Two numbers describe the Golden Bears football and soccer seasons thus far. These numbers are 7.66 and 5, and though they basically seem identical, they tell completely different stories about the teams’ seasons. Following three games in 2012, the Bears soccer team is averaging 5 goals per game. The football squad? Yes, 7.66 points per game.
To be fair, the soccer team has feasted on lowly Canada West squads, Mount Royal and the University of Northern British Columbia. Both of these opponents are new to the league. Points tallies in the soccer games have been 7-0, 4-0 and 4-0. The football team has faced-off against three top 10 CIS teams: Saskatchewan, Calgary and Regina. The scores? 31-0, 65-6 and 31-17.
