Women lose heartbreaker; Garland six strokes off lead.
Women’s Mounties lose heartbreaker
The woman earned a 0-0 draw against St. FX on Saturday, and looked to continue their strong play against MUN on Sunday. The opening half saw no scoring, thanks to some key saves by keeper Robin Bessemer. MUN was able to get on the board early in the second, scoring in the fifty-fifth minute, but like they’ve proven before, the women rebounded fast and Megan Entwistle tied it up only eight minutes later.
Unfortunately for the Mounties, MUN was able to capitalize on a corner kick in the ninetieth minute that deflected in off a Mountie player in a mad scramble. Entwistle said it was a “disappointing result and we fell apart at the end and started playing their style of soccer. For the most part we played well offensively and had good counter attacks. Cassie Suche had a really strong game.”
The women will look for their first win of the season next week as they take on the Université de Moncton on the road on Saturday and Cape Breton University at home on Sunday.
