Broncos Spoil Ambrose Soccer Senior Night

Lions Mens Soccer Game October 21, 2018

In their final game of the first ever season competing in the ACAC Outdoor Soccer League, the Ambrose Lions men's soccer team played at home against the Olds College Broncos.  

For Everett Sylvester, Lucas Reimer, Jared Zimmer, Adam Keizer, Reagan McCaffry, Matthew Wideman, Alejandro Beckdorf and Caden DenOusten, graduation, running out of years of eligibility or other circumstances, meant it was their last chance to play in front of the home crowd. 

In the 34th minute, #17 from Olds College, Abu Bangura, had a great opportunity to score but was denied by Ambrose Lions goalie, Jared Zimmer. Four minutes later, Jacob McLarney would open the scoring for the Bronchos. At half the Lions would make a substitution in net, allowing Matthew Stacey an opportunity. Stacey played extremely well, making a full-out diving save shortly after coming in, but he too would surrender a goal to the Broncos. Ryan Wolff scored the goal, putting the Broncos up 2-0.  In the 75th minute, Kru Huska would get one back for the Lions, but this was as close as they would come to victory.

A strong last 15 minutes by the Lions was not enough to score a 2nd past keeper David Rodriguez. Ambrose pushed hard in the last few minutes and yellow cards were handed out to each team. Despite the great support from the Lions fans, the men were unable to even the score. Players of the games were Kru Huska and Ryan Wolff for the Lions and Broncos respectively.
