Plaudits for Pitt Meadows player

Brady Weir play for University of the Fraser Valley soccer program.

Pitt Meadows player Brady Weir is getting plaudits with the University of the Fraser Valley soccer program, as the Canada West conference’s weekly awards and the new “U Sports” national rankings were released.

Weir was named a Canada West star of the week after demonstrating some impressive positional versatility on the weekend against the UNBC Timberwolves.

The sophomore excelled in attacking and defending roles as UFV picked up four of a possible six points against the UNBC Timberwolves. Weir lined up as an attacking midfielder on Friday, and was dangerous throughout as UFV and UNBC battled to a 1-1 draw.

On Saturday, Weir shifted to left back and sparkled once again. He picked up an assist on Jassi Mann’s second-half goal, providing excellent service on a cross that Mann fired home, and earned game MVP honours in the Cascades’ 2-0 win.

Weir and the Cascades (8-6-2) wrapped up a regular season, which saw them set a new program record for wins. UFV, the third seed from the Pacific Division, opens the playoffs on the road this Saturday, taking on the Calgary Dinos. Weir was the Cascades’ male rookie of the year across all sports in 2015-16.
