Hawks move on to semi-finals


On Saturday, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks’ women’s soccer squared off against the Brock Badgers in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Quarter-finals. The Badgers were the only team in the division that the Hawks failed to beat in the regular season.

This time, the Badgers couldn’t deny the Hawks their victory as Ali McKee and Heather Malizia continued their torrid scoring pace from late in the season, each contributing a goal in the 2-1 win.

The Hawks stymied the Badgers’ offence throughout the game with steady defence from Tania Pedron, Sadie Anderson, and Liora Berger.

“[Our defence] was well-organized, and didn’t give up too many chances,” said head coach Barry MacLean. “We created way more chances than they did and it was a fair result for us.”

The Hawks now set their sights on the semi-finals as they face the Queen’s Gaels on Saturday at York University field.
