After over a decade of existence, four albums and literally hundreds of live shows at an unknown number of diverse venues, the smalls are at the brink of retirement.

The final leg of their Goodbye Forever tour brought them full circle through Alberta, ending a Canadian hard core music era in the same cities where it began.

Not unlike a wounded beast, the University of Calgary men's soccer-saurs are an angry lot. After and 0-3 start, the boys' six consecutive victories have them thirsting for blood, riding a high and daring teams to take them on.

"We're making a statement, we're here to play," said Dinos midfielder, Canada West player of the week and latest offensive star Luis "Scarface" Morales. "Nobody wants to play us right now. Who wants to play a team who've won six straight?"
