Tigers Weekend Recap (Sept. 6-8)
Dalhouise Sports Information - September 9, 2013
The soccer teams kicked off their regular seasons at home this weekend hosting Cape Breton and Moncton.
CBU 4 @ DAL 4, UdeM 1 @ DAL 0
The two-time defending AUS champion Tigers women’s soccer team looked to start their season off strong against Cape Breton University on Saturday. Cape Breton jumped to an early lead when Chelsea Currie scored in the sixth minute. Fourth-year Tiger Bianca Jakisa answered with two goals in the 30th and 35th minutes. Another goal by CBU made the game tied at two going into halftime. Cape Breton struck again early in the second half before Dal and CBU traded goals in the 75th and 79th minutes. Going into the final minute CBU was up 4-3, but a goal in the 90th minute by Monica Diab tied the game at four as time ended.
On Sunday the women aimed to grab a victory against the University of Moncton Aigles Bleu. The Tigers allowed an early goal as Santana Wedge snuck the ball through Tiger keeper Rachel Hunt’s fingertips in the fourth minute. This would prove to be the only goal and although dominating play for most of the game, the Tigers fell to UdeM 0-1. Next up for the women is a game at Saint Mary’s on Saturday, September 14 at 1:00pm.
CBU 2 @ DAL 4, UdeM 0 @ DAL 0
The Tigers men’s soccer team looked like they were in mid-season form in their home opener against defending CIS silver-medallist Cape Breton University. CBU got on the board first as Mark Stewart scored in the seventh minute. Dal answered back with four consecutive goals, including two by fourth-year striker Tyler Lewars. Bezick Evraire and Jack Schrembri also added a goal apiece for the Tigers. Mark Stewart added another goal late, but the Tigers held on for a 4-2 victory.
Looking to build on Saturday’s strong start, the Tigers welcomed the University of Moncton Aigles Bleu to Wickwire Field on Sunday. In a gritty defensive battle that saw both teams receive two yellow cards, the score was tied at zero after half. The Tigers pressed late as the rain poured down but couldn’t seem to solve the UdeM keeper Samuel Charron, the Subway Player of the Game for UdeM. The Tigers had multiple corner kicks in added time but could not convert, hitting the goalpost and narrowly missing the net. Time expired after a last minute shot by the Tigers, and the final score was 0-0. Next up for the Tigers is a game against cross-town rival Saint Mary’s on Saturday, September 14 at 2:15pm.
