Historical season for Eagles soccer teams

It's been a truly unusual soccer season. Unseasonably low temperatures and unexpected snow has meant that the Eagles soccer teams have had to play home games on artificial turf elsewhere in the city. In fact, this past weekend was the first time this season the Men's team was able to play a home game here at King's.

But unique weather hasn't been the only thing making the 2018 season historical. Superior on-field performances from both teams have led both teams, for the first time ever, to the ACAC Conference Championships!

The men's soccer team is currently ranked third going into provincials while the women are ranked second. This is the women's first appearance in the post-season in program history!

The women's soccer team also ranked nationally for the first time this week in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association.
