eagles lost 4-1 to the first-place Douglas College Royals on Saturday, then fell 6-2 to the third-place Thompson Rivers University Wolf Pack of Kamloops in Sunday’s bronze medal match.

Jacob Starheim of North Delta scored the lone Kwantlen goal Saturday, while goalkeeper Kevin Taheri was named the Player of the Game.

In Sunday’s loss, Marcos Da Silva and Murtada Almatrood were the goal scorers, with Da Silva earning Player of the Game honours.

Almatrood and Starheim were named to the PACWEST first all-star team and teammate Leroy Kusina of Surrey was a second team choice. Almatrood tied for fifth in league scoring with six goals in 14 games, while Starheim netted five.

Ajit Braich was named Coach of the Year.

North Delta’s Brittany McNeill, a midfielder, was the lone Eagle on the women’s first all-star team. Forward Harveer Rai, a Queen Elizabeth graduate, was a second-team selection.
