Huskies indoor soccer teams faced off against regional teams on March 5, to earn their place in the OCAA championship.
Both the men’s and women’s teams were successful.
The women won their first two games, defeating Confederation 3-1 and earning a 3-0 shut-out in the second game against Centennial.
In the third game, the Huskies fell just shy of Seneca 0-1.
“We set specific goals and targets for each match, and I think across the board we were able to achieve them,” said Leslie Fitzpatrick, women’s indoor soccer coach. “So it was a good benchmark of where we are, and a good base to build (on) for provincials coming up in two weeks,” he added.
The men’s team started off their success with a 3-0 shut-out against Seneca and winning their second game 4-1 against Confederation.
In the third game of the day, George Brown defeated Canadore 6-0.
In the final game of the day, the Huskies dropped the ball to University of Toronto, losing 7-1.
“It just kind of brings everybody back to reality, and we’re not invincible right?” said men’s indoor soccer coach, John Williams. “So it’s good that they realized that we got some work to do.”
Both the men’s and women’s teams placed in the top two at the regional tournament and will move on to play in the 2019 OCAA Championships on March 21 and 22.
