The men’s soccer team battled Holland College this weekend at Barker Street Field, and tied the game, despite putting up a good fight.
“The season has been going and this game was great, because we didn’t get scored on for one,” said captain Brandon Wile. “Our confidence was really low coming into this game, because we lost to UNBSJ when we should have beat them. This was a great result for us, even though we didn’t pull off a win.
He added that “in terms of team building this is a positive note for us.”
Coach Darren Cann was very pleased with the effort the men’s team demonstrated yesterday
“I told the boys before the game that it’s important that we have a good performance and try and be positive and try and get free points, which we set out to do,” he said. “A lot of good things happened – it was a very close game.”
“Each team has a few chances to score, I’m pleased that we came away with a point, it builds our confidence for next week and it was really important that we didn’t get beat.”
The men tied their first game of the season again NSAC, but have so far been unable to bring home some “W’s”.
Coach Cann is very happy with his team and how they have played through the first half of the season.
He acknowledges that there will be a big fight for the last playoff spot, and said there are about three teams knocking on the door for that final spot. Kings University, Mount Saint Vincent University and Dalhousie are the top contenders right now to beat.
Cann said the boys need to win the next five games and they will be back up there. The men’s soccer team plays their next home game Oct. 3 at Barker Street Field.
