UFV men make first trip to playoffs

After eight years, the University of the Fraser Valley men's soccer team is finally heading into the CIS postseason.

Chilliwack natives Connor MacMillan, Ethan Claibourne-Collins and Zachary Hansen lead the University of the Fraser Valley men’s soccer team into their first ever Canada West playoff tournament next weekend.

The Cascades joined the CIS eight years ago and have never qualified for postseason play.

The Chilliwackians and their crew finished the regular season with a record of 6-7-1.

Their 19 points secured the third and final post-season berth in the Pacific division.

They beat out their arch rivals, the Trinity Western Spartans, who tied the Calgary Dinos 1-1 in their regular season finale to finish with 18 points.

“Congratulations boys,” said UFV coach Alan Errington. “I am very proud of you and all the hard work you put in to reach this accomplishment.”

The Canada West playoffs will be hosted by the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.

Games will be played Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 in Point Grey.

UFV will open Thursday, taking on the second seed from the Prairie division.
