The University of Winnipeg’s men soccer team has been stripped of two wins and a draw after it was revealed that the Wesmen fielded an ineligible player in those matches.

A Sept. 7 2-2 draw with the University of Saskatchewan and two victories over the Mount Royal Sept. 15 and 16 have been wiped out. Winnipeg’s Canada West record has been adjusted from 2-3-1 to 0-6-0.

Because the use of the player was found to be the fault of administration, not the player himself, Canada West is keeping his identity confidential.

According to Canada West:

“A Wesmen student-athlete participated in two exhibition games and four regular season games while ineligible in accordance with CIS regulation 40.10.5.5.1 and is required to sit out the first regular season game of conference play following a one game suspension assessed at the conclusion of the 2011-12 season. The suspension occurred under a different jurisdiction, prior to Winnipeg’s participation in CIS men’s soccer.

“CIS has confirmed that the violation was unintentional.”
