With week six of soccer action coming to a close, the Dinos men stand in fifth place with only two wins under their belt. The second win came Fri., Oct. 15, courtesy of the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, again. The Huskies’ Jordan Schidlowsky scored first at the 22 minute mark, leaving the Dinos to take… Continue reading Soccer and snow?
The University of Calgary men’s soccer team is looking for a few good men. Well, maybe just one. Head Coach Andy Gibbs is choosing a new captain this week and he’s looking for more than just a good player. “Maradonna’s a good player–but would you follow Maradonna? No, he’s an idiot,” said Gibbs in jest.… Continue reading Young and manly, but leaderless
The Dinos men’s soccer team can’t seem to win for trying. On a chilly afternoon, the University of Victoria Vikes bared the brisk winter-like temperatures here in Calgary to beat the Dinos men 5-1 Sun., Oct. 24. With a delayed game due to snow on the field and a sparse gathering of fans, the men… Continue reading A losing weekend
The Dinos men’s basketball team was disappointedly eliminated from playoffs Feb. 18-20.

After defeating the Bears 78-76 on Friday, the Dinos were trounced 79-69 and 86-68 on Saturday and Sunday respectively. This is the third… Continue reading Dinos miss golden opportunity
The Dinos men’s basketball team traveled far and away to the University of Alberta Dec. 3-4, hoping to take a pair of wins from the Golden Bears.

Talent With fewer newcomers than last year, this team was still on the young side. However, they didn’t lack talent. They had many consistent contributors who shone on some days and blended in on others. The stats from the regular season didn’t show this team’s true potential. Effort Scrappy, indeed. That shows heart. When they… Continue reading Report Card: Men’s Soccer
This final week of regular season soccer competition was full of Pronghorns and Pandas and Dinos, oh my! A Pronghorn, more commonly called an antelope, uses its sharp vision to see danger and its superior agility to run away from it. The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns were ecologically disappointing this past weekend. They neither saw… Continue reading Thank the Lord we’re hosting
Perhaps the University of Calgary men’s soccer team was still recovering from their big “cabaret” when they went out on the road last weekend. The men couldn’t even manage to score. This isn’t usually a problem according to rumors on the sidelines. The first game, on Thu., Sept. 30, Trinity Western University slaughtered the Dinos.… Continue reading Men can’t score
The men’s soccer game on Sat., Sept. 25 against the University of British Columbia T-Birds was “eerily similar” to previous games this season. The Dinos must like it from behind, because they spent most of the game catching up to the T-Birds. The first goal came from a blatantly offside Luke Sandilands of UBC. The… Continue reading Soccersaurs settle for a tie
This past weekend played out like a daytime soap opera for the Dinos men’s soccer team. Their first regular season game, on Sat., Sept. 18 against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, was entertaining and full of drama with bad acting from the Huskies that wouldn’t even win a “Soapie” award. Huskies’ keeper Jonathon Neufeld was… Continue reading Lovers or fighters?
