Broncos Fall In ACAC WSOC Quarter-Finals; Macky Singh Wins MSOC South Coach of the Year

The Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves won the ACAC women's soccer championship on Sunday, October 29th in Olds. The Wolves got past the NAIT Ooks 2-1 in a shootout in the gold medal game. On Friday, GPRC eliminated the Olds College Broncos by beating them 3-0 in the quarter-finals. Meantime, the ACAC South Division's men's soccer Coach of the Year is Macky Singh from the Olds College Broncos. Singh guided the Broncos to their best record since joining the conference in 2012 with 2 wins, 6 losses and 2 draws.

For the second straight season the Olds College Broncos women's soccer team advanced to the ACAC quarter-finals.
 
Unfortunately, for the second year in a row they also wound up losing in the quarter-finals to the Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves.
 
The Wolves won 3-2 in Edmonton in 2016. Yesterday GPRC spoiled the Olds College's weekend of hosting the provincial championships by blanking the Broncos 3-nil.
 
OC's Head Coach Macky Singh was proud of his team's effort - especially considering it was a makeshift line-up following some bad luck prior to the start of the playoffs.
 
 
In a year in which the Broncos had the opportunity to host the ACAC championships, Singh says it was a tough way to lose.
 
 
Singh notes Olds College's women's soccer team posted its best regular season record since joining the conference in 2012 this year with 6 wins, 3 losses and a tie.

Meantime, the Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves went on to win the ACAC women's soccer championship on Sunday, October 29th at Normie Kwong Park in Olds. The Wolves got past the NAIT Ooks 2-1 in a shootout in the gold medal game.
 
Concordia University of Edmonton captured the bronze with a 4-2 triumph over SAIT.

Macky Singh from the Olds College Broncos men's soccer team is the 2017 South Division Coach of the Year.
 
After that announcement was made last week during the conference's men's soccer banquet in Edmonton, Singh says he was speechless.
 
 
With about 16 players eligible to return for next year, Singh is excited to see how the Broncos men's soccer team will build on this year's success.
 

Meantime, at the ACAC championships in Sherwood Park on Sunday, October 29th the Keyano College Huskies won yet another title.
 
The Huskies became only the third men's soccer team in the conference since 1984 to win three straight provincial championships as they beat NAIT 1-nil in the gold medal game.
