TORONTO (CIS) – Second-year forward LéaChastenay-Joseph of Donnacona, Que., scored twice in the last sevenminutes of regulation time to lead the Laval Rouge et Or to a 2-0victory over the Western Mustangs in consolation semi-final actionon Day 2 of the 2013 CIS women’s soccer championship at theUniversity of Toronto’s Varsity Centre, Friday afternoon.
Laval advances to the consolation final for the second time inthe past four years, after claiming the fifth-place spot in the2010 tournament at UPEI. Sunday at 11 a.m., they will face thewinner of today’s second consolation semifinal, featuring theOUA champions Laurier Golden Hawks and host Toronto VarsityBlues.
In the only previous meeting between the two teams at the CIStournament, in 2002, Laval had defeated Western 1-0 in extra timefor a program-best bronze-medal finish.
“We knew it was going to be hard game,” said Lavalassistant coach Marie-Pier Bilodeau. “We didn’t play anemotional game in the first half, I think that was our problem.There was no emotion or life and we told them that they had to puttheir heart in it and I think that’s what we were able to doin the second half.”
Chastenay-Joseph scored the eventual game-winner in the 83rdminute when she received a through ball from Mélissande Guyof Quebec City and sent a wide-angled shot past Western goalkeeperTori Edgar of Oakville, Ont., and into the net.
She added her second of the game in the 90th minute, receiving apass from goalkeeper Joëlle Morasse, also a Quebec Citynative, and sliding the ball into the open mesh.
The two teams traded chances 20 minutes earlier.Chastenay-Joseph came down the right side of the field and sent theball just wide of the far post in the 66th minute. Less than aminute later Western’s Tianna Deluzio of Sault Ste. Marie,Ont., had a clear shot on net and sent it over the cross bar. TheMustangs had a couple more shots in the ensuing minutes but to noavail.
The OUA silver medalist Mustangs cap off their 2013 campaignwith a respectable 13-3-5 record through the regular season andplayoffs.
“It was a very successful season,” saidWestern’s Martin Patiner, the 2013 CIS coach of the year.“We came out today and competed well. We conceded a couple ofunfortunate goals late in the game but through the 90 minutes wedid a lot of positive things. I think we had a much betterperformance than yesterday and the result didn’t go ourway.
