The WolfPack women’s soccer team finished its four-game pre­season undefeated.

The victories started with a 2-1 win over the University of Cal­gary Dinos, followed by a 1-1 tie against the Mount Royal Univer­sity Cougars, both taking place in Calgary. Back at home, the ‘Pack bested the UNBC Timberwolves twice in a row, with 3-0 and 2-0 wins over the visiting squad.

Next up for the women is their official season opener, a Sept. 12 match against the TWU Spar­tans.

The WolfPack men weren’t looking quite as steady. They tied three and lost two, playing all of their games on the road.

In Edmonton, the team first met the Edmonton Scottish, an Alberta Major Soccer League team, with a 3-3 tie. Then, also in Edmonton, the men were best­ed by the University of Calgary Dinos by a score of 4-0. Back in B.C., the team saw a similar result, playing the UNBC Tim­berwolves twice, losing their first 4-1 and tying their second 1-1.

The men will follow the wom­en at Hillside Stadium on Sept. 12 in their home opener against the TWU Spartans.
