Victory evaded the TRU WolfPack women’s soccer team on a weekend road trip to Saskatchewan.
The WolfPack tied 1-1 with the Regina Cougars on Sunday in the Queen City and fell 2-1 to the Saskatchewan Huskies on Saturday in Saskatoon.
Berea Woldeyes notched her first Canada West goal on Sunday in support of WolfPack goalkeeper Cassandra De Amaral, who stopped five shots against her former team, the Cougars.
Esi Lufo assisted on Woldeyes’ marker. Sierra Kolodziej scored for Regina (1-1-4).
Lufo bulged the old onion bag for TRU (2-4-1) on Friday in support of goalkeeper Aneesa O’Brien, who made four saves in a losing effort.
TRU outshot Saskatchewan 15-7, but goals from Nammi Nguyen and Hailey Weber carried the Huskies (4-2) to victory.
"I said to the team after the game that that's just soccer for you, unfortunately," WolfPack head coach Mark Pennington told TRU Sports Information. "On the day, we couldn't get a bounce and a couple went against us. I thought the girls worked hard, they carried out our game plan to perfection. I couldn't be more proud with how they played, but the soccer gods were just not on our side today.”
The WolfPack will play host to the Lethbridge Pronghorns (1-6) on Friday, Sept. 22, with kickoff slated for 7 p.m. at Hillside.
TRU will play the Calgary Dinos (4-1-2) on Saturday, Sept. 23, a 7:30 p.m. start on Field 2 on McArthur Island.
