The Humber Hawks successfully defended the CCAA Men’s Soccer National Championship with a shutout win over the host Keyano Huskies. In fact, the Hawks did not give up a single goal over the course of the national championship, having outscored their opponents 11-0 entering the final matchup at Shell Places’ SMS Equipment Stadium.
With a large crowd in attendance the hometown Huskies ended up behind the eight ball at the 26 minute mark when Francis Kailondo was given a red card. The Hawks had faced a similar situation last year when they played two men down in the gold medal game against the Capilano Blues. Despite this, the first half ended in a tie.
However three minutes into the second half, Jordan Piccinin finished off a scramble in front of the Huskie’s net with a goal for the Hawks. Kingsley Boasiako scored a header off of a corner kick at 74 minutes which made it 2-0 for the Hawks, more than enough to secure the gold medals.
The Huskies put up a strong challenge earning their silver medals, capping off an exciting week of CCAA soccer in in Fort McMurray Alberta.
