Team Captain Ben Law leads team to 2-0-1 record

The UNB men's soccer team nabbed another victory at home, defeating the Mount Allison Mounties 3-0.

 "I thought there was some really nice stretches where we pretty much composed ourselves on the opposition, so that was good to see," said head coach Miles Pinsent.
"It was nice that we got to use our entire bench and get a chance for some players to get some playing time."
Although #7 Oliver Jones was named player of the game, Benjamin Law stood out scoring at 23:07, the second of three in the game, bringing his count to 10 goals for the Varsity Reds in his career with the team.
"He's always rock solid [and] if you come to a UNB game you might not really appreciate everything that Ben does out there" said Pinsent.
"He just takes care of business and is so tidy in our back field, and then on set pieces he's always such a threat and always gets himself in a good spot."

An Ottawa native, Law is in his fifth year of eligibility with the team and was named AUS All-Star and CIS All Canadian last season. He was also the leading goal-scorer for team.

His father playing varsity soccer is one of the reasons he got into the game at the age of five

 "It's kind of just been in my family and that's what got me started," said Law.

Unsure of his next move after high school, it was friends on the Varsity team pushing him to play at UNB that motivated Law to come here.

"They just kind of pushed me to come, so I talked to Miles, and five years later … here I am."

 "I just love being around the boys. Miles usually tries to bring in guys that work together, and these guys are almost like my family."
The V-Reds improve AUS record to 2-0-1 and second place in the conference standings. 
UNB hosts UdeM tomorrow at 3:15 at the UNB BMO Centre.
