Sunday:

TRU 2, VIU 0

Saturday's game,

We came out real strong for the first 35 minutes, majority of it being spent in UBCO half, Moira Brown, Kaylee Dodds and Carli Rey all having clear cut scoring chances. We made a defensive error in the 38th minute and their forward took advantage of it, the score was 1-0 at the half. We again played well for the first 20 minutes at start of the second half with out finding the back of the net, UBCO got one in the 65th on a scramble play to make it 2-0, they would add two more late goals as we had to press to get back in the game"

Sunday's game,

Before the game we talked about coming out strong and playing a full 90 minutes today, but we came out sluggish and were punished for it. TRU scored one in the 2nd minute and 24th minute to take a 2-0 lead before we found our legs and started to take the game to TRU, we showed a lot of character after getting down early, when we decided to relax and just play, we really created a lot of problems for TRU while limiting them to couple of half chances. I thought Carli Rey and Kaylee Dodds showed they are two of the more skillful players in this league and you wouldn't know Moira Brown and Zoe Grace are first year players,  looks like Rachel Jones and Jessica Burma might be back next week. Jessica is such a dominating player at the back for us, she's only played in 3 games this year and Rachel is a tenacious player in the middle of the park, a ball winner for us so their return will allow us to move other players back to their regular positions. A huge home and home against Cap next weekend and need all 6 points to stay in the race"
