UNBC Timberwolves recruit goalkeeper

Logan Pierce led Vancouver Island Soccer League in shutouts in 2021-22 season
The UNBC Timberwolves have recruited soccer goalie Logan Pierce of Campbell River for the upcoming season.

The UNBC Timberwolves have recruited Logan Pierce, one of the most highly-touted goalkeepers in Western Canada, to play for the men’s soccer team.

The 17-year-old Campbell River product plays club soccer with the Campbell River Golden Wings of the Vancouver Island Soccer League and led the VISL in shutouts in 2021-2022.

In a recent visit to Prince George, Pierce had a chance to train alongside the Timberwolves varsity roster, under the watchful eye of coach Steve Simonson.

“The town of Prince George reminds of home back in Campbell River," said Pierce. "A small town, good people. It’s a really good place. And the facilities that UNBC have are state of the art. Nothing I have ever seen before.”

Pierce plays high school soccer for Carihi Secondary, where he has served as varsity captain for the past two seasons, leading the school to a provincial silver medal; the best finish in program history.

“We are really thrilled to add Logan to our team,” said Simonson. “We have a history of high-quality goalkeepers in our program, when you look at names like Ty Venhola, Rob Goodey, and Daniel Zadravec. Logan further strengthens our current goalkeeping team, and I truly look forward to the impact he will have on our program.”

Pierce intends to enrol in UNBC’s arts program, focusing on history. He will join his new teammates for training camp in July.
