Exhibition: Laurentian Lady Vees sting Concordia 3-0
HAMILTON, Ont. - The Lady Vees soccer team closed out their preseason schedule with a 3-0 defeat over the Concordia Stingers on Sunday, August 29.
Looking to bounce back after a tough 2-0 loss to McMaster which saw the Lady Vees suffer from injury, Laurentian was able to come out with much resilience and determination to escape Hamilton with a record of 1-1.
The Lady Vees would find scoring from midfielder Dayna Corelli (Sudbury, On) who scored a beautiful goal off a free kick, Lisa Watson (New Market, On.) who placed the ball right in the top corner after a great run down the wing and goaltender Tanya Marshall (Ottawa) would chip in with the last goal as she found herself in an offensive role due to the teams short bench. Jaimee Lafraniere (Sudbury, On.), Michelle Philp (Etobicoke, On.) and Marshall would all get credit for the shutout as they shared the goal tending responsibilities for this game
"The girl's fought hard today and I was happy with their effort," said head coach Rob Gallo. "The rookies played very well and are looking good. We are looking forward to this week of practice as we prepare for Ryerson and Toronto next weekend."
The Lady Vees will open regular season play next weekend at Laurentian when they kick off against the Ryerson Rams on Saturday, September 4 before taking to the field on Sunday, September 5 to battle it out against the University of Toronto Varsity Blues. Both games for the Lady Vees begin at 12 p.m
Laurentian University's Department of Athletics is home to 12 varsity sports teams. The Voyageurs and Lady Vees decorated history of pride and tradition includes 61 provincial championships as well as 9 national championships in 49 years of competition.
