Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

TheBishop’s Gaiters women’s soc­cer team played two home games this week host­ing the McGill Martlets on Fri­day, Sept. 20 and the No. 8 Sher­brooke Vert et Or on Mon­day, Sept. 23 in RSEQ Univer­sity ac­tion. Bishop’s lost both games 6-0.

On Fri­day af­ter­noon, the Gaiters hosted the Martlets as part of the 2013 home­com­ing cel­e­bra­tions at Bishop’s Univer­sity. McGill scored in the 18th minute, be­fore dou­bling their lead four min­utes later. Bishop’s then took the game to their op­po­nents but were un­able to cap­i­tal­ize and headed into the half down 2-0. The Gaiters found them­selves down two more goals in the first ten min­utes af­ter half­time. Bishop’s goal­keeper Molly Bu­choltz (Peter­bor­ough, Ont.) made many key saves as the game pro­gressed, but was un­able to sti­fle the McGill at­tack, let­ting in an­other two goals be­fore the ref­eree blew the fi­nal whis­tle with the Martlets on top 6-0.

Mon­day night saw the Gaiters host the No. 8 Sher­brooke Vert et Or un­der the lights at Coul­ter Field. Bu­choltz again made mul­ti­ple saves in the first half; none big­ger than a div­ing kick save in the 43rd minute off of a penalty kick. How­ever, Sher­brooke scored twice in the half to take a 2-0 lead into the in­ter­mis­sion, a harsh score line for the Gaiters who did well push­ing for­ward. In the sec­ond half Sher­brooke pulled away. They found the back of the net four times to win 6-0. RSEQ lead­ing scorer MarieEve Jac­ques (Sher­brooke, Que.) led the way for the Vert et Or with four goals.

“The score was not in­dica- tive of how well we played to­day,” said Gaiters head coach Phil Ribaux af­ter Mon­day’s game. “We played well, but they’ve got a few su­per­stars who we marked, how­ever they still found ways to score.”

The Gaiters play at Coul­ter Field this Fri­day, Sept. 27 as they host the UQTR Pa­tri­otes at 6 p.m. On Sun­day, Sept. 29, they will play the Laval Rouge et Or, in Que­bec City, kick off is slated for 4 p.m.
