Against UBC-Okanagan in the season-opener last Friday night, she set up the Griffins’ first goal when she clashed with a defender at the top of the box in the 22nd minute and the ball spun over to Brittany Costa for a perfect strike. In the 59th minute, she gave MacEwan a 2-0 lead when she beat the UBCO keeper to a loose ball and found the twine. On Sunday against Thompson Rivers, Lemoine was even more dominant, taking seven of MacEwan’s 29 shots in the contest.

The two-time Canada West all-star and U SPORTS Academic All-Canadian has been a driving force for the WolfPack program all season. The 33-year-old father of two, who is also holding down a full-time job while he completes his master’s degree, has been shouldering a lot of the attention on offence. This past weekend, Glanville scored his second of the season and added an assist, as the WolfPack picked up valuable points on the road and now sit in a three-way tie for second in the Canada West Pacific Division. The WolfPack’s draw with Trinity marked the first time TRU secured points on the road against the Spartans.

Third-year University of Alberta Pandas keeper Cassie Bazzarelli is the Canada West women’s third star following back-to-back shutouts this past weekend at Foote Field. The veteran keeper was tremendous for the Pandas in their opening weekend matches, leading them to four of a possible six points against their provincial rivals. Alberta’s season-opener was an incredibly challenging one, as they hosted the U SPORTS No. 7 Calgary Dinos. Despite being outplayed for most the game by the favourite Dinos, Bazzarelli kept the Pandas alive with some timely saves, allowing the Pandas to score the game-winner in the 65th minute. The Edmonton, Alta. native backed up that performance with another strong one on Sunday, shutting out the visiting Lethbridge Pronghorns with another six saves, including a pair of highlight-reel stops in the first half. Bazzarelli and the 1-0-1 Pandas will return to the pitch this weekend, as they visit the undefeated MacEwan Griffins and the UNBC Timberwolves.

Business Administration Game log: Thursday, September 7 – game-winning goal in 1-0 W @ Saskatchewan / Saturday, September 9 – three shots in 1-1 draw @ Lethbridge. Jake Vickers left it all out on the pitch this past weekend.

  • Cougars and Pronghorns battle to a draw
    September 09, 2017
    Lethbridge – With all the scoring happening in the opening half, the Lethbridge Pronghorns and Mount Royal Cougars had to settle for a 1-1 draw on a smokey day in Lethbridge. Hayes Wittrock scored for the Pronghorns, while Joshua Munoz replied for the Cougars. Both keepers, ‘Horns Nolan French and Cougars Kryan Valley finished the day with four saves apiece. With the tie, the Pronghorns record moves to 1-3-2 and the Cougars are now 1-2-1. Early in the opening half, the Cougars put the Pronghorns on their heels and were rewarded with five early corner kicks but the Cougars were unable to capitalize. However, the Pronghorns would not make the same mistake. On their second corner kick of the match, fourth-year midfielder Stephen Primeau laid in a perfect corner for the second consecutive game and newcomer Hayes Wittrock got his head on it and past Cougar keeper Kyran Valley for his first goal as a Pronghorn. Before the half was out, the Cougars brought the game back level off a free kick from 30-yards out. ‘Horns keeper was able to get a hand on Joshua Munoz’s blast but not enough to keep it out of the net. It was Munoz’s first goal of the season. At the half, both teams had seven shot attempts but the Cougars were the more accurate team, forcing French into three saves, while Valley made two for the Cougars. Early in the second half, the Pronghorns were awarded a penalty kick on a hand ball in the box. Newcomer Ellis Davies stepped up to the spot but Valley picked the right side, diving to his left to make the save. The Cougars upped the offensive pressure but couldn’t find the back of the net. Richard Nyavor had the best look for the visitors but his attempt rang off the post. With less than two minutes remaining, Davies had a glorious chance point blank to put the Pronghorns ahead but Valley was in the right spot to make the save. Next up for the Pronghorns is another road trip, heading west to face the Trinity Western Spartans and Thompson Rivers WolfPack. The Cougars are also on the road to face the UNBC Timberwolves and the Victoria Vikes
  • Cougars, Dinos Play Hard Fought Scoreless Draw in First Round of Crowchild Classic.
    September 10, 2017
    CALGARY- The Mount Royal University Cougars played hosts to the first Crowchild Classic match of the year against cross-town rivals the University of Calgary Dinos. The game was a hard fought battle between the two Calgarian sides but ultimately the match finished at 0-0. The first half saw the visitors control most of the possession and the Cougars had a few miscommunications in the first half which almost proved costly. Cougars keeper Cailyn Leeson was perfect on the day making a total of nine saves. The Dinos drew the first chance, inside five minutes, after a defensive miscommunication lead to a Dino forward jumping in between the defender and keeper and chipping a shot over the bar. Later Leeson was forced to be on her toes again, lunging backwards to tip the oncoming ball, shot from distance, over the bar at the last second. Afterwards, Calgary Dino Natalie Arnett weaved in between two Cougar defenders and found herself alone against Leeson. She drew the unsuspecting keeper to the top of her box, dribbled around her but ran out of real estate. This forced her to strike the ball against the near post instead of into the open goal.
  • Cougars withstand late Pronghorn pressure to win first game of the season
    September 09, 2017
    CALGARY-AB, Mount Royal Cougars women’s soccer season started off with a 2-1 victory against cross province opposition, University of Lethbridge Pronghorns. A very steady first half had threatening chances come from both sides with Cougars keeper Cailyn Leeson being tested and was forced to be on her toes blocking away a few of breakaway chances and tipping some shots over the net. The Cougars connected on a good number of one-two’s to create chances from open play but couldn’t finish the close chances in front of goal Pronghorns however, put the first points on the board in the 22nd minute on a rebound tapped in courtesy of fifth year senior Nikki Furukawa after a shot on Leeson slipped off her body on the first shot and at a full stretched effort, couldn’t reach the oncoming second shot. Cougars answered right back in the 35th minute after Janai Martens lobbed a ball over the flatfooted Pronghorn defence to first year Jullien Ramírez who chested the ball down with class and slotted the ball in the top netting with precision on a volley to net her first of young season and tied the game at 1-1. Sophmore Quinn Hardstaff put away a penalty kick in the 54th minute on a handball call awarded by the referee to the home side. Third year Erin Holt started the second half as a point of emphasis for the Cougars causing trouble with every touch along the sidelines causing dangerous chances. With Holt motivating her squad, the Cougars kept the press at a high along with the intensity levels conatstntly stirring up a Pronghorn side that drew three yellow cards and keeping the chances coming. Carly Neis had the best chance off the early momentum swing as she chipped the ball over Lethbridge netminder Paige Gattafoni only to ring the ball of the crossbar. Lethbridge pressed late to try and steal points on the road but couldn’t crack a strong willed Cougars defence who picked up their first win of the season. Mount Royal hosts the first edition of the Crowchild Classic on Sunday morning against the Univeristy of Calgary Dinos with kickoff scheduled for 11am.
  • Super-Sub Vickers Lifts Cougars Past Huskies
    September 07, 2017
    SASKATOON – A second half goal was all the Mount Royal University Cougars needed to lift the 1-0 over the University of Saskatchewan Huskies for their first win of the 2017 Canada West men's soccer season on Field 7 in PotashCorp Park in Saskatoon on Thursday. Fourth-year Cougar defender Jake Vickers checked into the match in the 61st minute and found his way on the scoresheet just six minutes later. Vickers buried his first of the year after receiving a touch from teammate Yusuph Kalenga just outside of the box in the 67th minute. Vickers' strike got past the sprawling Huskie goalkeeper, Patrick Pranger. The first half saw the Huskies come close to taking a lead going into halftime. In the 42nd minute, Huskies striker Mohammed Omar split a couple of Cougar defenders before sending a strike just off of the cross bar behind Cougar keeper Kyran Valley. Third-year midfielder Gabriel Buatois took the ensuing Huskies corner kick as the Huskies looked to capitalize on the opportunity before the half was over. However, Valley kept the score sheet clean making a couple of critical stops before the half came to a close. Mount Royal's best chance of the first 45 minutes was on a rebound off of Pranger's hands after a Cougars' strike. The rebound found its way to Kylan Johnson who found the back of the net but the play was called offside. Coming out of the half, Mount Royal's collective defensive play made it difficult for the Huskies to generate any quality scoring chances that they previously saw in the first half. Valley earned the clean sheet for the Cougars, making four saves in the shutout, while Pranger finished the match with three saves. The Cougars (1-2-0) travel to Lethbridge to take on the Pronghorns on Saturday. While the Huskies (3-2-0) stay at home to play the Calgary Dinos. Match begins on Saturday at 2 p.m. on Field 7 in PotashCorp Park.

