| August 14, 2013

College soccer games are also just around the corner. . The UMPI men and women and NMCC Men and UMFK women will all hit the fields in the next few days. The UMFK men are already hitting the field three times a day

Bill Ashby is working on getting the team in shape. ” We have about 26 guys in the camp right now and are going three times a day. 7 in the morning 1:30 in the afternoon and we get together at six each night and play matches. We have been going three or four days now and the troops are looking good.”

It’s an interesting time of year with the nine freshman meeting the veterans for the first time

” It’s a transition time for us. The new players coming in and meeting the old players. We use this time to figure out what style we are going to be. What formation we are going to play. We are looking forward to getting back to the national tournament and hopefully go a bit deeper.”

The team will have a very busy preseason before opening the regular season in August 31st.They play four exhibition games in four days beginning on Monday

” We have a fairly big squad. We have four exhibition matches in a row. Two with Carleton University who finished fourth in Canada last year and Ahuntsic out of Montreal. They will be four tough matches for us and will be a great opportunity for the young guys and the returning guys to prove themselves.”
