On Sunday, the Sea-Hawks carried the tempo of play from the
opening whistle. In the seventh minute of play Heather Williams was
taken down from behind within the eighteen yard box on a play that
drew jeers from the fans in attendance. UNB collected themselves
and the ball and put MUN on their heals as a miscommunication led
to a free kick from within MUN's own 18. The Sea~Hawks capitalized
on UNB's own confusion thanks to two very aggresive defensive stops
by first year mid-fielder Jenna Munden and the second by third year
Lauren Windsor as both players put their bodies onthe line for the
team. The Sea~Hawks seemed to use the early adversity to gather and
compose themselves. Second year keeper Keira Eavis returning from a
season off witha broken hand was in net for the Sea-Hawks and was
constantly directing the defense and encouraging her teammates to
win every ball. First Year Nursing student Janine Battcock played
solid in the two opening games, and early in the second half made a
great feed to Jennifer Burry, a second year Nursing student who
found the back of the net in the 51st minute. Battcock's assist on
this goal was her 2nd of the season as she had set up Heather
William's on the team's lone goal the day before. The Sea-Hawks
played tough and kept their composure as UNB put on a strong attack
in the last 10 minutes of play. Laura Tilley again was outstanding
on the back line and she made some outstanding defensive plays late
in the game to take away UNB's chances near the net.

GUELPH, Ont. - The Guelph Gryphons lost a close 1-0 final
against the Brock Badgers this afternoon (Sept. 11) at the new
Gryphon Soccer Complex in Guelph.
The Gryphons drop to 0-2-1, while the Badgers improve to 1-2-1.
During the first half both teams had multiple shots on net and challenged each other consistently. Guelph’s Victoria Cadman (Burlington, ON) managed to rip around Brock’s defence and had an early chance at net but Brock’s goalie Luciana Di Paolo (Newmarket, ON) deflected it out of range. Melissa Corso (Unionville, ON) carried Guelph’s defence and took on Brock’s attacks without hesitation.
Guelph rookie Courtney Whiteside (Guelph, ON) showed her speed and strength during the second half by out-running Brock defence and having multiple shots on net. Cadman continued to have opportunities in Brock’s end but was unable to follow through with a goal.
The stalemate was finally broken when Brock forward McDonald broke through Gryphon lines after a free shot and fired the ball straight past Guelph goal-keep Alexandra Keddy (Mississauga, ON) and into the net. The Gryphons fought hard for the rest of the match trying to tie up the score but they couldn’t capture a goal. The game finished 1-0 for the Badgers.
The Gryphons next play the York Lions on September 17th at York at 1pm.

LENNOXVILLE, Que. – A four-goal outburst in the last ten minutes of the first half keyed the No. 3-ranked Montreal Carabins to a shutout, 6-0, over the Bishop's Gaiters in university women's soccer at Coulter Field today. Véronique Maranda and Eva Thouvenot each scored a pair of goals late in the first half, as the Carabins turned a 1-0 edge into a 5-0 halftime lead.
Maranda's brace came via the set piece, as the fifth-year midfielder scored directly off a pair of free kicks, in the 37th and 43rd minutes. Meanwhile, Thouvenot found the net from just outside the box in the 40th minute and scored on a tap-in in the fourth minute of stoppage time in the first half. Goals by Emilie Chamard (14') and Audrey Lagarde (53') rounded out the scoring. Maranda finished with three points, as she also picked up an assist.
Molly Bucholtz (Peterborough, Ont.) made four saves for the Gaiters, before she left the game in the 29th minute with an injury. Rookie goalkeeper Marie-Pierre Harvey (Quebec City, Que.) came on in relief – her first action as a Gaiter – and made 11 saves in 61 minutes. For Montreal, Sarah Therrien picked up the shutout.
Sophomore Taylor Wade (Wolfville, N.S.) was named the Gaiters' MVP, as she played a strong game in midfield.
The Gaiters (0-2) wind up their three-game homestand on Friday, Sept. 16, as they host the Laval Rouge et Or (1-1). Kickoff at Coulter Field is set for 6 p.m.

