For the second straight week, a member of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack men’s soccer program has been honored with a Canada West star of the week.
Midfielder Ryan Glanville (5th year, Williams Lake, BC) is the second male star of the week ending September 10, 2017
Glanville follows in the footsteps of Mitchell Popadynetz (4th year, midfield, Nelson, BC) who was the Canada West first star of the week seven days ago.
From the Canada West press release:
Men’s second star – Ryan Glanville
Thompson Rivers WolfPack soccer
Williams Lake, B.C.
Masters in Business
Game log: Friday, September 8 – two shots on goal in 0-0 draw @ Trinity Western / Saturday, September 9 – goal and assist in 4-2 W @ Fraser Valley.
The two-time Canada West all-star and U SPORTS Academic All-Canadian has been a driving force for the WolfPack program all season. The 33-year-old father of two, who is also holding down a full-time job while he completes his master’s degree, has been shouldering a lot of the attention on offence.
This past weekend, Glanville scored his second of the season and added an assist, as the WolfPack picked up valuable points on the road and now sit in a three-way tie for second in the Canada West Pacific Division.
The WolfPack’s draw with Trinity marked the first time TRU secured points on the road against the Spartans.
This coming week, the WolfPack take to the pitch for just a single game, as the Lethbridge Pronghorns come to town for a Sunday matinee (2 p.m. PDT) at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops.
The other Canada West male stars of the week are Elie Gindo of Trinity Western as the first star and Jake Vikers of Mount Royal as the third star. The other two winners are also soccer players.
The first three Canada West female stars of the week are Megan Ripplinger of Saskatchewan, Meagan Lemoine of MacEwan as second star and Cassie Bazzarelli of Alberta as third star. All three are soccer players.
