Mori and Dinos in tough

Luke Mori and the University of Calgary Dinos are one point out of the final playoff position in the Canada West soccer standings.

Luke Mori and the University of Calgary Dinos are one point out of the final playoff position in the Canada West soccer standings after splitting a pair of weekend games.

The Nelson Youth Soccer and L.V. Rogers High School grad is in his first year with the varsity club.

On Saturday the Dinos lost 2-0 to their provincial rival University of Alberta Golden Bears at their home pitch in Calgary. But on Sunday the Dinos regrouped and scored a pivotal 1-0 victory over the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

After the weekend action the Dinos sit in fifth place in the powerhouse division with the University of British Columbia, the University of Victoria, Alberta and Trinity Western University ahead of them. With a 5-4-1 season record, the Dinos are one point out of fourth and two points out of third.

Mori and Dinos now travel to the coast this weekend to tangle with Victoria and the University of Fraser Valley. With only four games left, the Dinos will need to come up with some victories as only the top four teams make the Canada West playoffs that take place the first weekend of November.
