Keyano Huskies Athletics
Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference
Keyano College Huskies men’s and women’s soccer, kicked off the 2018-2019 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) preseason with a special exhibition game against the Red Deer Kings/Queens this past Saturday August 25, 2018 at Rocky Mountain House’s Curtis Field.
The match was the inaugural Chambers Memorial College Game in memory of Huskies soccer /futsal players Zara and Bridget Chambers who died in a car accident December 16, 2017.
The Huskies men tied the Kings 2-2 while the women lost to the Queens 3-0.
“It was important to recognize Zara and Bridget’s involvement with the Huskies and Rocky Mountain community as well and to continue their legacy,” said Huskies head coach Macky Singh, of the event organized by Rocky Knights Soccer in partnership with Alberta Soccer, Keyano College Athletics and Red Deer College Athletics.
“The game also shows that there is an opportunity for females from small communities (Zara and Bridget are from Rocky Mountain House) to dream and continue to play soccer at the next level and get a great education as well.”
The Chambers Memorial College Game was just one of three matches that the Huskies played this weekend as Red Deer College was hosting a pre-season tournament at Edgar Athletic Park.
Huskies men tied Ambrose University Lions 2-2 and Lethbridge Kodiaks 0-0.
Huskies women defeated the Kodiaks 3-0 and lost to SAIT Trojans 1-0.
“It was an opportunity to see where we are at and the level we are at,” said Singh. “It was a great gauge.”
Huskies open the 2018-2019 ACAC regular season September 8-9, 2018 when they host the NAIT Ooks.
