Laurier: 3 Western: 1
The Laurier women’s soccer team has been on a role and they continued their winning streak against Western, the number 7th ranked team in the country on Saturday. With poor conditions the women went out and fought for the whole 90 minutes and came out on top convincingly by a score of 3-1. Kelly Conboy
, Lidia Knez, and Mercedes Bernacki
all contributed goals but it was the character of the team that the coaching staff is pleased with. “It was a solid performance today. The girls are playing well together and the character of the team is excellent” explained head coach BARRY MACLEAN
. Despite still having five people out with injuries, there were key players who have returned to the lineup. With all the players who are returning to the lineup it has given the coaching staff a headache, as they have been desperately trying to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together. Now it seems the team is gelling quite nicely, and they are showing why as they have gone undefeated over their last three games. Finally the team is beginning to play up to their capabilities and one can only hope it can continue in to the playoffs.
