(London, Ontario) – The Fanshawe Women's Soccer team won a hard fought 2-0 match over Seneca in their CCAA bronze medal semi-final game on Friday morning. The Championship is being held in Edmonton, Alberta and hosted by Concordia University.
In a rematch of the OCAA Championship match, Angelika Mihalopulos (London, ON) scored for the Falcons when she found the end of a bouncing ball from a Daniella Strano (London, ON) free kick. The goal was scored in the 45th minute, right before the end of the first frame. In the second half, up a player due to a Falcons' red card in the 60th minute, Seneca was able to generate pressure. However, Fanshawe battled and showed determination in holding off the Sting. The red and white scored again on a counterattack breakaway by CCAA Player of the Year Jade Kovacevic (Acton, ON). The Falcons would hold on to the 2-0 lead to advance to their second consecutive national bronze medal match, as the Falcons are the reigning CCAA bronze medalists. Kovacevic was named the player of the match for Fanshawe.
Fanshawe will now face RSEQ champion Champlain St-Lambert. The bronze medal match will take place on Saturday, November 9 at 12:00pm EST (10:00am MST). The game time has been moved up due to the weather conditions in Edmonton. Viewers can watch the game live on the CCAA website: https://portal.stretchinternet.com/ccaasportsacsc/ .
