The Storyline
No. 2 Humber men's soccer (4-0, 1st Central) will host the George Brown Huskies (2-0-3, 2nd Central) Wednesday evening at the Ontario Soccer Centre. The match will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network at 8 p.m. with Matt Hammel and Kyle Dalton on the call.

Last Time Out

Scouting George Brown

  • The Huskies enter the match as one of three unbeaten teams in the OCAA Central Division.
  • Filipe Vilela is currently leading the conference in scoring, recording nine goals in five matches. Vilela is fresh off a hat trick in George Brown's 5-1 win over Cambrian on Sunday. In two matches last season, the Hawks were able to keep Vilela off the scoresheet.
  • Jordan Sodhi has started in net for five matches, allowing five goals, making 27 saves and a .844 save percentage.
  • The Huskies are 2-10-2 all-time at Humber, with their previous win coming during the 1996 season.

Last Meeting
First-half tallies from Tomasz Balicki and Luca Baldassarre helped Humber defeat George Brown at the Ontario Soccer Centre on Oct. 11, 2017. Nick Frenati recorded the clean sheet, making three saves for his fourth win of the season.

Defensive Mindset
Humber has allowed a league-low seven shots on net this season but has surrendered three goals – matching its total from 2017.
