Ooks win ACAC Men's Soccer Banner against Rival Huskies
by ACAC Sports Writer Curtis J. Phillips 10/26/2014...Lloydminster, Alberta - The word “family” was a key word, along with “guts”, when talking to Keyano Huskies men’s soccer coach Connor Brady about his program this year. Since taking over the program three years ago, Huskies having joined the ACAC soccer conference in 2002, Brady had taken a team that previously had had a best showing of 6th in 2005 ACAC standings, to the top spot in the ACAC and a No. 5 ranking in the CCAA polls. The Huskies and Brady were at their best when meeting up with the NAIT Ooks. A rivalry had started early when Brady took over the Huskies program.
