A first-year community studies student from Preston, United Kingdom, Bent was named championship MVP of the 2016 Subway AUS Men's Soccer Championship held this past weekend at UNB.
Bent scored both of Cape Breton's goals in their 2-1 semifinal win over the StFX X-Men in extra time on Friday. He then had another strong offensive performance in Sunday's 3-1 championship final win over the Acadia Axemen.
With the win, the Capers captured their fourth AUS men's soccer banner in 10 years. They now move on to compete in the national championship being hosted this week by Guelph University.
