Pronghorns find a lit­tle fin­ish

Lethbridge Herald - - HERALD SPORTS -

Amatto, whose goals were her first two of the sea­son. “Ev­ery­thing we were do­ing in the game, at­tack­ing their two back-D, we did ex­actly what we’ve been work­ing on and it went per­fectly.”

Go­ing back the other way, the Pronghorns also earned the goose egg in their home opener.

“I thought to­day was a great team ef­fort,” said Trinh. “I know 5-0 is an im­pres­sive score, but we got a clean sheet as well, so that’s im­por­tant. That says that our iden­tity has al­ways been play­ing de­fence first. There’s more to come.”

Pronghorns goal­tender Mi­caela Stone made two saves in the win.

“She was great,” said Trinh. “Mic is do­ing what she should be do­ing. It’s her fifth year with us and that’s a vet­eran pres­ence back there.”

The Pronghorns home week­end con­tin­ues to­day at noon at the U of L Sta­dium as the Trin­ity West­ern Spar­tans (1-2) pay a visit.

The Spar­tans lost 3-0 to the Calgary Di­nos Satur­day in Calgary.

“They’re a peren­nial na­tional champ and it’s an­other great test for us. I love th­ese big games. I have the ut­most re­spect for their club and school. It’s al­ways fun against Graham’s (Roxburgh, Spar­tans’ head coach) team. You know what? I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing my friend and I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing how my team stacks up against his team.” Amatto wel­comed that chal­lenge. “I’m so ex­cited,” she said. “It’s re­ally go­ing to be a good game.”

On the men’s side, the Pronghorns con­tinue their West Coast road swing.

Af­ter a 5-1 loss to the Trin­ity West­ern Univer­sity Spar­tans Fri­day night in Lan­g­ley, the Horns (1-4-2) are in Kamloops to take on the Thomp­son Rivers Univer­sity Wolf­Pack.

The LCI Rams foot­ball team re­mained un­de­feated and en­joyed a stats night in the process.
