Thunderbirds and Spartans Take Majority of All-Stars
Alberta’s Korthuis named MVP, Victoria’s Bruce Wilson named Coach of the Year

LANGLEY, British Columbia – The University of British Columbia and Trinity Western University dominated the 2005 Canada West All-Star selections, but the two top teams were shut-out of the major Canada West awards. Alberta halfback Mark Korthuis took top honours as he was named Canada West Most Valuable Player, while the fifth place Vikes took two of three Canada West major men’s soccer awards and placed two members on the first all-star team. The Vikes head coach Bruce Wilson was named Canada West Coach of the Year, while Victoria striker Cole McFarlane the Canada West Rookie of the Year.

Korthuis is a 6’1”, fourth year Physical Education and Recreation student from Saskatoon, SK. He led the Canada West in scoring this season with seven goals and is considered one of the dominant attackers in Canada West.

McFarlane is a 5’10”, first year Humanities student from Calgary, AB. He led the Vikes in scoring this season with four goals, which ties him for third place in Canada West.

Wilson, who won the Coach of the Year award last year to go along with the 2004 CIS National Championship is a former member of the Canadian National men’s team and has been named CIS Coach of the Year on two separate occasions, 1991-92 and 1996-97.
