One streak continues, another ends for UFV soccer squads

Women's squad extends win streak to seven games, while men lose after four straight wins.

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s soccer squad remained unstoppable last weekend, recording their sixth and seventh wins in a row at Abbotsford secondary.

The Cascades beat the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack 1-0 Friday. The Cascades opened the scoring nine minutes into the game when Monika Levarsky took a neat pass from Sunayna Samra and put a low shot past the TRU keeper.

The following day, the Cascades extended their winning streak with a dominant display against the University of British Columbia-Okanagan Heat. The Cascades beat the Heat 3-0, thanks to three goals in 10 minutes just after halftime.

The Cascades men’s soccer team saw its four-game winning streak come to an end Saturday with a 1-0 defeat to the UBCO Heat.

UBCO striker Enzo Paal got the game’s only goal just six minutes into play. It held up as the winner after UFV’s Colton O’Neill missed a penalty in the 72nd minute that would have tied the game.

The two teams now sit with identical 4-4 records, and are tied for third place in Canada West’s Pacific Division.

A day earlier, the Cascades rode three set-pieces to a 3-0 victory over the still-winless WolfPack. Both men’s and women’s teams return to the pitch Oct. 10 at UBC.
