UFV weekend wrap: Men's golf wins bronze at nationals

The Cascades men’s golf team rallied to earn a bronze medal at the national championships in Charlottetown, PEI.

The UFV squad, comprised of Aaron Pauls, Darren Whitehouse, Ryan Grill, Connor Richey and Mitch Lock, sat in sixth following Wednesday’s opening round with a combined score of 306. Thursday’s round was washed out due to inclement weather, reducing their window for a comeback, but the Cascades managed to climb three places after finishing with a score of 307 on Friday.

UFV finished 26 strokes back of champion Humber College, and Pauls led the way with a fourth-place result in the individual standings. He carded rounds of 71 and 78.

“I am very proud of the guys, they played well today,” Cascades coach Chris Bertram said.

VIKES SNUFF SOCCER PLAYOFF HOPES

The UFV women’s soccer team had its faint playoff hopes officially extinguished on Saturday, as they dropped a 2-1 decision to the Victoria Vikes at Bateman Park.

Ellen Kuyer gave the Cascades the lead in the 18th minute, finishing off a pass from Danika Snook. But the Vikes’ Shannon Elder struck twice in the late going, scoring in the 80th and 83rd minutes to drop the Cascades to 3-7-3 on the season.

It marked the final home game for fifth-year Cascades Kuyer, Megan Webster and Emma Broadfoot.

In men’s soccer action, the Cascades tied the Lethbridge Pronghorns 2-2 on Saturday, with goals from Trent Mayer and Sasa Plavsic, then dropped a 2-0 decision to the Calgary Dinos on Sunday. The UFV men are seventh out of eight teams in Canada West at 1-9-2.

CASCADE HOOPSTERS ON A ROLL IN PRESEASON

The UFV men’s hoopsters were the only team to go a perfect 3-0 at the UBC Invitational Tournament, beating a trio of Eastern foes on the weekend.

The Cascades beat Memorial University (100-80), Wilfred Laurier (80-70) and Concordia (95-86).

Joel Friesen (25 points) and Sam Freeman (22 points, including five three-pointers) led the Cascades past Concordia, while Kyle Grewal posted a double-double (18 points, 11 rebounds) in the win over Laurier.

“Hopefully we can draw some confidence from these games and take that forward into the Canada West regular season,” head coach Barnaby Cradock said.

UFV hosts its own preseason men’s basketball event this week. The inaugural Honda Way Tournament will feature the Cascades, the Guelph Gryphons, the Thompson Rivers WolfPack, and the Northwest University Eagles of Kirkland, Wash.

Friday’s action sees TRU take on Northwest (6 p.m.), and UFV vs. Guelph (8 p.m.). On Saturday, TRU faces Guelph, followed by UFV vs. Northwest (7 p.m.). All games are at the Envision Athletics Centre.
