Pack men fall to CIS teams, Thunderbirds, Huskies
Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) soccer looks to be a sure thing in the near future for the TRU WolfPack men’s soccer team, which got a taste of top-level competition on the weekend.
TRU, which plays in the Pacific Western Athletic Association, fell 2-1 to the Saskatchewan Huskies on Sunday, Aug. 26, and 3-0 to the UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday, Aug. 25.
The Huskies and T-Birds are CIS teams.
“I think both of us are happy with how our team accounted for itself,” WolfPack co-head coach John Antulov said.
“These were two pretty solid teams we played.”
Sean Wallace is the other WolfPack co-head coach.
Cam Kamensek slotted TRU’s only goal of the weekend on a penalty kick.
TRU wraps its pre-season with a pair of games, on Friday, Aug. 31, against the NCAA Division II Simon Fraser University Clan in Burnaby and on Saturday, Sept. 1, against the Trinity Western University Spartans in Langley.
