North Vancouver, BC…..The KPU Eagles women’s soccer team came to a scoreless tie against the Capilano University Blues today in North Vancouver, BC, in the second of this season’s best of three contest. The Eagles’ record is now 3-3-4 in the 2014-2015 PACWEST CCAA regular season, and are fighting for a post-season berth to Provincials hosted by Quest University, October 24-26th.
It was another defensive game for the Eagles with KPU showing strength in the backline and in goal. Eagles Surrey, BC-born defenders third-year Jessica Anderegg, third-year Amanda Dodds, and first-year Pamela Scowby made significant contributions. KPU’s first-year goalkeeper Simran Meelu, Abbotsford, BC earned her second straight shut-out in her sixth start for KPU.
“It wasn’t the outcome we wanted today. We had opportunities to make things happen and unfortunately it didn’t pan out,” said Eagles head coach Julie King, “We need to work on our scoring and fight to get the ball in the net.”
Today’s tie puts the Eagles’ season-series record with the Blues at 1-0-1. Tomorrow the Blues travel to KPU’s home turf, Newton Athletic Park, in Surrey, BC for a 12:00pm kick-off. This will be the final and deciding game of the series, of which the outcome will help shape the playoff picture for the Eagles.
