The Douglas College Royals men’s soccer team capped off their season at the CCAA national championship tournament, with a 4th place finish after a heartbreaking loss to the Champlain St. Lambert Cavaliers in the bronze medal final.
This past weekend, for the eighth time since the 1999-2000 season, the Douglas College Royals men?s soccer team once again captured the PACWEST Conference championship gold medal, defeating the Capilano University Blues and the Vancouver Island University Mariners.
The Douglas College Royals men's soccer team won their last two games of the regular season with a 5-3 win over Langara College, and a 2-0 win over VIU, securing the 2nd seed in the PACWEST Soccer Championship, October 25-26 hosted by Langara College at the Burnaby Lake Turf fields.
The Douglas College Royals men's and women's soccer team rolled into Nanaimo this past weekend to take on the VIU Mariners in back to back games for what each team hoped would be an additional six points added to their spot on the standings.
The 2019-2020 edition of the Royals men's soccer team returns a mostly veteran line-up who will be looking for redemption from last year's disappointing post-season end. The Royals had looked poised for a return to the CCAA National Championships, where two years prior, they had earned a silver medal finish. On the heels of an 8-2 regular season record and an 8-0 drubbing of the Langara Falcons in the final regular season game, the Royals hopes were clipped by those same Falcons in a thrilling PACWEST Championship semi-final rematch that ended in penalty kicks.
