    As the remainder of the men’s soccer regular season schedule continues to dwindle and is pushed back a week due to the storm at the end of September, Cape Breton, Moncton and Memorial all celebrated very winning weekends.

    The first-ranked Capers (8-0-2), who’ve locked in a first-round bye at the Subway AUS Men’s Soccer Championship, made it three wins in a row with their 3-0 at-home victory over the Dalhousie Tigers. In the ninth minute, CBU opened the scoring on a marker from Subway player of the game Cian Lynch (Dublin, Ireland), who capitalized on a pass from Owen Sheppard (St. John’s, NL). 

    Late in the first half, the Capers doubled their edge off a corner-kick opportunity, with Lynch tallying his second of the match to make it 2-0 heading to the locker room. The Capers upped their edge to 3-0 on a goal from Spizzirri, in the 70th minute, with the assist going to Lynch.  Dalhousie’s Aiden Rushenas made 9 saves for the Tigers while Cape Breton’s Daniel Clarke tallied three.

    Moncton (5-2-3) celebrated their third and fourth consecutive wins and secured fifth place in the AUS standings and a spot in the upcoming playoffs over the weekend. On Friday, the Aigles Bleus topped the Acadia Axemen 3-1, with Jonathan Kisse (Toronto, ON) scoring the game-winner in the 61st minute and earning Subway player of the game. On Saturday, it was Mount Allison who would fall to Moncton, who recorded a decisive 4-0 win.

    In St. John’s, Memorial’s Sea-Hawks squad had two wins over UPEI (0-8-2)—2-0 on Friday and 2-1 on Saturday. Jacob Grant (St. John’s) was awarded Subway player of the game for Memorial on Friday, adding a goal and assist to the win. On Saturday, first-year Daniel Hanlon (Portugal Cove, NL) earned the honour by saving six of seven shots on goal.

    The fourth-ranked STFX X-Men (6-3-1) visited the Saint Mary’s Huskies (6-3-2) on Wednesday and clinched a playoff berth thanks to a 3-1 win. It was a physical game and a total of seven yellow cards were dished out; Logan Rieck was named Subway player of the game with a goal and an assist. Both Jensen Brown and X-Men goalkeeper Samuel Diltz (Newmarket, ON) recorded four saves on the evening. Later in the week, the X-Men hosted the sixth-place Dalhousie Tigers (4-3-4), who edged out the home team 3-2. Tigers goals came from Kyle Routledge and Mohammed Jaber (with two), while Max Bodurtha and Logan Rieck scored for the X-Men.

    On Friday, Saint Mary’s hosted the second-place UNB REDS (7-1-2) for what would end up a scoreless draw. The Huskies’ Ryan Davis made seven saves while the REDS’ Louis-Charles Vaillancourt made five. UNB would continue their Nova Scotia road trip at Acadia on Saturday, where they’d score two unanswered goals to eventually win 2-1. Lars Gierull was named Subway player of the game for the REDS with three shots and an assist; Angad Panesar (Brampton, ON) and Liam MacGowan (New Westminster, BC) scored for UNB, while Liam Kelly (Abbotsford, BC) scored for the home team.
