AUS Final: Capers defeat Panthers 1-0 to claim sixth AUS women's soccer title
WOLFVILLE, N.S. - The third place Cape Breton Capers won three games in three days at the 2010 Subway AUS women's soccer championship, including Sunday's 1-0 triumph over the previously undefeated CIS No. 7 ranked UPEI Panthers to claim their fifth AUS championship banner in the past six years and the sixth title in the history of the program.
Cape Breton's lone goal in the final came in the 54th minute when rookie striker Devon Pierre (Albert Bridge, NS) finished off an Erika Lannon cross. First year CBU keeper Tiffany O'Donnell (Cole Harbour, NS) made four saves to register the shutout, her third of the championship
The Capers are now 10-0-2 in their last 12 games and haven't lost a game since a 1-0 setback to Acadia back on September 19th.
Both Cape Breton and UPEI will advance to next week's CIS women's soccer championship being hosted by the Panthers in Charlottetown, PE.
The Panthers fired eight shots at the CBU goal, but landed only four on net while the Capers had three of their four shot attempts find the net.
Cape Breton fourth year defender Katherine Mills (Sydney, NS) was named the Adidas Most Valuable Player of the tournament while teammate Kyla Kavanaugh (Edmonton, AB), also a defender, was named the Subway Player of the Game.
UPEI second year midfielder Sara Stewart (Charlottetown, PE) grabbed Subway Player of the Game honours for the Panthers.
