Picaroons Reds cruise to 3-1 win over Codiac
Premiere soccer league action continues Sunday at Scotiabank Park South

  The Fredericton Picaroons Reds scored two unanswered goals in the second half en route to a 3-1 win over Codi-ac First Touch on Friday night in Mc-Cain New Brunswick Premiere Soccer League action.    Oliver Jones, Ken Morrison and Marco Reidel scored for the P-Reds, who improve to 1-0 on the season.    Daniel Mallet replied for First Touch, who fell to 0-1.    “There were a lot of good signs out there,” said P-Reds coach Dave Rouse. “It’s our first game of the year and we did get ourselves in trouble with some bad decisions at times and turnover, but that kind of happens when you’re getting your rhythm together.”    The first 10 minutes of the game started off a little slow as both teams were trying to feel each other out.    After that, it turned into some exciting soccer action.    The Fredericton Picaroons Reds opened the scoring first.    In the 17th minute, Jones placed a shot over the head of First Touch goalkeeper Samuel Charron.    But the lead was short-lived.    Less than two minutes later, First Touch tied the game after Mallet found an opening along the wing, danced in alone uncontested and beat P-Reds goalkeeper Adam Grant in the five-hole.    “The biggest thing for us now is our fitness,”said First Touch head coach Patrick Gautreau in French.“Some guys can play for 30, 35, 40 or 45 minutes but we need guys that can play 90 minutes. It’s something for us to work on, but there’s no need to press the panic button”    Both teams had good scoring chances later in the first half, including three headers that nearly crossed the line, but both teams went into the half with the score 1-1.    The P-Reds came out in the second half with a little more jump and things paid off in the 56th minute.    Eric Karosan sent the ball across the field, 44 yards out and then Marco Reidel tried to finish, but Charron made a nice save to keep the ball out.    Unfortunately for the keeper, he gave up a big rebound to Morrison, who tipped the ball into the net and gave the P-Reds the 2-1 lead.    Riedel added the P-Reds third goal in the 81st minute.    “It was a close game and I thought they probably should have had a penalty and I thought we missed some chance that we could of done a better job of finishing. They controlled segments of play, they are a strong team and I think it’s going to be a fun season,” Rouse said.    The P-Reds are back in action at home on Sunday when they face P.E.I. FC at 1 p.m. at Scotiabank Park South.    Their next home game will be yet again against First Touch. The two teams will square off on Friday, June 12, at 7 p.m. at the BMO Centre.

NBPSL Announce Academic All-Stars

Posted & categorized League News.

1. Codiac FT
Name: Martial Ouattara
Club: Codiac First Touch
University: Universite de Moncton
Program: Maitrise en Administration
Year: 2 of 2
Martial has been working with the Dieppe Soccer Club this summer to offer quality programs for their players. He is a kind person who is very passionate about development of our young generations. Mr. Ouattara is always willing to offer a helping hand when it comes to organizing and implementing Club events and programs within the Codiac and Dieppe Soccer Clubs.
On the pitch, he is a fierce competitor with an impeccable work ethic. He is always the first to arrive at practice and the last to leave. Martial has proven to be an integral part of the Tom Cormier Co-operators First Touch squad this summer. There is no doubt in my mind that Martial Ouattara is an excellent candidate for the NBPSL Academic All-Stars Scholarship.

2. FDSA Wanderers
Name: Roy Mugume
Club: FDSA Wanderers
University: UNB
Program: Engineering
Year: 4 of 4

Roy Mugume enters his fourth year of Engineering at UNB after his third season with the FDSA Wanderers. Mugume took over the starting Left Back position on this summer’s squad and grew into a key on- and off-field leader for the Wanderers. His keen sense of play and smart ball skills continue to make him a valuable and relied upon member of Dubsnation. Mugume spent his spare time this summer coaching (alongside Wanderers teammate, David Jamael) a U12 boys recreational soccer team with FDSA, leading the team to an end of season Jamboree championship. Mugume is also an active member of the UNB Right to Play club as well as the Youth Matters network, where he provides youth engagement leadership to younger students in Fredericton and around New Brunswick. He is well deserving of a McCain Academic All-Star selection.

