#2 ranked CMU will try to dethrone the defending champs from Providence
Providence College is hosting the 2009 MCAC Men’s and Women’s Soccer Championships on Saturday, October 24, and Sunday, October 25, in Otterburne Manitoba. The men’s bracket will be contested by Providence College, Steinbach Bible College, Canadian Mennonite University, and Collège Universitaire de Saint-Boniface. The women’s bracket will be contested by Providence College and Canadian Mennonite University.
The competition will be tight as all the visiting teams are looking to stop Providence from successfully defending their conference titles. The Providence men are hoping to secure their fourth straight MCAC title, while the Providence women are looking to secure their fifth straight.
Scott Masterson, Director of Athletics at Providence College stated, “We will be holding media conferences for each team after their Saturday games and everyone is welcome to come listen to the player and coach reactions. We would like to invite players and fans to check out our new Student Life Centre, which opened this past January. There is also a cafeteria where fans and players will be able to buy lunch, and a canteen is available to get some snacks, hot chocolate, or coffee.”
The media conference room will be in the North ELI classroom, which is located at the south side of the Student Life Centre. Also open throughout the weekend is the Providence Bookstore, which is located in the main building to the south west of the gymnasium.
