It turned out to be a long weekend for members of Steers Insurance Corner Brook United FC.

The local Challenge Cup senior men’s provincial soccer league club is still searching for its first win of the season after dropping a pair of games to the St. Lawrence Laurentians on Saturday and Sunday.

In Sunday’s match, Corner Brook were downed 3-0 thanks to goals by Patrick Slaney, Brent Hennebury and Jon Grant.

Grant opened the scoring in the 20th minute, before Slaney made it 2-0 in the 26th.

Hennebury buried the game’s final goal in the 80th minute.

Saturday’s game saw a similar result, with Corner Brook ended up on the wrong side of a 4-0 score.

Grant, Hennebury, Sean Drew and Stefan Slaney provided the goals in this one.

Again, it was Grant getting on the board first with a goal just four minutes into the contest.

The rest of the goals were second-half markers, starting with Slaney’s in the 65th, followed by Hennbury in the 67th and Drew in the 75th.

Corner Brook fell to 0-6 on the year.
