1-0 Victory for Women's Soccer

August 26th, 2012

VIU -1, TSS -0

VIU Mariners took on a very skillful Total Soccer Systems team from Richmond Thursday. Early in the match  VIU had a number of great chances but couldn't find the back of the net. Rebecca Williams on a nice pass from Jillian Kelly scored the only goal of the match in the 30th minute.

Second half started with fresh legs for the Mariners.
VIU had numerous chances..... Kelly' s close range was stopped by the keeper, Jess Weninger on a breakaway shot at the TSS goalie, Caity Genereaux with rocket from 25 yards out just went over the bar, Sarah Meredith from 30 yards out hit the crossbar.
VIU completely dominated the match and made it tough for the opposition to get out of their own end, the visitors had a good ten minutes through the second half, forcing VIU goalie Shelby Walker to make two outstanding saves. Carli Rey had one last chance for VIU from 6 yards out but the goalie made a diving save.

"We looked a little tired today which is understandable since we just came off 6 hard training sessions in 3 days.
VIU has only given up  2 goals in 6 games!!  The coaching staff is really happy with the teams progress and are looking forwards to Sunday's game against Warner Pacific"
