The injury bug has hit the Providence soccer teams as a few of the teams regulars have been out of action for this past weekend. Despite being down both teams have deep benches and continued to push to play good soccer this weekend.
On the women’s side the team went 0-2 losing two MCAC games against Assiniboine Community College 4-2 in Brandon, and a home game against Brandon University 3-1. Assistant head coach Dustin Martin had this to say about the team and the results this weekend, “Despite multiple challenges to this weekend, the entire team showed tremendous spirit and great courage to play with both integrity and determination over the two games. No matter what conditions we face, we always play attractive soccer and continue to get better as the season goes on” He later went on to mention the upcoming US road trip that is essential to their power ranking in the North Region of the NCCAA. Dustin said, “We look forward to this upcoming road trip where I know we will continue to show the same heart and determination to prove who we are.“
On the men’s side the Pilots posted one win and one tie. The win was against Assiniboine Community College 4-1 and the tie was against undefeated Brandon University. Coach Passi said, "Getting a 1-1 tie against Brandon is a good result. They are a good team with lots of offensive power. We conceded more chances and possession than what we would have liked, but ultimately the only thing that counts is the result so we'll take the tie and use that to get better for our upcoming games in the USA."
The Pilots travel down south to Ankeny, Iowa on Wednesday to play NCCAA North Region opponents, Thursday and Friday.
