SUDBURY, ON - The Voyageurs women's soccer team punched their ticket to the second round of the OUA playoffs today as they upended the Carleton Ravens, 1-0 at LU soccer field.
The Voyageurs controlled the ball throughout the first half, creating many scoring opportunities which included a penalty kick in the 34th minute. Striker, Sarah Sanford took the line for the Voyageurs but was rejected by Ravens goalkeeper Rada Mintchev. Carleton created their own opportunities late in the half but both teams ended the first tied 0-0.
The second half was much of the same, with both teams trading scoring opportunities and both goalkeepers keeping their team in the game with timely saves. The tiebreaker came in the 81st minute when Sam Selkirk converted a cross from Brianne Rodrigue to net the lone goal of the game.
The Voyageurs now await the result of the remaining quarter-final games in order to determine who they will face, on the road, in the second round which will be played this weekend.
