Prairie Pilots Men’s Fustal Team claim PAC Championship trophy

Pilots Futal 2022

This past Thursday through Saturday The Pilots Futsal Teams hosted Burman University and Millar College for the PAC Championships. Thursday the men and women both lost to Burman and when the Bobcats defeated Millar on Friday night it set up a rematch Saturday night. The Lady Pilots were missing a number of their players due to illness and defensemen Brie Leuf was playing on a injured ankle. Burman ladies took gold winning 6-1 with Dani Penner the goal scorer.

In the men’s gold match The Bobcats led 1-0 at halftime but the Pilots despite being short handed because of injuries, came back with two goals in the second half to edge Burman 2-1 and claim the trophy. Elijah Miller and Nathanael Faszer were the goal scorers. The RDAC was rocking as the match went right down to the final seconds before it was decided. Nathanael Faszer was named MVP for the Pilots but many others could have won that award, and Keeper Vinny Campos was sensational in the nets.

Next action for the Pilots Futsal teams will be Saturday Feb. 19 when they host SAIT and Olds in ACAC competition.
