CMU Suffers First Loss Of Season

Two first-half goals from Annamarie Kaethler and Ruth Shantz with the wind at their backs was enough for Providence to collect their first MCAC women’s soccer win of the season over CMU on Sunday afternoon.

Entering the contest 2-0, and coming off a 6-1 goal explosion over Red River on Saturday, the Blazers found it difficult to penetrate the Providence defenders early on, and ended up without a first-half goal at the sound of the referee’s whistle.

With 45-minutes remaining and playing with the wind, it appeared that the undefeated Blazers would find enough time and opportunities to take points from this away match, but it was the Freemen who would prove that their goal would be a tough nut to crack.

Twelve minutes into the restart, Kaethler and the Freemen would break for a third goal, putting the visitors firmly on the back foot. The efforts of midfielders Deanna Zantingh, Kristina Janzen and Mallory Short who continued to pressure the Providence goal, were unable to direct the ball past goalkeeper Kristi Larson to spoil her clean sheet.

Now 2-1 in conference play, CMU travels to Thunder Bay, Ontario for friendly matches with Lakehand University and Confederation College on Saturday and Sunday.
