Congratulations to Paul Odedina, first-year forward from the CMU Blazers men’s futsal team, who is our male athlete of the week.
The Blazers pivot notched two goals in their 5-2 win over the RRC Rebels last Friday to help secure second place in the conference heading into this weekend’s championships.
“Paul has grown a lot as a player since the beginning of the Futsal season,” said head coach Anderson Pereira, “The goals he scored last week are proof that his strength and quality are great assets to our team. He has been working hard to earn a spot as a target player and he knows that our team trusts him to score or assist.
“We expect another good performance against a top-quality team next Saturday to hopefully make it to the final on Sunday,” Pereira finished.
The Blazers (8-1-1) will take on the Providence Pilots (5-0-5) on Saturday, March 9 at 5:00 PM at Red River College in the men’s semifinals of the 2019 MCAC Futsal Championships.
