Week 1 (Sept. 10-11) – 2022 MCAC Soccer Match Previews

Opening days for four of the five teams. There are three matches over the first two days of soccer matches to start the 2022 Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) soccer season during week one ending on September 11.

Women’s soccer:

Sept. 10: Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) Blazers at Providence University College (PUC) Pilots – 3:15 pm CT start

To start the 2022 campaign, both teams continue their rivalry from last year as PUC (0-0-0) won last year’s season opener by a 5-0 score. CMU (0-0-0) looks to reverse the result this time around.

Sept. 10: Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) Les Rouges at Brandon University (BU) Bobcats – 3:15 pm CT start

A rematch of the 2021 MCAC championship final playoff game begins the 2022 campaign for these two teams. Les Rouges (0-0-0) won that championship match by a hard fought 2-0 win and should expect the same close result for this year as Brandon (0-0-0) seeks to change the result this time around.

Sept. 11: USB Les Rouges at CMU Blazers – 3:15 pm CT start

The second match of the weekend for both teams. Depending on first game result, one of these teams could be looking at a two game win streak and a maximum of six points to start week one. The defending champs USB Les Rouges will have an opportunity for their another road victory while the Blazers is looking for a ‘W’ in front of the hometown fans in their season home opener.
