Western Mustangs women’s soccer open season with a win against UOIT

The Western Mustangs women’s soccer team got the 2012 regular season off to a good start Friday, defeating the University of Ontario Institute of Technology 1-0 on the women's side and 4-1 on the
men's in Oshawa.

Coming off a second-place finish at the annual Old Four Tournament, including shutting out defending CIS Champion Queen’s, it was another low-scoring contest for the Mustang women on Friday.

It was a scoreless affair for the majority of the match before first-year striker Lauren Winquist scored in the 88th minute, making her first game as a Mustang a memorable one. Another rookie, Oakville’s Tori Edgar, got the win in net backstopping Western to a shut out victory.

Friday’s win was the first for new head coach Martin Painter, who returned to Western in December 2011 after leading the Fanshawe College women’s team for the past five seasons. This past summer Painter also led FC London to the first Premier Development League title in team history.

Western Mustangs  Women’s Soccer draw against Windsor

Coming off of a win against the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in their season opener, the Western Mustangs women’s soccer teams were back on the pitch Monday night against the Windsor Lancers. The women earned a 2-2 draw and remain undefeated after the season’s opening weekend.

The Mustangs answered back with only a few minutes remaining in the first half as Marjolein Buiter scored her first goal of the season to send the game to halftime tied at one.

Lauren Winqvist put Western ahead in the 56th minute with her second goal in as many games. However Windsor was quick to respond, as Tina Vagnini netted the game’s final goal to make it a 2-2 final.

1:00 p.m.
