Saturday Chill Settles Over Timberwolves
Prince George, B.C. – The University of Alberta Pandas scored twice in the first half and once in the final 45 minutes to shut out the UNBC Timberwolves 3-0 in Canada West women’s soccer on a chilly Saturday afternoon.
With reserves, coaches and fans bundled up on the sidelines at North Cariboo Senior Soccer League field, Alberta notched the first goal of the game just 2:12 in as Aly Parth scored on a free kick from 25 yards out. The visitors took a 2-0 lead at 19:08 as Sydney Daines tallied unassisted. And Daines collected the assist when Karissa McNutt completed the scoring in the 77th minute of the match.
Cassie Bazzarelli notched the shutout saving four shots on goal by the Timberwolves, two of them from the boot of forward Madeline Doucette. UNBC keeper Lianna Toopitsin had a busy afternoon, stopping 9 of the Pandas’ 12 shots on goal.
The victory gives the Albertans a record of 5-2-2 while the Timberwolves are still looking to get into the win column after nine starts.
The teams meet again today at noon.
