Hot foot gives Mac women second win


With two goals from Emma Mangialardi, the McMaster women’s soccer team captured its second win in as many games of the young Ontario University Athletics season, handing the visiting Windsor Lancers a 3-1 setback on Saturday.

Mangialardi, from Oakville, opened the scoring early in the West Division match with a strike from inside the 18-yard box at the six-minute mark. Just three minutes later, the Lancers would tie the score with a goal from Brianne Riccardi at 9:39.

Mangialardi connected for her third goal of the season with another strike from inside the box at 23:39 as the Marauders took a 2-1 lead into the half.

The Marauders final goal came from captain Mel Van Der Hoop (Oakville) at the 65 minute mark.

McMaster’s home stand continues on Sunday when the Western Mustangs play at 1 p.m. at Ron Joyce Stadium.
