UNBSJ’s men’s Seawolves soccer team hosted the Crandall University Chargers in a rare Wednesday night fixture at the Canada Games Stadium.

Despite being last place in the league, the Chargers were the dominant side, with quick and constant counterattacks that kept the Seawolves defence on their toes.

In first half action, surprisingly the Seawolves struck first from a cross by winger Andrew Henry deep in the Chargers 18-yard box, with striker Shariyar Yamini tapping in the effort near the goal-line far post.

In the second half, Chargers David Mugenga hit the crossbar twice from free kicks, leaving the visiting team frustrated after a continuous barrage on the Seawolves.

Yet, with about 10 minutes remaining the game, the Chargers finally found the back of the net after extraordinary amounts of pressure.

The Seawolves put on a display with chances of their own in the second half, but were unable to light the lamp a second time, with the game ending in a 1-1 draw.

Currently sitting in second place, the men’s Seawolves soccer team hits the road this weekend to play the St. Thomas University Tommies. You can watch the game live this Saturday at 4:00p.m. by going to www.acaatv.ca
