Georgia Aldus of Kamloops finished her Canada West women's soccer career with a match-winning penalty on Sunday in Prince George, the goal helping her TRU WolfPack to its first victory of the season on the final day of the campaign.

TRU blanked the UNBC Timberwolves 1-0.

"It was really awesome and a great way to see off the seniors," head coach Mark Pennington told TRU Sports Information. "I don't know if I've ever felt that us as a team or I as a coach have ever worked this hard for one win in a season, because they've worked so hard and I'm just really happy that we can end on a positive and get a reward for all the work that we've put in."

Graduating goalkeeper Danielle Robertson stopped four shots to keep a clean sheet for the Pack, who posted one win, eight losses and three draws this season, the record good for a sixth-place finish in the seven-team West Division.

"Just for the emotional piece, the win was really big to keep the players bought in to the process,” Pennington said. “We are a very young team and will continue to work through spring.

“Now that they've had their first competitive action, they're a bit more battle tested and we can move on. I'm really happy with where we are in terms of moving forward."
