Nov. 9, 2017
KAMLOOPS, B.C. (U SPORTS) – The Cape Breton Capers proved how dominant an offense they have.
The AUS champions opened up the 2017 U SPORTS Respect Group Men's Soccer Championship with a 3-0 win over the UQAM Citadins, the RESQ finalists.
U SPORTS Second Team All-Canadian and All-Rookie Charlie Waters scored the match's first goal in the 43rd minute, getting his head on the ball from a long throw-in from Max Raab to beat Citadins keeper Valentin Lamoulin.
Cape Breton outshot UQAM 14-2 in the first half.
In the second half, Waters added a second tally in the 66th minute, breaking up a UQAM rush and taking the ball in alone to beat Lamoulin.
The Capers added another goal in the 73rd minute when Caelan Budhoo scored on the short side as he drove in from the right side.
Cape Breton keeper Ben Jackson got the shutout facing only one shot on goal.
"I thought we prepared very well for the match," said U SPORTS Coach of the Year Dean Morley of Cape Breton. "We implemented a game plan which took away their threats very well. We were patient and created good chances and stuck with what we wanted to do."
The Capers will meet the host Thompson Rivers WolfPack in one championship semifinal on Friday at 11:30 p.m. AST / 7:30 p.m. PT.
