Golden Bears soccer saw their record blemished for the first time on Friday, as Connor James kept a clean sheet on the way to a 0-0 draw against the UBC Thunderbirds.
Travelling to Victoria on Saturday to play the Vikes, Alberta got back to its winning ways, pushing to a 3-2 win. First-year sensation Ajeej Sarkaria continued to find the twine, firing two goals past the Vikes keeper. Armaan Bhinder chipped in another tally.