TORONTO - Eilish McConville scored one goal and added one assist
as the Varsity Blues women’s soccer team extended their win
streak to three with a 2-0 victory over the Laurentian Lady Vees on
Sunday, September 11 at Varsity Centre.
The Blues defensive corps of Jackie Miklovich, Nav Deol and Diane Esteireiro were relentless in shutting down Laurentian leading scorer Lisa Watson and the Lady Vees, handing them their first loss of the season.
Third-year striker Jessica Fantozzi of Richmond Hill, Ont., tallied the game-winner in the 50th minute, after McConville beat two defenders and fed her a beautiful pass with only the goalkeeper to beat.
McConville was taken down in the box in the 74th minute and stepped up for her second penalty kick of the weekend. The fifth-year striker made no mistake, beating Lady Vees goalkeeper Michelle Phillip with a booming shot into the bottom left corner of the net.
Blues goalkeeper Sara Petrucci of Bolton, Ont., made nine saves in the shut out win.
The Varsity Blues return to action next Sunday, September 18 when they play the Ryerson Rams at Esther Shiner Stadium.

TORONTO - Sophomore Erica Huculak scored what turned out to be
the game-winner in the 85th minute as the Ryerson Rams women's
soccer team recorded its first victory of the season with a 2-1
triumph over the Nipissing Lakers on Sunday afternoon.
Associate Coach Ramin Mohammadi was pleased with the women's performance one day after losing to the Laurentian Lady Vees.
"We changed our formation today and were a little more aggressive," said Mohammadi. "We created many good chances. It was clear the girls wanted the three points and we got them."
The Rams (1-2-1) were on top of the Lakers throughout most of the contest, and the first scoring chance occurred early on when Kendra Welham (Oakville, Ont.) stole the ball at the top of the Nipissing box, and sailed a shot over the crossbar.
Andrea Raso then began a give-and-go play that ended with the Etobicoke, Ont. native getting a shot away that forced Lakers keeper Kelley Van Boxmeer into a nice diving stop.
The ensuing corner kick was headed by Sarah Slattery past Van Boxmeer (Collingwood, Ont.) but was cleared off the goal-line by a Nipissing defender.
The Rams continued to pressure, as Shannon Cosgrove got a break down the left side, chipped the ball over Van Boxmeer to Christina Lovatsis (Markham, Ont.), who couldn't find the open net from a narrow angle in the 33rd minute.
Raso finally broke the scoreless drought in the 42nd minute. The fifth-year veteran chased down a long pass, holding off the Lakers defender and calmly placing the ball in the low right corner to give Ryerson their first lead of the regular season.
Cosgrove nearly doubled the lead moments later, tipping the ball off a low cross from the right that was well saved by Van Boxmeer.
In the second half, Cosgrove had another chance on a thru ball from Raso in the 82nd minute, but it was thwarted again by the outstretched hands of Van Boxmeer.
Huculak's insurance marker in the 85th minute came off a nice cross from Lovatsis that was deflected into the low left corner.
Natasha Struthers (Sharbot Lake, Ont.) managed to sneak her cross of a corner kick in between Persson-Thomas and the near goal post in injury time, but the full-time whistle sounded just moments later to end the contest.
The Rams will host the Toronto Varsity Blues next Sunday, September 18 at Esther Shiner Stadium. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m.

|Calgary||1||No. 4 Alberta||4||Final|
EDMONTON - Senior striker Heather Lund scored early and often for the No.4 University of Alberta Pandas, earning a hat trick over the Calgary Dinos who lost by a 4-1 score, Sunday afternoon at Foote Field.
The Red Deer native now has four goals after the first two games of the season, equating almost half of the nine goals she scored in all of last year. Third-year defender Shalla Kadima added a single to round out the scoring for Alberta while sophomore striker Kayla Michaels picked up a pair of assists.
Senior defender Caitlin Milne notched the lone tally for the visitors.
The home team opened the scoring immediately when, after a Dinos offside call, Pandas netminder Kelti Biggs lofted a long bomb to Lund, who broke in alone on Calgary’s Kristen Barton before putting the strike home on the short side in the second minute.
The Dinos replied five minutes later when sophomore forward Sarah Benson found Milne at the top of the 18-yard box, with the Calgary native lobbing it just over the reach of an outstretched Biggs to knot the score at one.
Lund regained the Alberta lead shortly after in the 13th minute, however, when she took a short pass in tight from Michaels, driving home her milestone 20th conference goal in Panda silks.
Another Michaels pass found its way to Lund in the 65th minute so the former Red Deer College student could complete the hat trick.
Kadima, on a hot streak of her own, scored her second goal in as many games by, incidentally, converting an Elise Emmott corner-kick as she did on Saturday afternoon. The insurance goal in the 69th minute helped force Barton out of the goal with third-year ‘keeper Tara Ellis taking over in the final 20 minutes for the Dinos.
The Pandas will head west next weekend to take on the Victoria Vikes and Fraser Valley Cascades, while Calgary takes on a home-and-home series with the Lethbridge Pronghorns.
