Cap vs Quest: October 7 soccer previews

This Saturday, the Blues take on the Quest University Kermodes for the second time in three days. This will be their second last home game of the season and it’ll be a 1:00pm start at Lillooet Park in North Vancouver.

The Blues picked up their second win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Quest up in beautiful Squamish, BC on Thursday. The Blues are currently tied for second place in the league while Quest is looking to move into fourth place to secure the final playoff berth.

Third year student-athlete Natalie Leclerc scored her first goal of the season last Sunday against the VIU Mariners. She hails from Port Coquitlam and is taking the Business program at Capilano University.

Looking at the numbers, the Blues have an even goal differential with 11 for and 11 against while Quest has a goal differential of -8. Both teams have kept it sportsmanlike on the field with Quest not having picked up any cards while the Blues have received two yellows.

Head to head, it’s defense versus offense. Third-year midfielder Sachi Swift has three goals including one game winning goal, she’s currently tied for third place in the PACWEST in goals. She’ll have to contend with first-year Blue, Sydney Schmidt. She’s from Abbotsford, BC and is taking the Human Kinetics program at CapU.

So join us tomorrow, Kermodes, Blues, Saturday, 1 PM.

After doing battle on Thursday night in Squamish, the Capilano Blues and Quest Kermodes will again square off on Saturday afternoon in North Vancouver.

With their 3-1 win over Quest in the first game of their home-and-home, Capilano remains steady in second place in the PACWEST with 15 points through 7 games, while Quest sits in third with a 2-1-4 record and 7 points.

Defenseman Luca Klotz will be the featured Blue in this contest. A rookie from Duncan who’s in the Human Kinetics program, Klotz has been a key part of a defensive unit that’s allowed the second-fewest goals in the league.

Looking at the head to head stats, Quest is looking for their first win on the road this season, while Cap has recorded two victories in their three home games so far. The Blues also hold the edge in goals for and against, having scored 17 and allowed just six.

The featured matchup sees two of the top goalies in the conference squaring off again. Fourth year keeper Hudson Nelles has three shutouts so far this season, while Quest’s Sam MacDonald has two of his own and was named PACWEST athlete of the week in two weeks ago.

Once again, Blues Kermodes, Saturday October 6 at 3:30 in North Vancouver.
