Metro Vancouver……The KPU Eagles women’s soccer lost their second road game of the weekend today 3-1 to the Langara College Falcons. The Eagles record now sits at 1-2-0 and they will head into their next match at home on Saturday, September 13.
An own goal by Langara put KPU on the board at the 10-minute mark, but KPU was unable to offensively produce throughout the match. At 30 minutes Falcons forward Kelsa Lefebvre, Port Coquitlam, BC, beat Eagles goalkeeper Simran Meelu, Abbotsford, BC, to even the score. Langara’s Amelia Brown, West Vancouver, BC broke the tie at 40 minutes and Chelsea Brown, West Vancouver, BC scored the third and final Falcons goal late in the second half.
Eagles Head Coach Julie King noted strong performances by first-year midfielders Lexie (Alexandria) Gillette, Chilliwack, BC, and Pamela Scowby, Coquitlam, BC, as well as acknowledged the efforts by Meelu, who played all 90 minutes in net, and Jessica Anderegg, third year defender, Surrey, BC.
“We lost two games this weekend due to mistakes,” said Coach King, “We’ve got a lot on our plate for practice this week so we continue to look forward towards the bigger picture and tidy up our game.”
The next home match for the KPU Eagles women’s soccer team is Saturday, September 13 when they take on the Quest University Kermodes at 12:00pm at Newton Athletic Park in Surrey.
