Lions Win First Ever ACAC Outdoor Soccer Game

Lions Win First Ever ACAC Outdoor Soccer Game

Lions Mens Soccer Game October 12, 2018

The cold and blustery night in Calgary did not keep tensions from getting hot in Ambrose Home Opener!  A heated battle took place as the Ambrose Lions defeated the Rattlers, achieving their first win of the season. The Lions struck quickly as a Matthew Wideman scored in the 32nd minute taking the Lions into the half with a 1-0 lead. 

Following the goal, Lions athletes Austin Carter and Matias Hains both picked up yellow cards in the 35th minute. Lucas Reimer and Colton Pacheo also picked up yellow cards during the game. 

The Lions scored quickly in the 2nd half. In the 48th minute, Matthew Wideman netted his 2nd of the game. Not long after tensions flared again seeing Matais Hains pick up his 2nd yellow card in the 56th minute leading to his ejection. Even with a man short in the final half hour, the Lions managed to hold the Rattlers at bay to win their first ever ACAC Outdoor Soccer game 2-0. 

The Lions had to wait a few extra minutes before they were able to celebrate as a collision between a Lions and a Rattler led to a net breaking.  Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident. 

Up next the Lions take on the Lethbridge Kodiaks tomorrow afternoon.
