In a game tighter than most would have imagined, the Humber College Hawks narrowly defeated the Brandon University Bobcats 1-0 on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at the 2021 CCAA Men’s Soccer National Championship hosted by SAIT.
The Hawks, winners of five CCAA titles since 2012, seemed to start slow but found their footing about 15 minutes in with some offensive pressure. To their credit, the Bobcats defended their half of the field well and were able to keep the ball out of their net.
Humber scored what turned out to be the game-winner when Luca Uccello beat the Bobcats’ keeper Ryder Anthony in the 19th minute.
Brandon applied a bit of pressure in the second half, but could not find the equalizer.
Humber now moves on to the event’s semifinals Thursday at 3pm MST where they will meet Montmorency College. Brandon falls to the consolation side and will take on the NAIT Ooks at 10am MST.
The Players of the Game were Osman Hussein for the Hawks and Nathan Chubaty for the Bobcats.
