Soccer games took place this past week on Wednesday and Thursday against the ACC Cougars and Sunday against the Red River Rebels. This was the Bobcats' 3rd and 4th exhibition games of the season as both men and women are working their ways towards playoff positions.
The women’s team, already well on their way to a perfect season, took no prisoners in their game on Wednesday, September 20th . The women’s game against the Cougars ended brutally, as the Bobcats outscored their prey 8-0. Donna Romero and Hasana Church together scored half of the goals. The lady Bobcats had more of a challenge on Sunday, but still put the Rebels in their place winning 1-0. This puts the women’s soccer team at a record of 4-0. The men’s team had some really strong games after their losses the last few games. On Thursday the Bobcats fought back and forth with the Cougars but ended up beating them 5-2 with two goals scored by Nolan Melanson. On Sunday the men’s game against the Rebels also proved fruitful. The cold windy day out in Winnipeg resulted in BU shutting out Red River 3-0. The men’s record now sits at 2-2.
Both games took place away from the Bobcats’ home turf, with Wednesday’s game on ACC territory at Christian Heritage School here in Brandon, while Sunday’s game was played in Winnipeg.
The soccer teams’ next games will be taking place next weekend as they will face the
Canadian Mennonite University and Providence. The game on the 30th takes place here at
the HLC at 1:00PM.
Bobcats Volleyball began their season this last weekend as well, with the women’s team travelling to the University of Regina in Saskatchewan to take on the University of Alberta, University of Regina, University of Winnipeg, University of Saskatchewan (based in Saskatoon), and University of Manitoba. The women had a rough start, losing by narrow margins to the University of Manitoba Bisons and the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on Friday, and by more narrow still margins to the University of Alberta Pandas and University of Regina Cougars on Saturday. As at time of printing, the Sunday scores had yet to be posted.
The men and women will be playing again next weekend in Winnipeg. Also next Friday, the women’s basketball team will be playing at MacEwan University.
