AmeliaOctober 1 ­‐ Coming off a difficult Week 3 where the Falcons only managed one point from the weekend, it was imperative for Langara to gain maximum points from Week 4. On Saturday, Langara travelled to North Vancouver to face long­‐time rival, the Capilano University Blues. Langara maintained possession for long stretches of the match but it was the consistently dangerous runs and pace of striker Amelia Brown (North Vancouver, B.C.) that would open up the Blues defence. Although Brown did not find the net in the Falcons 3-­0 win, she was instrumental in the combination play that lead to the Falcons second and third goals of the game.

 

On Sunday, Langara faced Quest University Kermodes and Brown was finally rewarded for her continued hard work by finding the back of the net twice in the Falcons 2-­1 win. Her first goal came at the 17 minute mark of the first half and was an absolute cracker from 25 yards out into the top corner, beating keeper Taylor Shantz. Her second goal came in the second half with the game tied 1-­1, when she made a fantastic run in behind the Quest backline to latch onto an Alyssa Graeme chipped ball. She calmly rounded the goalkeeper and finished from an extremely tight angle. Brown's pace and skill helped Langara keep possession and see the game out and secure six points from the weekend. The Falcons (5-­2-­2) now sit in third place with 17 points, just two points behind the first place VIU Mariners.
