Huskies stop Dinos winning streak


SASKATOON – With a 1-1 tie with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies Saturday afternoon on Field 7 in Saskatoon’s PotashCorp, the No. 3 ranked University of Calgary Dinos winning streak was stalled.


Calgary had won its first six matches to start the Canada West women’s soccer season and had only allowed two goals. With the tie, Calgary moves to 6-0-1, while Saskatchewan is now 3-3-1.


The Huskies opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when rookie Maya Grabruch sent a cross ball in front of the net. Leesa Eggum headed the ball into the top corner.


Calgary tied the match in the 37th minute with a cross play of their own. Maddie Lee sent the ball into Mollee Ramsay for her 10th goal of the season.


Saskatchewan had the best chance to break the tie in the second half.  In the dying seconds of the match, Huskie Jordan Zemlak crossed a ball in front of the net. Striker Julie Labach was able to get a head on it but it sailed just over the crossbar.


Kyleigh Vause finished the match with two saves for the Huskies, while Sophia Traxler made five saves for the Dinos. Saskatchewan outshot the Dinos 13-8.


Saskatchewan remains at home to host the Lethbridge Pronghorns Sunday, while Calgary travels to Regina to meet the Cougars.
