Men's soccer Report Card

2.5 / 5

The University of Calgary men's soccer squad truly merits two grades, as their season was essentially the tale of two different teams. The first half of the season saw them go 0-5-2 and have a goals scored/goals against differential of minus six, hardly a recipe for a competitive season in the Canada West conference. The turning point for the soccersaurs came after a disappointing 2-1 setback in Lethbridge against the Pronghorns on Sept. 27. Returning home to Calgary to play the rematch of their home-and-home set, Calgary stepped on the turf and put the boots to the 'Horns to the tune of 4-0, the largest margin of victory of the season for the Dinos. Following their first win, the Dinos would earn a mark of 2-3-2 down the stretch, including two terrific outings against national powerhouses University of British Columbia and University of Victoria. The Dinos first-half play earns them one and a half out of five, while their much improved second half is worthy of three and a half out of five for an average of 2.5.
