Filipe Vilela and Shaquille Agard each get a brace as GBC cruises to victory over U of T Mississauga
The Huskies men’s soccer team’s first match started off with consistency against the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) on Friday, Sept. 14.
“Keep it simple and stay locked in.” said head coach John Williams to his squad before the game started.
In an offensive first half, George Brown College’s (GBC) star midfielder, Filipe Vilela, scored in the second minute.
Striker, Shaquille Agard, scored next in the 17th minute on a penalty kick and the Huskies finished the first half with a 2-0 lead.
“The game plan is to be humble and stay hungry.” said forward Jo-Horus Toutou. “I feel like this is our year as our team is still trying to juggle with each other. So I think that we just need to stay focused for the bigger picture because we really know where we want to be.”
Vilela scored again in the 67th minute for his second brace this season followed by Agard who picked up his first brace this year in the 76th minute.
Daniel Studzinski scored with a header off a corner kick in the 85th minute as GBC finished the match 5-0 over UTM.
“I think that with the forwards that we have it’s about them focusing on scoring the goal and not putting the ball through the net,” said Williams. “Today they did a really good job of managing and staying composed and putting the ball in the net.”
The next men’s soccer game will be on Sept. 20 at 4:30 p.m. against the Sheridan Bruins.
