Aquino Scores Dos in Blazers Home Opener

Rookie striker Matheus Aquino scored once in each half on Sunday afternoon, as CMU topped the Brandon Bobcats 2-1 to wrap up Week 1 MCAC men's soccer action.

The early stages of the match saw the visitors create most of the attacking chances while CMU absorbed the Bobcats' pressure. Brandon's best chance in the opening half came in the 11th minute on a volley from the foot of Diego Rodriguez. The former MCAC all-conference selection ran onto a lob pass at the edge of the 18-yard box and struck a dipping shot labelled for the top corner only to see his shot equalled by Blazers first-year goalkeeper, Brayden Abbott, at full stretch.

Opening weekend of the MCAC 2021-22 soccer season has come and gone, and it has left a bad taste in the mouths of the Blazers women's soccer squad who now have their work cut out for them if they want to climb the standings and stand among the leagues top teams come October.

The Blazers started their campaign on the road in Otterburne facing the Providence Pilots on Saturday. What appeared to be a solid start for the rookie-heavy team entering the second half down 0-1 to the home side soon turned into a second half nightmare as the Pilots went on to net an additional four markers to take the match 5-0. Ayesha Umar, a new addition to the Blazers side led the team with three of CMU's eight total shots on goal, but none managed to find the back of the net.
