Pilots soccer teams will soon know play-off fates
2015-10-15
 
The Providence Pilots will mark Saturday’s soccer alumni festivities with afternoon matches at home to the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers.
 
Like Providence, CMU is currently positioned for play-off soccer on both the men’s and women’s sides, and with the Assiniboine Community College Cougars having cancelled an upcoming appointment with the Brandon University Bobcats the women’s showdown will be all about tournament seeding.
 
Presently fourth in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference standings, the Pilots will pull level with the Blazers with a win in Otterburne (1:00 p.m.) and go some distance toward setting up a play-off semi-final against Brandon.
 
The Red River College Rebels pace the division with seven wins from seven and will host Providence in Winnipeg on Sunday.
 
The Pilots men, meanwhile, are third in the MCAC but could still finish first should they beat CMU on Saturday (3:00 p.m.) and post a follow-up triumph over Red River on Sunday. Conversely, they could also drop out of the play-off places with a pair of defeats coupled Red River and Brandon victories.
 
Steinbach’s Mitchell Martens is the league’s joint-top scorer with 12 goals from seven outings. Providence will host the MCAC play-offs on October 24 and 25.
 
Off campus the women’s volleyball team will spend the weekend in Devils Lake, North Dakota, where they’ll be competing in the Lake Region State College invitational.
 
Impressively, the Pilots are ranked second in Division II of the National Christian College Athletic Association, having lost just two of 13 matches so far this season.
 
They’ll face Jamestown JV and Bismarck State College on Saturday before rounding out the competition with matches against the tournament hosts and Dakota College at Bottineau on Sunday.
