The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Bri­tish Columbia premier soc­cer player Lu­cas Ross has com­mit­ted to the UPEI Pan­thers for next sea­son. The midfielder is from Okana­gan Val­ley, B.C., and just fin­ished his fifth year in the Van­cou­ver White­caps school academy and com­pleted his third year in the Bri­tish Columbia Soc­cer Premier League. “I can’t wait to come out east and of­fer what I’ve learned here,’’ Ross said in a news re­lease. “I know I will im­prove my game at the Univer­sity of Prince Ed­ward Is­land.” UPEI head coach Lewis Page says Ross brings some valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence to the Pan­thers’ ros­ter. “I am happy to add Lu­cas Ross to our ros­ter for next sea­son. His ex­pe­ri­ence from the White­caps Academy in the Okanagon will make him a strong can­di­date for a mid­field role in our team,” Page said. Ross will be en­ter­ing the bach­e­lor of science pro­gram.
