Chilliwack’s Shumbusho making early-season mark with UBC soccer squad

The Chilliwack FC grad is a starting forward as a freshman with the U-Sports powerhouse T-Birds.

Chilliwack FC alum Victory Shumbusho picked up his second goal of the young U-Sports soccer season, helping his UBC Thunderbirds beat the UBC-Okanagan Heat 2-1 Saturday.

Shumbusho struck 9:38 into the match, heading in the deflection of a wide cross into the box.

Shumbusho put two shots on goal in 77 minutes, coming off with just over 13 minutes to play.

He played 88 minutes and recorded one shot Sunday as his T-Birds played to a 2-2 draw with the Thompson Rivers Wolfpack.

Shumbusho has started all four games at forward for UBC so far, a rarity for a freshman. His team is 3-0-1 and has time off before their next games, Sept. 15 vs Calgary and Sept. 16 vs Grant McEwen.
