  In soccer, abstinence is not bestPDF files may take a moment to load

It was another disappointing weekend for the Lady Dinos Oct. 1-2 as they continued their winless streak at home. The weekend ended up netting the Dinos a loss and a tie, but they were unable to net themselves a goal.

Although the sun was shining as the players took to the pitch, a black cloud of darkness soon descended upon the lady Dinos and their previously undefeated season. This cloud took the shape of a Pronghorn, as the ladies from the University of Lethbridge proved to be the spoilers, taking the match 1-0 over the Dinos Sun., Sept. 25.

Natural selection was on the march Sun., Sept. 25. The Dinos men's soccer team took down the maladapted University of Lethbridge Pronghorns 3-0.

The Dinos went for the jugular in the first five minutes and were on the board. Veteran Dino Carlos "Hot Karl" Cruz scored off a set play that started with a throw-in by sophomore Dino Lauren "Bamboo" Ramos.

"There was a big scramble in front of the net and Carlos just touched down and hammered it into the net," said Ramos.

The Dinos women's soccer squad were on the road for a pair of games that went together like pickles and cinnamon sticks Fri., Sept. 16 and Sun., Sept. 18. They first visited the Pandas at the University of Alberta and traveled on to meet the Huskie women at the University of Saskatchewan.

Our ladies got off to a good start--probably still high from the gasoline fumes on the bus, and their totally fabulous wins the previous week. Kara Sturk stuck one behind the Pandas' keeper on a penalty kick 15 minutes into the game.

Up two wins after their games Fri., Sept. 16 and Sun., Sept. 18; the Dinos men's soccer team has proven their prowess over the other rookie-infested teams. Head Coach Andy Gibbs must be pleased.

The men traveled to the University of Alberta's Foote Field on Friday to beat the Golden Bears on their own turf. The first and only goal of the game came in the 17th minute when U of C rookie Ryan "Don't Call Me Dense" Holbrook capitalised on a corner, played badly by the Bears' defense.

  With more rookies than returnees, the coach does the hazingPDF files may take a moment to load

With 14 rookies and a roster of 26--plus some injured senior players--the Dinos men's soccer team's prospects don't look so good.

"It's going to be a challenging year," admitted Head Coach Andy Gibbs.

The team appears to be blessed yearly by the fountain of youth, having battled with a rookie-laden roster last year as well. Because the University of Calgary hosted the Canada West finals last year, the men were guaranteed a berth in the playoffs, and concentrated on development during the season.

When it comes to sweet starts, the Dinos women's soccer team are off to one comparable with the Olsen twins. Now, the trick is to figure out how that success can keep going as long as it has for little baby Michelle from Full House.

Perhaps a publicist could do the trick, maybe even make-up artists, choreographers and a father-figure like Danny.

Fortunately, the soccersaurs Head Coach Robin Slot will be there to guide this team through the season in the manner they have begun it.

  Lady leaders leavePDF files may take a moment to load

The last five seasons have been successes for the Dinos women's soccer team. But despite making their fair share of Canada West playoffs, the girls were unfortunate and haven't made nationals since 1998--before any current players' time.

For departing Co-captains Megan Dourado and Joan Hall, there were still many good memories though. Neither team leader will return to the Dinos squad next year, and cited their teammates and Head Coach Robin Slot as the parts they will miss the most.

As the last tears from the semester's last midterm dry up, Dinos teams across campus have another reason to weep. As players graduate or run out of their five-year eligibilities, they are torn from the heart of teams they have spent years bonding with and getting to know.

Talent

With fewer newcomers than last year, this team was still on the young side. However, they didn't lack talent. They had many consistent contributors who shone on some days and blended in on others. The stats from the regular season didn't show this team's true potential.
