The Thompson Rivers University men's soccer team couldn't pull off another playoff upset this year, falling to the Mount Royal Cougars 2-1 this afternoon to bring their season to a close.

The Cougars lept out to a 1-0 lead on a goal by Dane Domic. But the TRU was able to tie things right before the half on a goal by Daniel Sagno.

In the second half, the field tilted in Mount Royal's favour, as the Cougars fired eight shots the WolfPack's way. 

Justin Anderson-Louch broke open the tie in the 58th minute and Mount Royal held on from there to win.

Jackson Gardner made four saves in the loss for TRU.

The WolfPack were able to upset the University of Alberta 3-0 in the playoffs last year, but couldn't repeat that effort this time around.
