Blazers Rise In Women’s Soccer Win

IMG_8166Amy Carlson’s goal in the 34th minute powered the Women’s Soccer team to a 1-0 home win over the Red River Rebels on Saturday afternoon at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex. The victory was the second consecutive win for the Blazers who brought their record to 2-0-1, taking 6 of a possible 9 points from their opening three matches, and currently sit in second place in the conference.

Carlson’s (pictured below) first-half volley was certainly of importance, but recognition for the win can also be credited to central defenders Breanne Heinrichs, Kyra Neufeld and first-year goalkeeper Simone Turner-Cummer, who managed to extinguish the MCAC’s top goal-scorer, Leah Single, who led the conference with 4 goals entering the Saturday’s contest.

0T8A0719-XLIn three meetings with the Rebels in 2012, CMU managed only three draws – two scoreless and a 1-1 tie. The “Route 90 Rivals” met on a fourth occasion in the conference semi-finals where the Rebels advanced on a single goal to the 2012 Conference Championships.

In Sunday’s lone MCAC women’s match, Red River again fell by a score of 1-0, this time to Providence, setting the table for a glorious mid-season derby October 5th in Otterburne, when the MCAC’s top two women’s teams, CMU and the newly renamed “Pilots”, will meet for the final time this regular season.

The Blazers depart for Thunder Bay on Friday where they will compete in the SportTop Invitational at Chapples Park September 28th and 29th against Lakehead University and Confederation College.
