The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns men's and women's soccer teams will be looking for their first victories of the Canada West season this weekend as they each host a pair of matches at the
U of L Community Stadium.
Coming off a disappointing opening weekend of the season, the men’s soccer team (0-2-0 CW) will look to rebound this weekend hosting the Saskatchewan Huskies (2-0-0).
Revenge will also be on the squad's mind this weekend; the ‘Horns and Huskies faced off on the final weekend of the season last year and were battling each other for a post-season spot. The Huskies dashed any hopes of the ‘Horns qualifying for the playoffs with a heartbreaking 2-1 victory on the second to last game of the season. In the final game of the season, the ‘Horns and Huskies battled to 1-1 draw.
The ‘Horns dropped both games of a home-and-home series with the Calgary Dinos last weekend, falling 3-2 Saturday in Calgary and 1-0 the next day at home. Defender Conner Brady and freshman Odilichukwu Ohuegbe were the ‘Horns goal scorers on Saturday.
The Huskies, who made their first appearance on the 2013 CIS top 10 list this week at #10, opened their season two weeks ago beating the Winnipeg Wesmen 2-1. Last weekend they traveled to Prince George for one game versus the UNBC Timberwolves and routed the Timberwolves 7-0.
Kick-off for both Saturday's and Sunday's games will follow the women’s contests at approximately 2:15 p.m. at the Community Sports Stadium.
After starting the 2013 season on the road last weekend, the women’s soccer team (0-2-0 CW) returns home to host a pair of Manitoba schools.
Saturday afternoon, the ‘Horns will host the Winnipeg Wesmen (0-2-0 CW) before the Manitoba Bisons (0-2-0 CW) come calling on Sunday. Both games are set for 12 p.m. at the U of L Community Sports Stadium.
The ‘Horns opened the season with a tough 3-0 loss to the Alberta Pandas in Edmonton, followed by a close 1-0 defeat to the Mount Royal Cougars in Calgary. The Cougars' lone goal came on a penalty kick in the opening half.
Both the Winnipeg Wesmen and Manitoba Bisons opened the season with a pair of losses on home field versus the Regina Cougars and Saskatchewan Huskies respectively.
