Knights ex­tends un­beaten streak to five games

The Welland Tribune - - SPORTS -

Alexis He­bert, Ni­a­gara Col­lege’s top fe­male ath­lete for the week end­ing Sun­day, made a strong case for re­ceiv­ing the hon­our this week as well. On Wed­nes­day the rookie goal­keeper made a game-sav­ing stop to pre­serve a score­less tie with the vis­it­ing Fan­shawe Fal­cons in women’s soc­cer. He­bert’s fourth shutout in a row ex­tended the Knights’ un­beaten string to five games and im­proved the team’s record to 3-3-2 with two games re­main­ing in the reg­u­lar sea­son. She was as­sisted by a back line of Ash­ley Bruzzese, Shan­non Hal­l­i­day, Lau­ren Frasca and Genny Fick. “The back four were out­stand­ing, they lim­ited the Fal­cons to chances only from a dis­tance for most of the game,” Ni­a­gara head coach Rob Lalama said. “Fan­shawe (7-0-1) showed why they’re un­de­feated. “They are a very good team. I’m proud of how we com­peted to­day.” The Knights host the St. Clair Saints, 5-2-1; in a 2 p.m. kick­off Satur­day at Youngs Sport­splex on River Road in Wel­land. — Bernd Franke, Post­media News
