Opposition Will be Seeing Double as Blazers WSC Sign Brar Twins

The CMU Women's Soccer program is very pleased to announce the commitment of Muneet and Summet Brar for the 2024-25 MCAC season. The Kildonan East and Phoenix Club products will patrol both ends of the pitch with Muneet on the backline and Sumeet at striker once the season kicks off in September.

Graduates of Kildonan East Collegiate in 2022, both Brars have spent their year since graduating studying at the University of Manitoba but have made the decision to transfer to CMU to continue their post-secondary education to play under the Blazers new head coach, Jason Moist. While they both suited up for their high school Reivers squad in the KPAC zone of MHSAA's "AAAA" division, it was the club scene where the duo really saw their game blossom.

Members of Phoenix FC since their U10 years, Both Muneet and Sumeet have seen plenty of success at the club level, including tournament wins here in Manitoba, as well as south of the Border in Grand Forks. The attacking-minded striker Sumeet was a perennial top-scorer on her team and co-captain of the squad, while Muneet patrolled the backfield striking fear into opposition's attackers. "Muneet is agressive and won't back down until she gets the ball," states Sumeet of her sister's defensive prowess. Conversely, "Sumeet knows what play to make and reads the field well; she keeps a balanced offence," notes Muneet about her twin's offensive talent.

A stint with E&E Sports Management under coach Danny Damelo helped the duo get back into competitive soccer at the university level after completing their youth club eligibility. They're both excited about getting back into the sport and training again, especially with the all-star lineup of coaches the Blazers program has assembled. Head coach Jason Moist is excited to add the Brars to the roster, noting that both are tenacious hard-workers who will bring their intensity and work ethic to the squad this season. "Muneet is a player who defensively, will do everything in her power to not be beat and strikes fear in the heart of opposition attackers. She is strong in the tackle and plays with determination and focus that will serve her well in all aspects of her game. I am very excited for her to be a key part of our backline in the coming season." Meanwhile, the coach also chimed in on his newest striker, stating "I am really looking forward to seeing Sumeet's involvement and production this season, especially in the attacking phase of play. Sumeet plays with a fearlessness and determination that is great to see. Her willingness to take players on one on one, and her eye for goal means she will be one of our most exciting players to watch this year. I am very excited to have her be a part of our team."

It should be clear that the two Brar sisters are very different student-athletes, playing positions on the opposite ends of the pitch, and also studying in different areas. Muneet is planning to continue her studies through CMU's English program, while Sumeet will be taking the Psychology track when full-time classes resume in the fall. But before classes and the season starts up again in September, the team will be looking forward to some CCAA competition as the squad is set to return to Red Deer in late August for pre-season tuneups.

Blazers Women's Soccer last hoisted the provincial trophy in the fall of 2018, and will look to take another step towards capturing another title this coming season. The winner of the Manitoba Collegiate Athletics Conference earns the right to represent the province at the Canadian Collegiate Athletics Association (CCAA) National Championships at the conclusion of the outdoor season, which the Blazers look to accomplish now entering the fourth year that the MCAC has been fully included in the Canada-wide conference.
