TORONTO (CIS) – The RSEQ champion Montreal Carabinsdefeated the Western Mustangs 2-1 in the first quarter-final of the2013 CIS women’s soccer championship on Thursday afternoon atthe University of Toronto’s Varsity Centre.

The Carabins have earned a spot in Saturday’s firstchampionship semifinal at 1:30 p.m. and will take on the winner ofthe quarter-final featuring the Canada West champion Alberta Pandasand RSEQ silver medalist Laval Rouge et Or. It marks the fifth timein the past six years that Montreal has advanced to the CIS finalfour, with Montreal still vying for their first national title inprogram history.

The Mustangs, who appear in their first CIS championship in adecade, move to the consolation side of the draw and will take onthe loser of the Alberta-Laval quarter-final, Friday at 1:30 p.m.The 2013 OUA silver medalists are now 1-9-4 in their sevenappearances, with their lone win coming over Saint Mary’s in2002.

“It was a tale of two halves,” said Montreal headcoach Kevin McConell. “We came out way too hesitant in thefirst half and the second half was a different story. For us weneed to come out the way we did in the second half and play a full90 minutes like that.”

After a scoreless first half, third-year Carabins midfielder KimBrûlé opened the scoring in the 50th minute. TheTrois-Rivières, Que., native centred a wide-angled shot,which bounced off the far post and into the net.

Nine minutes later, Montreal’s Constance De Chantal Dumont(Saint-Alexandre, Que.) was taken down in the penalty area andfellow second-year midfielder Laurianne Garrant-Saine (Montreal)made no mistake, sending a booming shot into the bottom left cornerof the net on the penalty shot

The Mustangs cut the deficit to one just six minutes later asthird-year defender Samantha Taylor of London, Ont., kicked in arebound off a Becca Jefferson (Belmont, Ont.) corner kick. Westernwas unable to find the back of the net again and Montreal came awaywith the win.

“I thought we battled hard,” said CIS coach of theyear and Mustangs bench boss Martin Painter. “I don’tthink it was our best game of the year. I think we could haveplayed with a little bit more belief and a little bit moreconfidence. It came down to a couple of unfortunate goals but wefought back to get into the game and we came up a littleshort.”
