OOKS COME FROM BEHIND TO DEFEAT HUSKIES 3-1

SHERWOOD Park, Alta. - The NAIT Ooks men's soccer defeated the Keyano Huskies 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at the Strathcona Athletic Park. 

The Huskies got on the board first when Clession Anklam beat Zach Black in the 12th minute to take a 1-0 lead. The Ooks responded quickly when Cristian Lima found the back of the net in the 19th minute to tie the game. Abraham Jones gave NAIT a 2-1 lead as he scored minutes before halftime. In the second half, Isaac Ayolade would be the lone goal scorer as he put the Ooks up 3-1 in the 70th minute. 3-1 would be the final score as NAIT swept the weekend series over the Huskies. 

"Both games were a battle. Keyano is a well-organized team and proved to be tough to break down. Given the tough conditions in our first taste of winter, I'm happy how the weekend went." said Ooks head coach Charles O'Toole.
