After McGill and Montréal roster issues, the Concordia Stingers men's soccer team found themselves—unexpectedly—in the RSEQ playoffs. The Stingers only had a few days to prepare for Friday night's match in Quebec City against the Laval Rouge et Or.
The McGill Redmen and the Montreal Carabins both admitted to using an ineligible player throughout the entire 2012 season. As a result, both teams have forfeited all matches in which the ineligible player took part in.
“We lost focus,” lamented defender Enos Osei, as the Stingers were handed a heavy loss at the hands of the Laval Rouge et Or. The Sunday afternoon match at Concordia Stadium officially brings the season to a close.
The Stingers got their second victory of the season when they played host to the UQÁM Citadins on Sunday afternoon. After a scoreless first half, Concordia striker Andrew Bryan found the back of the net in the 73rd minute to earn his side an important three points.
