(WOLFVILLE, NS) The UNB Varsity Reds are AUS soccer champions... again. The 2-1 win over the No. 1 seeded Cape Breton Capers makes it a "three-peat" for the VReds and the second championship win in a row by the score of 2-1 against the Capers.
With a stiff wind blowing against UNB in the first half, the Capers were at an advantage, but only had a handful of opportunities.
After a scoreless first half, the Varsity Reds went to work recording most of their seven shots on goal in the second half.
"When Marcus goes down on the wing, I am always looking to get in the box and nine times out of ten I know a cross is coming", commented Jones. "I saw the ball late, but made sure I was following in and it was a nice easy goal."
The goal took a bit of wind out of the sails of the Capers and just over three minutes later third year defender Kalen Park (Calgary, AB) netted the Varsity Reds' second goal, on a corner kick that curved into the far corner untouched by keeper Scott Shewfelt (London, ON) or any other Caper or VRed.
As the relentless wind slowed the Caper's progress, UNB locked down their defensive unit and denied Cape Breton of any significant scoring opportunities.
