ConU prepares for the new season

Concordia hosted the second annual Concordia Challenge this weekend, allowing both the men’s and women’s soccer teams to test the 2005 editions of their teams.

While neither team won a game, there doesn’t appear to be any concern, especially on the women’s side where they have yet to field their full starting lineup.

There are a lot of positives, but there are still some things we have to work out.”

The team lost some key defensive players but have a core group returning this season, including Melanie Poirier, their leading scorer from the last two seasons and goalkeeper Diane Ouimet.

The team also hopes to have prodictive seasons from second-year players Tania Pascuzzo and Julie Pawlusiak and co-captain Skye Moseley.

There are also three first year players who are expected to make an impact. Defender Rachel Steben, a three-year player with the Ottawa Fury, and forward/midfielder St
