The NAIT Ooks defeated the Medicine Hat Rattlers 1-0 in the ACAC women’s soccer championship game held this afternoon at JP Bowl. This victory caps off a fantastic season of conference play by the Ooks, who placed first in the North division during the regular season and finished with a perfect 12-0 record.
This game was scoreless late in the contest until NAIT’s forward Kelsey Langille scored with five minutes to play. The snow began to fall shortly after kickoff and by the end of the game the field was completely covered making it difficult for both teams to mount any sort of attack.
After the game, NAIT’s Laura Kautz was named Tournament MVP while fellow Ooks Kayla Michaels and Kelsey Mitchell received all-star selections. Taylor Cardinal and Kaity Letwiniuk were the all-stars from Medicine Hat College.
Both teams will move on to the national championships hosted by the Rattlers in Medicine Hat, AB Nov. 5th-8th.
