Dinos stomp pesky Huskies 2–1

By Annie Randhawa, September 25 2014 —

The Dinos women’s soccer team remains undefeated after a 2–1 victory over the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on Sunday, Sept. 21.

The victory puts the Dinos in first place in the Canada West Prairie division. The Dinos are now 4–0–2 for the season, while the Huskies record fell to 3–1–2.

After scoring three-straight goals in Saturday’s competition against the Huskies, Sunday’s game kicked off to a great start. The Dinos scored their first goal in the ninth minute. Second-year forward Maddie Lee picked up her first goal of the day by beating the Huskies’ Cara Santaga on the right side after receiving a pass from Dominica Wronski.

“It’s pretty exciting. Saskatchewan is a good-quality team. As a side result we were on home turf, but I am so happy for the girls,” said Dinos head coach Troye Flannery.

The Dinos defence showed great chemistry and communication in the first half, which made it difficult for the Huskies to break through. The Dinos held a 1–0 lead at the end of the first half.

The Huskies came out in the second half with new momentum. Midfielder Erica Hindmarsh put one high in the net, tying the game in the 58th minute. The Dinos held their composure and continued to play strong defence as the Huskies went on the attack.

Dinos forward Jordan Smith put the heat on Huskies keeper Santaga, and it looked like the Dinos would once again pull ahead with a series of shots fired on net.

Flannery put Lee back into the game with just over 10 minutes to play, shifting momentum back to the Dinos.

The second half was full of chances for both teams. In the 78th minute Lee scored her second goal, shooting it high from outside the box.

The Huskies continued to push their offence to break the Dinos’ lead. In the last 15 minutes of the game, Hindmarsh tried her luck to get past Dinos keeper Samathan Chang-Foidl, but failed.

Even though the Huskies didn’t score in the second half, there was plenty of worry and anticipation by the fans. After Lee’s second goal, the Huskies came out with fire in their hearts as they tried to smash through the Dinos impeccable defence.

By the final whistle, the Dinos had outshot the Huskies 16–7. Huskies goalkeeper Santaga made nine saves during the afternoon.

“Every week we like to start new,” Flannery said. “It’s a fresh start to the week, and we keep going and strive to be better with each day that comes along.”

The Dinos will continue their season Sept. 27–28 against the University of Regina Cougars.