3. Fundy United Men
Name: Jacob Dunnett
Club: Fundy United
University: Houghton College Islanders, NY
Year: 2 of 4
Jacob was not only a stand-out GK on a very young team but also played out for his team when necessary. A great athlete, GK and developing star at the NBPSL level, Jacob also devoted a lot of time to developing the next generation of Fundy GK’s by working weekly with GK from the ages of 7 to 13 at both the grassroots level and the competitive levels. His love of the sport and his great leadership and demeanor inspired a lot of young GK’s to pursue the position.

4. Fred Reds Men
Name: Alex Haiart
Club: Fredericton Picaroons Reds
University: UNB
Program: BA
Year: 4 of 4
Alex enters his 4th year as member of the UNB Varsity Reds as one of two team captains. This past summer was his third year with the Picaroons Reds where he anchored the back line to the Picaroons third NBPSL Championship in four years. Alex gives back to the soccer community by coaching with the FDSA and UNB’s soccer programs year round. Alex is a dedicated student athlete who works hard on and off the field.

Name: Harmi Singh
Club: P.E.I. FC
University: UPEI
Program: Mathematics
Year: 3 of 4
Harmi moved from Italy to Kensington, PE in 2010. He played for Charlottetown-Winsloe U18 before joining PEIFC in 2012, but he maintains a close relationship with the youth programs in the small community he still calls home. He coached a Kensington U14 first division team in 2013 and continues to volunteer with the club in 2014.

1. Chaleur FC
Name: Vickie Savoie
Club: Chaleur FC
University: U de Moncton
Program: Biology
Vickie is dedicated to the sport of soccer. She was working in Moncton but barely missed a match all season. She is a leader on the field for our team and for the U de M on defense. She is studying Biology right now at U de M. She has participated in 4 nationals in her career and she is a role model for every youth player in our region.

2. Crazy Babes FC
Name: Frédérique Bossé
Club: Crazy Babes FC
University: McGill
Program: Law
Year: 2 of 4
Frédérique has definitely been a pillar to our team during the 2014 season. She showed a great deal of courage and commitment to the team. No matter how rough times were at moments, she would keep her head up and show up at every time she could. She also worked very hard when she stepped on the field, whether it was at a practice or at a game. Frédérique volunteered for a team organized community event in Saint-Quentin and also helped a younger goalkeeper on her own time, which proves her passion for soccer. Her constant desire to better herself and the team makes Frédérique Bossé our selection for the McCain Academic All Star.

3. Fundy United Women
Name: Lacey Purdy
Club: Fundy United
University: UNB
Year: 4 of 4
Lacey was a leader and a starter for the Fundy United Women. After spending all day and early evening working with players at the grassroots, developmental and competitive levels, Lacey would come to our training and games with a true desire to be successful. A very intense athlete, Lacey learned success comes in smaller steps and improvement followed. Her work with the soccer players in Fundy and in particular the MIllidgeville area of Saint John has made her a community favourite with players and parents.

4. Fred Reds Women
Name: Kayla Painter
Club: Picaroons Reds
University: UNB
Year: 4 of 4
Kayla will enter her 4th season with the UNB Varsity Reds this fall after wrapping up her 2nd season with the Fredericton Picaroons Reds. The two time Jubilee Trophy Champion, Painter captained and led the P-Reds in scoring this season as one of the dominant players in the NBPSL W. Kayla has a great ability to take a game over with her individual skill, vision and finishing ability. She can score goals in multiple ways which makes her dangerous from anywhere on the field. In addition to her finishing, she is equally dangerous at disturbing the ball from the midfield to set up her teammates. Kayla is a player you always want on your side and her ability to influence the outcome is a great asset.
