Brittany Derkacz named Week 23 Athlete of the Week

March 21, 2017

derkaczThe Red River College women’s futsal team won the 2017 Copa de la Paz Championship last weekend in a 2-0 shutout against Canadian Mennonite University. Before posting the shut out in Sunday’s Final, RRC’s keeper, Brittany Derkacz, gave up just a single goal to Brandon University in the first game of the tournament’s semifinal round. And it was the court vision of Derkacz on the offensive end that ended up being the deciding factor for Red River in the semis.

With the game tied 1-1 on Saturday against BU, Derkacz had the ball in her hands with just under 11 minutes left in the match. The game had been tightly contested up to that point and unlike some of the other semifinal matchups that would take place later that day, scoring in this game was not easy to come by.

Derkacz spotted teammate, Julia Friesen, standing about ten feet in front of BU’s goal so she hooked an overhand pass with the perfect speed and weight to deflect off Friesen’s head and past BU’s keeper. The header put RRC up 2-1 and would be the deciding goal to move RRC into the next round, where Derkacz would later post the shutout and be named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

Cesar Carvalho named Week 23 MCAC Athlete of the Week

March 21, 2017

CesarCarvalhoAfter scoring a hat-trick and being named Player of the Game in a seesaw semifinal game against BU last weekend, Cesar Carvalho and the Red River College Rebels got to raise the Men’s Futsal championship trophy on Sunday.

In Sunday’s Final, Carvalo found the scoresheet once in his Rebel’s 6-4 victory over Providence University College. The 6’2 forward from Sao Bernardo do Campo, Brazil, played an excellent 2017 Copa de la Paz tournament and was a major factor in both of Red River’s wins, setting up numerous goals and playing with much needed passion.

In the beginning of Sunday’s Final against the host PUC Pilots, Red River College found themselves trailing less than thirty seconds after the first whistle. The home crowd was ecstatic after a booming shot put their team ahead so early, but it was Carvalho who weathered the storm and set up teammate Alex Castro with a beautiful feed to tie the game shortly after. It was one of several assists that Carvalho had in the win and it was an integral part of Red River overcoming early momentum.

Carvalho got his lone goal of the game in the second half when he tied the game 3-3. That would also prove to be a vital point in the game as RRC never gave a lead back and went on to win 6-4, crowned the 2017 Men’s Futsal champions.

Men’s Futsal win MCAC Championship

March 12, 2017

Men’s 2017 Copa de la Paz Final: Red River College defeats Providence University College 6-4

The men’s game started in fantastic fashion when the host, Providence University College, started with the ball and got about three touches on it before Herby Magny sent a rocket into the top of RRC’s net. The crowd erupted and before the game was even thirty seconds old, the underdog PUC was up 1-0.

Shortly after the quick start to the scoring, PUC keeper, Jay Thiellman didn’t have a chance when RRC’s Cesar Carvalho took a corner kick and set up a streaking Alex Castro right in front of the net at the 22 minute mark, tying the game at 1 goal apiece.

Rebels Women’s Futsal Capture MCAC Crown

March 12, 2017

Women’s 2017 Copa de la Paz Final: Red River College defeats Canadian Mennonite University 2-0

Scoring chances were few and far between in the opening minutes of the women’s final. Red River College keeper, Brittany Derkacz, was the first goalie to face any legitimate scoring chances and she proved to be in fine form early, turning everything away with cool confidence.

After play in RRC’s end quickly switched to a partial break for RRC’s Nadine Reimer, CMU keeper, Lydia Balsille, stepped up and kept the game scoreless by turning a tough shot from Reimer aside.

Rebels Men’s Futsal Advance to MCAC Final

March 12, 2017

Futsal Semifinals Recap – #3 Red River College defeats #2 Brandon University 6-5

The first Men’s semifinal game of the day began with a very irregular scenario.

After a shot on net was made to the right of BU keeper Dan Harrison’s, the ball ended up in the back of the net. BU contended that the ball had made its way in through a large hole in the netting on the side of the goal, so play was stopped while the referees discussed the matter and repaired the netting. After the pause in play the goal was ruled good and was awarded to RRC’s Alex Castro.
