Burnaby, B.C. - The Simon Fraser University Clan women's soccer team won 2-0 over Evergreen. The victory improves SFU to 10-5-0 on the year, while the Geoducks end their year with a 5-11-1 season record.
"It's always good to get a win, but we didn't capitalize on enough of our opportunities," said SFU head coach Shelley Howieson following the game. "Evergreen battled, and they played tough throughout the game, and their goalie did a great job."
SFU dominated the opening 15 minutes, out shooting the Geoducks 8-to-0, including three shots on goal and two balls off the crossbar. The Clan out shot Evergreen 15-to-0 in the first half, however the score remained knotted at 0-0 at halftime.
Simon Fraser however capitalized early in the second, when Aly Benes (Surrey, B.C.) struck a ball from 30-yards out, bending it towards net. Geoduck keeper Bohrer (Tacoma, WA) was able to put a glove on it, however it wasn't enough to keep it out of the goal and SFU took the 1-0 lead in the 45th minute.
Senior Marissa Antoniazzi (North Vancouver, B.C.) scored the clinching goal in the 67th minute, capitalizing on a misplayed ball by Bohrer, and striking it to the back right corner of the net.
Evergreen didn't register a shot until the 85th minute and were out shot 26-to-1 in total shots, including 12-to-1 in shots on goal.
Bohrer played admirably in her first ever start for Evergreen, making ten saves in the loss. Usual starting Geoduck keeper, Sonya Daisley-Harrison, was unable to make the trip to Canada. It was a quiet night for SFU keeper Cassie Newbrook (New Westminster, B.C.), who faced only one shot in the shutout victory for the Clan.
The game marked the final regular season game for Evergreen.
