TOP 15 OF 2015-2016: #2 – VARSITY REDS STRIKE SILVER AT CIS CHAMPIONSHIP

 

In a match-up of the top ranked teams in the tournament… No. 2 Varsity Reds met the No. 1 ranked York University Lions in the CIS men’s soccer championship.

York, playing on their home turf, were bolstered by a noisy, pro-Lions crowd.

UNB had advanced to the national final with dramatic, come-from-behind wins over Victoria, in the quarter-finals, and UQAM, in the semis.

While the Lions opened the scoring in the final, the Varsity Reds kept it close.

York added a second goal, in injury time, to score a 2-0 victory.

“They’re the best competition that we’ve ever played, but I’m a little heartbroken,” said Varsity Reds midfielder Marcus Lees, who along with Diego Padilha and Kalen Park, was named to the CIS tournament all-star team.
