Can you say Canada West Champions? Our lady Dinos can, and are the first University of Calgary varsity soccer team to hold the title since the men did in 1980. They showed the grit and determination we have come to expect, pulling off two spectacular shoot-out victories Nov. 5-6. They came onto the pitch as under-dogs and walked off champions.

The Dinos men's soccer team traveled to the University of Lethbridge Fri., Oct. 21 to feast on Pronghorn. It was a satisfying meal, but the University of Victoria Vikes caused some indigestion Sun., Oct. 23.

The University of Calgary was on the board early on Friday with goals from Andrew "Horse" Waiand and Lauren "Bamboo" Ramos. The slumbering Pronghorns snapped to it. Two minutes after the U of C's second goal, the Pronghorns responded with a goal from Justin Tse.

The Dinos women's soccer team continued to steadily improve, pulling off another tie and a victory, advancing their record to 5-2-4 Oct. 15-16.

The battle of Alberta kicked off the weekend, supplying fans with all the name-calling, cat-fighting and general animosity one would expect in a game between these cross-province rivals. Both teams played a motivated game--many of the ladies have been competing against each other for years, not to mention the season's earlier tie.

It was a proud weekend for the Dinos. They trampled the eighth-ranked team in the nation, the University of Manitoba Bisons, Oct. 8-9, dominating both games. The wins move our ladies into the 10th spot in the national coaches' poll. The games were a welcome change for a Dinos team that, previously, had not managed to score at home this season.

We all make mistakes. So do the Dinos. Theirs resulted in losses to the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds and Trinity Western University Spartans Oct. 1-2. Still, die-hard fans were out enduring the weather and lame attempts to announce the games.

The first half against UBC on Saturday was full of chances and anger for both teams. The first goal went to UBC, with a nice cross by Niko "Hurt Leg" Marcina being headed into the corner of the net by Graham Smith.
