The MCAC Soccer Championships may have happened over Halloween weekend this year, but the Blazers men's soccer squad fell one game short of writing their Cinderella story on their quest for the ultimate treat: the opportunity to represent Manitoba at the CCAA National Championships later this month.
The 2021 MCAC Soccer Championship weekend is upon us, and the matchups are all set for the Provincial event, which will see the winners compete for a CCAA National Championship in November.
The Blazers women's soccer team comes in to the championship tournament as the fourth seed, and will matchup with the top team St Boniface Rouges in Saturday's semi-final. Despite the large difference in records between the two sides, CMU's squad has matched up quite well against Les Rouges throughout their three regular season meetings which included two close losses along with a a 1-1 draw at the Ralph Cantafio Soccer Complex in their first meeting. The Blazers have defended well against St Boniface's high-powered offence, allowing only six goals over their three matches.
Weeks five and six were busy ones for the Blazers women's and men's soccer teams, which started with a mid-week night game against the visiting Providence Pilots on October 6th, and then back-to-back Thankgiving weekend games that started on the road in Brandon, and finished at home on a rainy Sunday afternoon. This past weekend Blazers women's soccer had a rare Friday night matchup with Les Rouges which was a makeup date for the postponed Thanksgiving Sunday match, and then both teams then hit the road on Sunday for their final visit to Brandon prior to the upcoming MCAC Championships.

Congratulations to Matheus Dos Anjos Aquino of Men's Soccer on being selected the CMU Zueike Male Athlete of the Month for September. The Brazilian international has made his mark on the young Blazers squad, as well as the MCAC by displaying a goal-scoring prowess not seen from this team in quite some time.
The Blazers Women's Soccer squad earned their first point in the MCAC season standings this past weekend by playing to a 1-1 draw with the defending champions Universite de Saint-Boniface Rouges. It was a huge step forward for the team, who were coming off two big losses on opening weekend to start the year. The result puts the team in the top four of the standings and into playoff position, below Les Rouges and ahead of the Assiniboine Cougars, who the Blazers matchup with this coming Saturday.
