After a year’s interruption, the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) soccer season returned in 2021 with strength and vitality, with Les Rouges teams earning a series of wins, awards and selections in late October.

The women’s soccer team won the provincial championship held in Brandon October 30 and 31, and are now gearing up for their first performance at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) national championships which will take place in Toronto from November 10 to 13, 2021. Les Rouges will face Les Dynamiques from Sainte-Foy, Quebec, in the quarterfinals.

Mylène Chabot received the MCAC Championship Most Valuable Player award for scoring both goals of the final game, played on Sunday, October 31 against Brandon University (BU).

At the same time, Katie Moniot—fourth-year midfielder and team captain—was unanimously chosen as the 2021 women’s soccer MVP, while her teammates Sara Boissoneault, Cassie Nazeravich and Tara Boulanger were MCAC all-star selections.

“Katie is a dedicated, talented and hard-working leader and her game has consistently been at an extremely high level, which isn’t always easy with the condensed seasons players are faced with in the MCAC,” says Les Rouges head coach, Justin Légaré. “I’m very proud of her many accomplishments and the way she’s grown as a player. Katie is proof that hard work pays off.” Katie Moniot is receiving this prestigious award for the second year in a row.

And that’s not all! Women’s soccer coach Justin Légaré took home the Coach of the Year award!

Meanwhile in men’s soccer, Les Rouges’ season ended in the semi-final against the Brandon University Bobcats, who were in second place going into the championships. Les Rouges were in third place. 

Les Rouges’ men’s team is wraps up their season with a 6-0-6 record and a defeat in the playoffs after an intense, fiercely-fought game against BU. Brandon’s Player of the Game was Sam Wetstein, with Alexandre Kouassi-Lenoir taking the honours for USB.
