Kodiaks Overpower the Lions

Kodiaks Overpower the Lions

Lions Mens Soccer Game October 13, 2018

Coming off their first ever ACAC Outdoor Soccer victory last night vs the Medicine Hat Rattlers, the Ambrose Lions Men's Soccer team looked to carry over momentum and confidence into tonight's game against the Lethbridge Kodiaks. However, the Kodiaks would be too strong for the Lions, winning 5 – 0.  The Kodiaks scored early and often as they quickly brought the Ambrose team back down from their emotional high.

The Lethbridge Kodiaks took advantage of the Lions mistakes early as it only took #10 Wilson Ntignee 5 minutes to boot his first of the game past Ambrose keeper, Jared Zimmer, from a well-timed and accurate cross by teammate Taylor Laviolette.  

While not for a lack of effort from the Ambrose Soccer Team, Lethbridge worked well together to limit the Lions' shots on goal to just 2.  By the end of the night, Kodiak Wilson Ntignee had scored a hat-trick, scoring in the 6th minute, 29th minute and 88th minute. Fellow teammates, Jimmy Bukuru and Ben Knight also netted goals in the 74th and 81st minutes respectfully.  

The Lions were aggressive in the 2nd half but the Kodiaks deserved the win after playing a strong game as a full unit.   

Players of the Game were, for the Kodiaks Taylor Laviolette, and for the Ambrose Lions, Regan McCaffrey. The Lions get a quick turnaround to lick their wounds before they play host to SAIT this Tuesday at 8:00pm
