CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI – Humber won its seventh CCAA men's soccer national title – fifth since 2012 – with a 1-0 victory over Ahuntsic at the Terry Fox SportsPlex Saturday afternoon.
The victory gives Humber an unprecedented 50th CCAA national title, becoming the first institution to reach the mark. It also makes Humber men's soccer the most decorated program in CCAA soccer history, becoming the first team to win seven national titles.
Humber (13-1-2) had much of the run of play, outshooting the Indiens, finding a few scoring chances in the second half. Off a corner kick, a Hoilett back-heel shot was saved by the Ahuntsic keeper, followed by another brilliant save off of a Federico Leal strike from outside the 18-yard box. The Humber defence was spot-on, giving the Indiens next to nothing on the way to Karman Singh earning his fourth career CCAA postseason clean sheet.
Baldassarre's pass found a sprinting Riley Ferrazzo near the goal line, drilling the shot in the right side of the net.
Ferrazzo, a freshman and 2018 Central Division Defensive Player of the Year, recorded his fourth goal of the year and second game-winner of his collegiate career.
Under the guidance of head coach Michael Aquino, Humber has captured four national titles and is 12-0 all-time at the championship tournament.
- Humber improves to 7-1 all-time in the championship game and has now won 16 consecutive matches.
- Karman Singh, Jaineil Hoilett, Bradley Fenton, Marc Medeiros, and Luca Baldassarre have won three national championships.
- Winning its seventh national championship, Humber moved past Capilano for the most national titles in CCAA men's soccer history.
