Varsity Reds remain undefeated after 2-0 victory over Axemen

UNB's men's soccer team remains undefeated after besting Acadia 2-0 in action on BMO Field today.

The first goal came around the 12-minute mark from UNB's Oliver Jones. It was the first goal of the season for Jones, who is originally from London, England.

UNB would have to wait until the second half to score again. Shea Nordheim found the net around the 48th minute. Nordheim, whose hometown is Winnipeg, has scored two goals in just four games this season.

For head coach Miles Pinsent, a 4-0 regular season record is a great result, especially considering the tough opposition the Varsity Reds faced this weekend with matches against Acadia today and CBU yesterday.

Acadia also played a tough game yesterday, beating Moncton 2-1. According to Pinsent, the stress of playing two high level matches in just 24 hours could be seen in both teams today. 

"Both teams were a little bit fatigued," he said. "I think the will was there, the intent was there, but it wasn't as tidy as it could have been."

Getting the shut-out for the Varsity Reds was Brandon Eagle. AUS Subway Player of the Game went to UNB's Marcus Lees.

The Varsity Reds have their next game when they host UPEI at 7:15pm on Friday, September 19.

Acadia will host St.FX at the same time.
