The UNBSJ women’s soccer team was faced with a hold up at the beginning of their game against the St. Thomas University (STU) Tommies on Sunday, Oct. 14. The third official for the match did not show up for the game, which resulted in a back up referee being called in at the last minute. The mix-up with the officials caused a thirty minute delay in the game.

A common trend for the Seawolves’ soccer games this season has been the constant cold and rainy weather; Sunday was no exception. The players from both teams looked down right miserable as they took the field socked and shivering from their warm up.

The first half of the match resulted in no goals for the Seawolves or the Tommies, but UNBSJ had one shot attempt and two shots on goal, with four corner kicks and two direct free kicks—a great start for the home team.

In the second half of the game, STU made some frantic attempts for a goal but they were thwarted repeatedly by the Seawolves’ goal keeper, Rebecca Snow. Snow’s skill on net have greatly improved this season, making her an excellent keeper.

The game’s only goal was scored by UNBSJ player number 12, Jennifer Bergeron, midway through the second half.

Snow continued to make great saves as the Tommies stepped up their game; however their effort was not enough to defeat the Seawolves.

The final score was 1-0 for UNBSJ, rectifying their loss to STU the day before.
