Marauders go seven games unbeaten in women’s soccer

McMasterAnother road trip, another hard-fought point for the McMaster women’s soccer team. The Marauders came away from Windsor with a 1-1 draw against the Lancers on Friday night (Sept. 27), after a goal from rookie striker Anne Yeboah levelled the Ontario University Athletics match in the 76th minute.

The result extends the 3-1-5 Marauders unbeaten streak to seven games and maintains their fourth-placed position in the OUA West standings.

The first half came and went without a goal, but Windsor opened the scoring early in the second. First-year striker Kendra Thomas struck in the 49th minute to give the hosts the lead.

McMaster responded in the 76th minute, when Yeboah connected for her team-leading third goal of the season to knot the game. That score held out, as the Marauders secured their fifth draw of the season.

Windsor’s Tara Bernard-Rae was the busier of the two goalkeepers, as McMaster forced eight saves from her on nine shots. Marauder Brittany Duffey saved four of five shots on goal in the draw.

The Marauders return home on Sunday to resume conference play against the Guelph Gryphons (5-4-0) at Ron Joyce Stadium. The opening whistle for that matinee encounter is slated for 1 p.m.
