The last one month of games was much better comparatively for the CMUQ Men’s football team. After losing the points against Northwestern University, CMUQ gained winning points in the second game when their opponents UCL failed to show up. The third game however ended in a loss to Georgetown University which came as a shock to many. CMUQ had always been better and defeated GU in almost matches prior to this one. However, looks like GU has come back with a new and improved team, thanks to some great freshmen players on the squad. In the following week CMUQ managed to pull off a convincing 3-1 victory against old rivals, ABP.
The season is about to wrap up and CMUQ is still in the hunt for the title. However, unlike the last two years, it does not look like an easy win for CMUQ this season. They will need to battle it out in the coming few weeks and hope that TAMUQ underperform in a couple of their matches in order to get the title.
