The University of the Fraser Valley men's soccer team had a weekend to remember, for all the right reasons.
Not only did the Cascades take down the number-one team in the nation, with a 1-0 victory over the UBC Thunderbirds on Sunday, but they also put a halt to a unwelcome streak in the process.
It was the first time in UFV school history that the Cascades beat the T'Birds-a streak that spanned 14 games.
It was one of two streaks to fall on Sunday, as the Thunderbirds' loss was their first in 27 games. The last UBC regular season loss in CIS or Canada West play came Nov. 6, 2011.
"The guys followed the game plan and did everything Tom (Lowdnes) and I asked of them," said Cascades head coach Alan Errington.
Connor MacMillan of Chilliwack scored the lone goal of the game, with only three minutes to play.
"A complete team victory, I cannot be more proud of the team than I am right now," said Errington.
Sunday's victory came on the heels of an opening-season, 2-1 loss to Trinity Western University on Friday. Ethan Claibourne-Collins of Chilliwack scored the lone Cascades goal in the loss.
The Cascades' 1-1-0 record after Week 1 leaves them in a four-way tie atop the CIS Pacific Division, along with TRU, UBC and Victoria. The Cascades travel to Winnipeg for a game Sept. 12 against the 0-2-1 (Canada West) University of Winnipeg Wesmen.
