The University of Alberta Golden Bears beat the UFV Cascades 4-3 in men’s soccer action in Edmonton on Friday.

On Saturday,  the University of Saskatchewan Huskies beat them 2-1, in Saskatoon. So, the Cascades end the 2011 Canada West regular season with a 1-11-2 record for seventh in the conference.

UFV’s lone goal Saturday was scored by Kobe Byrne of Abbotsford.

Friday the Cascades played a great first half, scoring three goals in one half for the first time this season, and leading by two.

In the second half, Alberta shut the door on UFV’s offence as they scored three unanswered goals to stay in the hunt for the Canada West title.

The Cascades goals were scored by Jordan Tipton and Trent Mayer of Abbotsford, and Sasa Plavsic of Coquitlam.

In women’s soccer, the UVic Vikes defeated UFV 2-1, ending the season for Abbotsford.

Veteran captain Megan Webster, of Abbotsford, scored her team-leading fifth goal of the campaign in her final CIS match.

“It’s been a frustrating season; however, if we can learn from our experiences this season we will be better for it in the future,” said head coach Rob Giesbrecht.
