Gaiters Women’s Soc­cer Vic­to­ri­ous

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

TheBishop’s Gaiters women’s soc­cer team had an event­ful week­end that saw them play twice in three days against the Con­cor­dia Stingers and the UQAM Ci­tadins in RSEQ Univer­sity ac­tion. Bishop’s won both games, beat­ing the Stingers 2-1 and the Ci­tadins 1-0 re­spec­tively.

At Con­cor­dia, Bishop’s took the lead in the 17th minute through a well-worked cor­ner, fin­ished off with a vol­ley by Kim Fontes. The Gaiters dou­bled their lead in the 34th minute, again from a cor­ner, this time scored by Ce­leste Cava­liere. In the sec­ond half, Bishop’s de­fended their lead well thanks in large part to a num­ber of fine break­away saves by goal­keeper Molly Bu­choltz.

On Sun­day, Bishop’s hosted the UQAM Ci­tadins in their home opener at Coul­ter Field. A back-and-forth first half saw both teams share scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, but the Gaiters were the first to cap­i­tal­ize off a free-kick in the 42nd minute. Emma Fin­gler whipped the set-piece into the box where it bounced around, be­fore Cava­liere found Ni­cole Wierzbicki who fin­ished nicely from close range.

The Gaiters travel to Mon­treal on Fri­day, Septem­ber 13, to play the No.6 Mon­treal Cara­bins start­ing at 6:30 p.m. They re­turn home to host the Laval Rouge et Or on Sun­day, Septem­ber 15, at Coul­ter Field. Game time is sched­uled for 1 p.m.
