The Providence Pilots women’s futsal team is in a Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference play-off position after beating Les Rouge de l’Universite de Saint-Boniface 7-3 on Thursday.
 
The men’s side, thanks to a 3-3 draw with Saint-Boniface, is just two points back of a post-season berth.
 
Both games, with took place in Otterburne, were full of excitement and entertained the crowds that came out to support their Pilots.
 
In the women’s match the Pilots dominated Saint-Boniface. With a locked-down defense and fervent attack, the home team added a second win to their record, which is now 2-2 on the season. Three Pilots netted goals in the game, led by star forward Julika Kehler, who scored a quartet, freshman Amelia Reimer, who added a brace, and Doro Schulz, who also found the back of the net.
 
The Pilots are now fourth in the MCAC.
 
Head coach Tory Walker stated that it was through hard work and determination that his team got the result.
 
“I was really pleased with how we played today,” he said. “We had a week of hard practices and the way we played showed that our preparation and hard work pays off. This was a win that we can be proud of, and as a coach I am proud of the way we played. We had relentless work ethic, determination and passion, and the scoreline showed exactly that.”
 
On the men’s side the Pilots also entertained, and again three Providence players found the back of the net: Hunter Robertson, Herby Magny and Jameslee Louis.
 
The match looked to be going in the Pilots favour. At 2-2 and midway through the second half a quick substitution saw Robertson enter the game, and in less than 15 seconds he delivered a strike to put Providence up 3-2. However, a costly foul led to a Saint-Boniface free-kick, which was converted.
 
Although his team didn’t get the win, head coach Joey Passi was pleased with the performance.
 
“We played a great game with awesome defense, and we got a result,” he said. “This was a game that showed what we are capable of, and I thought we should have won with our effort. Unfortunately, the free-kick with under a minute left cost us the win, but I am proud of how we played and responded.”
 
The futsal teams’ next matches are February 8 when they take on Saint-Boniface in Winnipeg.
