Providence Soccer vs Brandon University
Results: WSOC L 0-3, MSOC W 2-1
MCAC Record: WSOC 1-1-0, MSOC 2-0-0
The Pilots landed in Brandon this past Saturday for a meeting with the BU Bobcats. All 4 teams entered the matches with perfect records, and convincing wins to show it. The Providence women got off to a rough start and couldn’t find their way, getting shut out 3-0. The men started off in much the same way, being outplayed. Brandon scored on a free kick to take a 1-0 lead into the break. The second half showed a resilient Pilots squad who would score the equalizer on a free kick and the go-ahead goal on the final play of the game.
“Hats off to the guys, they showed a lot of character in their huge comeback win. Our boys dealt with the pressure in a quality way and found a way to win despite being down after a rough first half. We’re looking for a solid week now as we prep for an intense weekend against two very good teams in USB and a rematch with Brandon. So far, the race for the top of the MCAC leaderboard is looking tight” Joey Passi

The Pilots were back in action on Sunday to defend their home field against the ACC Cougars. Providence women played well, scoring early and often as they bounced back from being shut out the day before, to tally 9 goals. The men added another lopsided win to their MCAC record, showing early dominance over their conference opponents. The men defeated ACC by a score of 8 to 0.
“Brandon was a tough game. Despite the circumstances we faced on Saturday, we didn’t play the type of soccer we know how to. In saying that, Sunday was a huge win for us against ACC. The girls showed character and resilience out on the field and we kept our intensity going all 90 minutes, which was really incredible to see. We have an awesome team, and still so much to prove this season. I’m stoked for this year.” Chloe Jahn
