The tie, the Gaiters’ first since a 25-25 stale­mate against Con­cor­dia on Sept. 7, 2003, gives Bishop’s (0-1-1) their first points of the sea­son, putting them along into third place in the provin­cial cir­cuit.

WOMEN’S SOC­CER: Laval 2, Bishop’s 0 A pair of early goals gave the Laval Rouge et Or a 2-0 vic­tory over the Bishop’s Gaiters in Que­bec univer­sity soc­cer ac­tion Satur­day night, Sept. 10th, at Coul­ter Field. The Rouge et Or scored twice in the game’s first ten min­utes, on Mélis­sande Guy’s fourth-minute goal and Mona-Lee Pinkos’ marker six min­utes later.

The Gaiters fared bet­ter af­ter the night­mare start, hold­ing the Rouge et Or to only five shots on goal in the game, and main­tain­ing much more pos­ses­sion in the sec­ond half. Gaiters’ Head Coach Phil Ribaux was par­tic­u­larly happy with the play of mid­field­ers Patricia Murray (Syd­ney, N.S.) and Tay­lor Wade (Wolfville, N.S.), along with de­fender Ali­son Verville (Whitby, Ont.), who was named the Gaiters’ player of the game.

For Laval, Guy fin­ished with one goal and an as­sist, while Marwa Chebbi had the other Laval as­sist. Marie-Ève Des­noy­ers made two saves while pick­ing up the shutout for the vis­i­tors, while rookie goal­keeper Marie-Pierre Har­vey (Que­bec City) made three saves for the Gaiters in a los­ing cause.

The Gaiters are off this Sun­day, and re­turn to ac­tion tonight, Wed­nes­day Sept. 22 as they visit the UQAM Ci­tadins. Kick­off at the Cen­tre Sportif Bois-deBou­longe in Laval, Que., is set for 9 p.m.
