The UNBC men's soccer squad will have their hands full on Friday the 13 with the Mount Royal University (MRU) Cougars paying a visit to Masich Place Stadium. 

MRU has yet to lose a game this year holding a record of 5-0-0, good enough for first in Canada West Prairie Division standings. 

UNBC, on the other hand, hasn't been as lucky as they sport a 2-3-1 record, which puts them fifth in the Canada West Pacific Division standings.

“MRU is a very good team," UNBC midfielder Owen Stewart says in a release."They have some good pieces that can cause any team threats, and they are going to look to continue their fantastic start. I think, if we focus on our strengths and how we’ve won this year, we’ll be just. It will be a very exciting game this weekend.”

Mount Royal has wins against Calgary (5-0), Saskatchewan (2-0), Lethbridge (3-1), Alberta (2-0), and MacEwan (2-1). 

UNBC's two wins on the season game against UBC Okanagan (2-1) and Victoria (2-0). 

“I think preparation is the same, whether it’s one or two games, home or away," Stewart adds. "We are going to be focusing on what we can improve on, and just making sure we’re ready to give it everything for that one game.”

Stewart played his 50th game for UNBC last weekend against Victoria.
