Pilots Flight Report: Men's Futsal - MCAC SEMI-FINAL

LOCATION: Red River College

PILOTS KEY CONTRIBUTORS:

FROM THE COACH:

"Truly a heart-breaker. It was a phenomenal game to be a part of to be honest. The atmosphere was awesome, the intensity was sky high, and the flow and result of the game matched the atmosphere. Unfortunately due to the nature of soccer, when it truly mattered the bounces didn't go our way. The boys performed the game plan really well and came darn close to knocking off a very powerful team during the regular season in CMU. I was truly proud of the effort and fight the boys showed. The progression through futsal was huge. To be competitive at this stage considering where we started is a testament to them. It sounds cliché, and that's because it is cliché, but we will be back in force for next outdoor season. We are hosting MCAC playoffs and we will be there, and we will be a nightmare to deal with and we aim to defend our home field come October next fall. I can't wait for outdoor now." - Joseph Passi

PLAYER’S VIEW:

"At the beginning of our season we had some ups and downs, but once we got into our game our performance started getting better. Our hard work on the court was the result of a good group of players that every practice were trying their hardest to improve and help the team to be in the playoffs. The game against CMU was a close one. They were not expecting to have to battle that hard to be in the finals. However, we were a hard team to beat with a close score."- Josue Randolph


"The game was an intense game. Our first half we played excellent defense allowing us to maintain the one goal lead we had. The second half opened up with us going down. Our team showed great resilience to come back and force overtime. Sadly we missed a few chances we could have scored. Our team demonstrated strong character showing that we can play with the top teams in our league." - Jay Thiellman
