“We’ve gone through the toughest stage. Tomorrow we go back at it again.We worked hard today, we defended, we attacked, we played our game, we never changed ourselves,“  said Huskies head coach Murad Sukru, in a postgame Locker- room talk to the team. “Towards the end we got a little bit too aggressive and had some unnecessary fouls.”

 

Assistant coach Angel Goldson added: “At some point in time out there, it looked like we were losing our way and we were slowing it down before speeding it back up again. They were were coming in hard on us and then we figured it out and started getting the ball on foot again. ”

 

The Huskies and Hurricanes had met twice in previous CCAA regular round action with the Huskies winning 3-1 and 5-2 in 2015 and 2014 respectively.

Keyano Huskies become only the third Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) school, since 1983-1984, to win three or more consecutive ACAC Men's Soccer Championships as they defeated the NAIT Ooks 1-0 at Sherwood Park's Emerald Hills Sports Pavilion yesterday.
