Devin Vermette scored four goals for a PUC Pilots offence that was firing on all cylinders in their three games this past week.
The Pilots beat the RRC Rebels 7-0 on Wednesday and 3-0 again on Saturday, while finishing the weekend off with a whopping 12-0 win over the ACC Cougars.
There was enough offence to go around, but Vermette was a standout performer for PUC.
“He had four goals for us over the last week and he’s really come on strong as of late and found his game,” said Pilots head coach Joseph Passi. “Devin is playing the best soccer yet of his 3-year career at Prov.”
With championship weekend coming up, Vermette is getting hot at the right time. Passi said he knows what Vermette has improved on from early in the year.
“Devin had a slow start to the year but has really come around in the last five games,” said Passi. “He’s found his dribbling ability again, and he’s making consistent smart plays in the offensive third, creating chances for himself and his teammates.”
Vermette is from St. Pierre, Manitoba and is enrolled in the Social Sciences program at Providence University College.
The Pilots are back in action for championship weekend as the number two seed. They will face the third-ranked CMU Blazers on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. on their home field at the Otterburne Complex. If they come away with a win, they will battle for the MCAC championship on Sunday.
