As captain of the Assiniboine Community College women’s futsal team, Kate Broadhead has earned every single bit of that designation so far this season.
Back in the MCAC’s Week 16, Broadhead played hero by leading a depleted Cougars lineup to their first win of the season against Universite de Saint-Boniface. ACC could only dress 5 athletes for the match, forced to play conservatively and without any substitutions. With a final score of 5-4, Broadhead buried 3 of ACC’s goals despite missing a number of her teammates to injury and ACC’s hockey program.
“While the goals were much needed it was really her calm presence on the floor and her ability to control her team as a unit that made the difference for us,” said head coach, Brian Cornick. “The team played offensively and defensively as one unit.”
In Week 17, the Cougars weren’t able to get a win off Red River College or Canadian Mennonite University but of her team’s 5 total goals scored on the weekend, Broadhead was again responsible for 3 of them.
“Although the Cougars lost both games last weekend, Kate continues to be a standout athlete” adds ACC’s Athletic Director, Beth Clark.
Studying Geographic Information Systems at ACC, Broadhead was also an integral part of ACC’s soccer program this season being named to the MCAC All-Star team back in October.
Broadhead and the Cougars now sit 5th in the Conference with 3 points, which they look to improve upon this weekend when they host Red River College and Canadian Mennonite University at home.
