The home opener game featured great support from students and staff, including Vice-President, Dr. Petra Hauf who helped kick-off the match.

Even though the weather conditions were dreary and chilly, the crowd’s support was immense through-out the game with posters and cheering. 

A minute into the game saw great action from the Seawolves goalie and captain, Jillian Smith (#1) who had her first of many saves during the game. The Seawolves attempted their first goal around 13 minutes into the first half and was unsuccessful.

However, they found redemption shortly after with the only goal of the entire game, scored by the other captain of the women’s team, Karlee Duval (#6). While the assist for the goal went to #16, Jocephine Splitgerber. 

The rest of the first half saw consistent battle between the two teams with no further goals being made by either team. 

After halftime, the game continued similarly and the defence of the UNBSJ Seawolves remained very strong, ensuring no goals were to be made from the STU Tommies.
