Done Deal! Women’s Soccer Nets Five On Defending Champs

Super rookie Esther Schwarzkopf continued to grow her goal tally on Tuesday night and it couldn't have come at a bigger time as Women's Soccer grounded the Providence Pilots to the tune of 5-1 at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex.

Schwarzkopf struck early as her team carried most of the possession and chances through the first 45 minutes, building a 2-0 lead before the break with the first-year and former Manitoba provincial rural high school Most Valuable Player scoring both Blazer goals.

The Pilots took a goal back early in the second half but Schwarzkopf was at it again minutes later, providing CMU with a cushion on 70 minutes to make it 3-1. Fellow first-years Cheryl Malamion and Naomi Klassen would complete the Blazers scoring in the final 10 minutes of the match to lead CMU to their largest offensive output in recent memory, perhaps in the history of the women's soccer program, 5-1.

The next challenge for the emerging Blazers is the Thunderhawk Cup in Thunder Bay this weekend. CMU has participated in the three team mini-tournament involving the Blazers, Confederation College and Lakehead University for the past four years. Though the CMU men have captured the trophy the past two seasons, the women have never won a match in Thunder Bay and last season captured their first point in the tournament with a 1-1 draw against Lakehead.
