(WINDSOR, ON) – Matching the men’s soccer team, the women Lancers split their matches over the weekend. However, where the men lost to Guelph and defeated Brock, the women were opposite in their accomplishments.

Friday evening, the Lancers squeaked out a 1-nil victory over the visiting Gryphons at Alumni field. Third-year forward Becca Fuerth hit the back of the net with a bullet, for her 5th goal of the campaign, in the 60th minute. The tally proved to be the winner as the Lancers hung on over the final half hour of play for their 5th win of the season.

In Saturday’s contest against the Badgers, the women went down 1-nil on a penalty shot awarded to Alana Wong. The shot narrowly passed by the out-stretched reach of keeper Krystin Lawrence, in the 80th minute.

Kristen Melo drew the Lancers even just two minutes later when she headed a corner kick from Giulia Barile past the Badger keeper. However, with under two minutes remaining on the clock Brock was awarded a second penalty which proved costly for Windsor.

The Lancers head to Waterloo this coming weekend for games against Laurier and Waterloo before returning October 25 to meet Western in the final game of the regular season.
