EDMONTON – Showing an unmatched work rate and elite field presence, Michael Ho was a thorn in the side of MacEwan’s opponents on their home-opening weekend.
The 5-foot-5 defender was a major reason the Griffins notched their first win of the campaign on Saturday – a 2-1 win over the University of Calgary Dinos. He consistently read the play quicker than his opponents and refused to allow their attempts at quick counters through midfield.
In Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Mount Royal University, Ho was again a major factor on the defensive end and was relied on heavily when a red card to teammate Zibusiso Moyo put the Griffins down a man for the final 56 minutes.
Ho and the Griffins (1-2-1) head out on the road this weekend, visiting UBC Okanagan (4-1-1) on Friday (8:30 p.m. MT) and Thompson Rivers University (1-1-2) on Saturday (8:30 p.m. MT, both games on Canada West TV presented by Co-op).
