Drake starts its trip with a match against the Air Force Academy on Friday at 6 p.m. (CDT). The Bulldogs will close their trip with a visit to 2016 College Cup participant, No. 4 Denver, on Sunday at 8 p.m. (CDT). Air Force (2-0) received 15 votes in the latest United Soccer Coaches Association Top 25 poll. The Falcons have beaten Missouri State and then No. 23 Florida Gulf Coast. Air Force holds a 3-1 in the all-time series, but Drake claimed the last meeting in 2015. Drake (0-1) dropped its first match of the 2017 season on Sunday with a 3-0 road loss at Xavier. The Musketeers scored two first-half goals as the Bulldogs recorded just one first-half shot and five total. It was the first-ever meeting between Drake and Xavier. Drake had 11 freshman or redshirt freshman play against Xavier. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Caden McCullough (Evansville, Ind.) made his first career start and finished with four saves. Denver (2-0) has also defeated Florida Gulf Coast this season to go with a 1-0 decision over No. 24 Akron. The Pioneers are riding a 37-match unbeaten streak at home with the last loss in Denver occurring in 2014. Denver hosts Furman Friday night. Drake and Denver are playing each other for the first time since 1999. The two schools have split in the previous two head-to-head meetings.
Construction on Vancouver’s first new industrial development in more than 10 years has begun and should be finished by this summer, the project’s developers said Thursday.Dermody Properties, a national industrial development firm based in Nevada, held a groundbreaking for the $10 million project in the muddy rain on Thursday morning. Owners of the 98,400-square-foot facility near Orchards hope to draw tenants from manufacturing and the high-tech sector, said Phil Wood, the company’s Northwest regional partner.“The ideal tenant is building supply, manufacturing, small manufacturing, logistics, e-commerce,” Wood said. “We’ve had quite a bit of interest already from manufacturers that want to look at it.”They’re also open to discussion should a client want to purchase the entire facility, he said.The building, called LogistiCenter 205, at Northeast 60th Way, will have 30-foot clear height (the distance from the floor to the lowest-hanging ceiling object), a 130-foot truck court and 21 dock doors. Dermody hopes to complete the project by July 14.The company chose the location because it’s only 2.2 miles from the I-205 interchange on state Highway 500, Wood added.“This was a site that we liked,” Wood said. “We like building on the 205 corridor, there’s a little less traffic.”The market for industrial facilities in Clark County is also saturated, with a 3.7 percent vacancy rate in 2014, which shows the need for new development, Wood said.