Around the midway point of the first half came the Cougars best chance of the half. First-year forward Kylan Johnson teed up a bicycle-kick of a cross delivered by Yusuph Kalenga that was denied by a strong left palm by fifth-year senior Goalkeeper Connor James. Alberta got on the board first in the 37th minute after a penalty kick awarded when a long ball played from behind half lead to an air duel between Cougar keeper Kyran Valley and Sebastian Crema of the Bears. Ajeej Sarkaria slotted the ball past a diving Valley who guessed the right way but was a fingertip away from a save. The second half was filled with feisty plays on both ends of the field with yellow cards being sent both ways for a total of six. Cougars pressed in the latter half of the game but the ball just didn't bounce the right way for the home side this afternoon. Justin Anderson-Louch had a hit from distance but the low driven ball forced James to dive wide and catch the ball. A last ditch effort by Richard Nyavor was tipped over the cross bar by the Golden Bear netminder as he was tested all game and saved his best efforts for last. Nyavor charged up field with the ball, dribbling past the Alberta defence until being stopped in the one-on-one battle Tomorrow Mount Royal will play at 1:30 PM against MacEwen at Cougar Stadium Field.
  • We Are The Cougars: Mount Royal University unveils new, inclusive Cougars brand

The new logos also maintain strong ties with Mount Royal’s institutional branding through a consistent colour palette. Even though Mount Royal has been around more than 100 years, the Cougars name first came to light in 1960 where it began as a collegiate football team, winning a provincial championship in their inaugural season. While the football team no longer exists, the Cougars pride was adopted by all the institutions athletic teams in the ’60s and has lived on for more than five decades. Director of Athletics and Recreation, Karla Karch, says, “The Cougars strive to provide our student-athletes and recreation users with an exceptional experience. This brand and the spirit of MRU is a key component of that experience.” In 2016, a year-long visual identity refresh project began with strategic planning and included feedback from students, alumni, faculty and staff. Research found that the true value of the Cougars brand was to make it more available and inclusive for everyone on campus and everyone who has a connection to MRU. “This new identity for the Cougars builds a renewed sense of pride across campus,” says Mount Royal University President, Dr. David Docherty. “Together, we can share in this campus spirit, because together we are the Cougars.” MRU Cougars Introducing We Are The Cougars We are the Cougars – everyone who is part of our community, and everyone who is invested in the success of Mount Royal University is welcomed and encouraged to embrace the Cougars spirit. That spirit may have its roots in Athletics, but it has tremendous power to unify our campus. The new Cougars brand Designed by a collaborative internal Mount Royal University committee and external Edmonton-based graphic design firm Artslinger, the new brand unifies the Mount Royal University campus. The new visual identity provides options for application throughout the University outside of varsity athletics.
