The NAIT Ooks took control early and never let up. The Edmontonians received a goal just three minutes into the game, as they defeated the MCAC champion Brandon University Bobcats 6-0 in their CCAA bronze medal quarter-final match played Thursday November 11 morning at SAIT’s Cohos Commons Field at the 2021 CCAA Men’s Soccer National Championship.
The early marker was the first of four for Ousman Maheshe, who also found the back of the net in 47th, 63rd and 67th minutes of the game.
Teammate Matthew Zima had an impressive outing himself, scoring a pair of goals (15’, 54’).
NAIT goalkeeper Ryan Gillie was not very busy, but earned the clean sheet in the victory.
The Ooks will move on to the bronze medal semifinal game, which will be played Friday afternoon at 3pm MST. Brandon ends the tournament at 0-2.
Maheshe was an obvious choice for NAIT’s Player of the Game, while Brandon’s Diego Rodriguez earned his team’s honour.
