Sports in Brief: Women’s Soccer shine; Football looks to recover

Women shock Aigles Bleus

The Mount Allison Women’s Soccer Mounties shocked the Université de Moncton Aigles Bleus on Friday October 4. The Mounties entertained the Aigles Bleus, who, with six wins, have won more games than anyone else in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference in 2013. Amanda Volcko broke the draw in the seventy-eighth minute of the match on a shot just outside the eighteen-yard box. A very strong performance from Mounties goalkeeper Robin Bessemer sealed the Women’s first victory of the season. A spectator’s account of the game was that “it was the best the Women had played in four or five years.” This victory proves that the Women can keep up to any team in the AUS, and should be able to contend going forward into next year.
