The Mean Squared Terrors have been proudly flying the Statistics flag in UBC's indoor and outdoor soccer leagues for the past 4 years. After many seasons of heartbreak and disappointment in which the Terrors failed to progress through a play-off round, this year they won the UBC indoor league for the first time.
The line-up of Daniel Dinsdale, David Kepplinger, Joe Watson, Jonathan (Pep) Agyeman, Jonathan Steif, and Matías Salibián-Barrera reached the final on the back of solid defensive strategies and overwhelming offensive plays, achieving a seasonal goal difference of over +40. Although the Terrors looked destined to miss out on the trophy after falling 3-7 behind in the final with only 10 of the 40 minutes of play remaining, the Terrors rallied back to tie the game 7-7 by the time the final whistle blew. Extra time saw David Kepplinger calmly end the sudden death period, with a sniper shot that pierced through Geology’s defensive line and goalie—launching the Terrors to victory.
We would like to thank everyone who has ever played for the Terrors and hope we can defend our title next season, which starts in September 2018! Everyone in the department is welcome to join (students, staff, faculty), no matter your skill level. Go Terrors!
