Queens Soccer

The Red Deer Polytechnic Queens offense pulled out all the stops offensively in Red Deer on Saturday as they came away with a commanding 5-0 victory over the visiting Ambrose University Lions. 

Head Coach Mahziar Peyrow was quite pleased with his team’s play today but believes they have another gear as they enter the crucial part of their season. 

“Our team played well. We really moved the ball well from the back. I have to be honest the Lions have come a long way since last year so they have done extremely well to build. They parked the bus on us and did a great job not allowing any balls through. But our girls did well to draw them out which is when the goals started to come for us.” 

The Queens will be back in action next week Saturday at home when they take on the Olds College Broncos at 12 pm. As for the Lions, they will play the Broncos tomorrow at 2 pm in Calgary. 

Kings Soccer

The Red Deer Polytechnic Kings picked up their first victory at their home opener of the season as they defeated the Ambrose University Lions in a very tight matchup that came down to the last minute. 

Head Coach Admir Sarcevic explained his team really played with urgency in an almost must-win scenario for the Kings. 

“We knew this game coming into it was so important for us. We emphasized the whole week at training about the importance of this match against the Lions and being ready to go right from the start. We wanted to press and we pressed high and it paid off with us coming home with the victory.” 

The Legal Assistant student-athlete would pick up the player of the match for the Kings with midfielder Bryce Turnipseed (General Studiers) picking up the honours for the Lions. 

Ambrose University will be back in action at home tomorrow as they welcome the Olds College Broncos at 4 pm. The Kings will have a bye tomorrow but will take on the Broncos next week Saturday at 2 pm.
