Huskies set school single season points record


October 20, 2013, Saskatoon (ISN) – With a 3-0 shutout victory over the visiting UNBC Timberwolves in the final regular season match in Saskatoon’s Griffiths Stadium in PotashCorp Park, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies set a single season points record.

Saskatchewan finished the season 8-2-2 recording 26 points. It is the most tallied by any team in the 29-year history of the program at the University of Saskatchewan. The eight wins also matched a school-best set in 2012.

With the fifth-place finish, the Huskies will travel to Trinity Western University for a quarter-final match. UNBC finishes the season 1-8-2 and out of the postseason.

Saskatchewan quickly opened the scoring in the second minute when Daniela Fuenzalida sprung Jenelle Zapski. Zapski was able to beat a sprawled UNBC keeper Jordan Hall and slide the ball into the open net.

The Huskies tallied twice more in the second half. Fuenzalida scored the second goal in the 53rd minute when Jennifer Miller’s free kick landed at her feet. The four time Canada West all-star slipped the ball into the top right corner over Hall. Fellow fifth-year Nicholle Morrison added the insurance goal for the Huskies in the 59th minute.

Hall made 10 saves in the match for the Timberwolves, while Cara Santaga stopped four. Saskatchewan outshot UNBC 29-6 in the match.

The Saskatchewan-Trinity Western quarter-final match is set for 6 p.m. B.C. time Saturday.
