Laurier Downs Waterloo in OUA Playoff
Laurier: 3 OUA Playoffs - Waterloo: 1
WATERLOO – Jennifer Fewster-Yan (Scarborough, Ont.) scored two goals, including the game winner, as the Wilfrid Laurier women’s soccer team defeated their cross town rival University of Waterloo Warriors 3-1 at Alumni Field. The Golden Hawks will now advance to the OUA quarter-finals against McMaster.

Laurier’s Ali McKee (Bracebridge, Ont.) opened the scoring for the Golden Hawks early in the first half.  The goal opened up the game as Waterloo was playing defensively. The Warriors got their chance when Tara Chadwick (Stratford, Ont.) got the ball down the sideline and went to the net. She scored just midway through the first half to tie the game.  Laurier continued to carry the play and spend most of the time inside the Warriors zone. The match was tied until midway through the second when Jen Fewster-Yan headed a cross past Catherine Vanderburgh (Waterloo, Ont.) and into the back of the net.  Fewster-Yan scored another goal later on in the second to seal the victory for the Hawks.

“It was a dominating performance and a deserving win,“ said head coach BARRY MACLEAN. “Jen did very well for us.”

The Golden Hawks outshot the visiting Warriors ten to three with Vanderburgh making eight saves in the loss and Mal Woeller (Kinburn, Ont.) saving two for the win.

Laurier will now travel to Ron Joyce Stadium on Saturday, October 25 to take on the McMaster Marauders at 1:15 p.m.
