On Friday, the Providence University College soccer teams traveled down to Fargo, N.D. to play in neutral site NCCAA Division II regional games against the North Central University Rams. The women were up first and fought hard in a losing effort. In the 1-0 loss, Providence hit 2 posts and missed on 5 fast break chances. Coach Giancarlo Calla said after the game: “it was a bitter sweet feeling because we played well and did a lot of things right, but our lack of finishing sunk us. I hope it will motivate and inspire us to work harder and finish the next opportunity we get.”
On the men’s side, it was a fast start for Providence seeing Troy Lydiate scoring 9 minutes into the game. The score remained 1-0 until half time. In the second half, NCU came out strong and managed to tie the game. Two overtime periods could not break this evenly contested matchup which resulted in a 1-1 draw. Coach Martin Ward comments: “It wasn’t the result we were hoping for and injuries are starting to pile up but hopefully these challenging games will make us stronger in the long run.”
Sunday saw the first MCAC action of the season in soccer for Providence. The women overcame a slow start and battled to a 2-0 victory over the Red River College Rebels. Brianna Plett opened the scoring and Annemarie Kaethler headed in the second goal.
The men came out very strong and beat Red River 3-1. Norvin Campos had a big game with 2 goals and Connor Wiebe added the third.
