MUN women at CIS Nationals

The Memorial Seahawks women’s soccer team made their first appearance at the CIS National Championships (in Laval, Quebec). They played Fraser Valley University in the quarter finals and battled hard only to lose 2-1 in extra time. Fraser Valley opened the scoring through a somewhat fortunate goal in the second half as a clearance rebounded off a FV attacker into the goal. Some great play by keeper Hannah Noseworthy kept the score to 1-0 and Hanna Rivkin equalised for Memorial with 9 minutes left. With the score tied at 1 after 90 minutes the teams went into extra time, and Fraser Valley scored the winner after 12 more minutes. Memorial tried hard for the equalizer but couldn’t beat FV keeper Kayla Klim (CIS match report). MUN then played Western, going down 2-0 (match report).
Striker Jesse Noseworthy was named a second team All-Canadian during the All-Canadian Banquet held at the Museum of Civilization in Quebec City. The team also received the tournament  R.W. Pugh Fair Play Award.
