FROM THE COACH:
Little bit of a tough last couple weeks in that we've struggled to get our games in. In the States due to a blizzard we weren't able to play 2 out of our 3 games, and here in Canada our last 3 games have been against depleted teams. However, despite the limitations, our guys performed well, kept the clean sheets, and scored lots of goals. I think our team offense has a lot of ability and we know we can create quality chances. I thought Devin Vermette, Josue, and Aneil all had good weeks as well as various other guys. We've been looking forward to playoffs for months, ever since last semester really. I hope we get good crowds out and that we can put some good soccer together for this weekend. It's the same 4 teams as last year, and everyone has a decent squad. I'm extremely confident in my group of boys though, and I can't wait for Saturday! - Joseph Passi
Josue Choez: Those last two games gave us the opportunity to try new things and improve as a team. I feel like we made those improvements and are set up well to make a good run in the playoffs
Devin Vermette: It was a positive weekend for the team. It gives us a boost of confidence heading into playoffs this coming weekend
