Jessica Gzebb named Week 1/2 Athlete of the Week

After finishing the 2013 season undefeated, and capturing their second straight MCAC title, the Providence Pilots wanted to pick up exactly where they left off last season – in the win column.

Jessica Gzebb was a big piece of Providence’s success last year, and after her contribution to the Pilots 2-0 record after Week 2, it appears she’s picking up exactly where she left off as well.

This past weekend, the second-year Gzebb finished with two goals and three assists as the Pilots cruised to a 4-0 victory against CMU, and scraped out a hard-fought 2-1 win against Brandon University. Despite the pair of goals, head coach Dante Calla credited her passing for her success on the pitch.

“Jessica was vital to our ability to move the ball and create scoring options,” says Calla. “She’s one of the best passers we’ve ever seen at Providence, and her intelligence on the field is unmatched. Jessica will continue to be a big influence for the team this season”

The Pilots have a big weekend ahead of them as they have two games on tap, including a matchup against the undefeated Red River Rebels at home. This Providence team has a lot of firepower on it, but don’t be surprised if it’s once again it is Jessica Gzebb who sparks things up for the Pilots offense this weekend.

Anderson Periera named Week 1/2 Athlete of the Week

For Red River College, the first game of the season was more than just a routine regular season game. Facing the Blazers, the Rebels wanted to establish that they’re a better team than their 3-5 record showed last season. Defeating the team who finished one win ahead of them in last year’s standings would be a crucial first step. 

The Rebels ended up getting the 3-2 win, and one of the major pieces of that victory, and Red River’s hot start to the season, was first-year midfielder, Anderson Periera.

The 5’8 Brazilian really stood out against CMU, capitalizing when his team needed him, scoring two goals including the eventual game winner. Periera continued his strong play into the Rebel’s 6-1 win against ACC, setting up two of the team’s goals, and impressing head coach Jordan Goetting in the process.

“Anderson’s work ethic and tremendous engine really helped us get to our 2-0 start,” said Goetting when asked about Periera’s play.

With two games next week, Periera and the Rebels will have a chance to increase their lead in the standings, and continue their hot start to the season. A new season means a new start, and when a player like Periera joins your team, your potential just keeps getting higher.

Weeks 1 & 2 are combined due to only a two games being played in Week 1. 

2014 MCAC Soccer Season Preview


School is once again in session, and although that means it’s back from the lake and into the textbooks, it also means we’re back to the pitch, as athletes gear up for yet another season of MCAC soccer beginning this Sunday, September 7th. If a new season alone doesn’t provide enough excitement, this MCAC season is chock-full of storylines to help make this perhaps the most anticipated soccer season yet.

Last season, soccer fans in Brandon got their first taste of the MCAC, as the Brandon-based Assiniboine Community College Cougars made their debut in the conference. But ACC’s tenure as Brandon’s lone home team will come to a quick end in Week Two, as the newest member of the MCAC, the Brandon University Bobcats, will kick off their season against the Université de Saint-Boniface, and the Providence Pilots.

Not only does BU’s presence bring even more competition to the season, it’s also sure to ignite a hometown rivalry between the Bobcats and Cougars when they face-off throughout the season.

Despite the new crop of competition, the Providence Pilots are looking to make a run at the three-peat, after taking home championships in both the men and women’s leagues in both of the last two seasons. Last season, the women went undefeated, while the men only lost one game to Université de Saint-Boniface.

With more teams in the league, and developing programs throughout the conference, it’s going to be harder than ever for the Pilots to pull off another championship season. However, until someone knocks them off their throne, Providence is still the team to beat.

Whether it’s the emergence of the Université de Saint-Boniface team, the tight rivalry between the Red River College and CMU women’s teams, or the serious developing talents of their men’s squads, the 2014 season should be a competitive one from beginning to end.

A conclusion will come in the Final Four’s in October, but in this case the journey is shaping up to be just as exciting as the result. The season begins this Sunday, so make sure you check the website for scores, schedules, stats, and stories from another season in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference.  





Brandon University becomes official member of the MCAC

This week’s MCAC annual general meeting brought good news for Brandon University, and for the conference, as Brandon will compete in men and women’s soccer this season after being officially accepted as a member of the MCAC.

The Bobcats will join Providence University College, Canadian Mennonite University, Université de Saint-Boniface, Red River College, and their Brandon neighbour Assiniboine Community College as members of the soccer program, and will try to make a big splash in September as their first season in the MCAC gets underway.

The meetings also brought forth a change in leadership for the MCAC, with Red River College’s Athletic Director Shane Ray taking over as MCAC President, as Larry Shannon from Assiniboine Community College retires from his position.

MCAC Announces Coaches of the Year

With the athletic seasons all wrapped up, the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) has announced the coaches of the year in each sport. They are listed below:

Men's Soccer: Martin Ward, Providence University College
Women's Soccer: Dante Calla, Providence University College
Men's Volleyball: Matt Klippenstein, University of Winnipeg College
Women's Volleyball: Lee J. Montgomery, University of Winnipeg College
Men's Basketball: Sukhvir Singh, Red River College
Women's Basketball: Jaenas Pangilinan, Red River College

In soccer, Martin Ward continued to add to his excellent coaching resume, leading the Providence Pilots to their second straight MCAC title. On the women’s side, Dante Calla was able to complete the Providence sweep, helping coach his team to yet another championship.

It was the University of Winnipeg who were crowned in volleyball this year, with some great coaching for both of their teams. For the men, it was first time MCAC coach Matt Klippenstein who received the honour, and Lee J. Montgomery for the women.

In basketball, we have two familiar winners in Jaenas Pangilinan and Sukvir Singh from Red River College. Pangilinan helped his team earn their third straight championship, where Singh furthers the Rebels dynasty, coaching his team to their sixth straight title.

Pangilinan and Singh were also honoured fat the Basketball Manitoba Awards banquet for yet another impressive season in the MCAC.
