A pair of goals by Josée Bélanger led the No. 8-ranked Sher­brooke Vert & Or to a 2-0 vic­tory over the Bishop’s Gaiters in CIS women’s soc­cer ac­tion last Fri­day night at Coul­ter Field. Bélanger found the net in the 11th and 26th min­utes, as the Vert & Or (8-1-2) took a quick 2-0 lead.

The in­jury-de­pleted Gaiters (0-9-2), play­ing with only 14 play­ers dressed, held the Vert & Or to nine shots on goal, while tak­ing two of their own. The home side’s best chance to break the shutout came in sec­ond-half stop­page time, when Sarah Baird (Ne­pean, Ont.) fired a shot from the top of the box that Sher­brooke goal­keeper Elena Wald­is­puehl had some trou­ble han­dling.

Wald­is­puehl made two saves to earn the shutout, while Becky Yates (Halifax, N.S.) made seven saves in net for the Gaiters. Bélanger earned player of the game hon­ours for Sher­brooke, while de­fender Dale Adam­son (Cam­bridge, Ont.) won sim­i­lar hon­ours for Bishop’s.
