The women's soccer team at the University of Windsor is off to its best start since 2017 following a 2-0 shutout win over Western Friday night.
Kailyn Robertson scored her 6th goal of the year while Faith Akinkuade scored in the 90th minute to ice the game as Windsor moves to 3-0-1. "Big win. We came out knowing we could do it but just feeling it after, so good." Robertson said. "I've been here, this is my third year. I've never beat Western but I guess in 10 years we haven't beat Western so it feels really really good."
The Mustangs tried to pressure the Lancers but Windsor's defence held strong while Jordan Samping held the fort with her 3rd clean sheet of the season. "It was for sure a team win and a team fight." said Samping, who lowered her goals against average to 0.25. "We knew coming in it was going to be a hard game, it was going to be competitive but we pulled through and we played I think amazing."
The win moves Windsor into sole possession of first place in the OUA West. It's their best start since 2017 when the Lancers opened the season with a win and three ties en route to a 3-5-8 record. "We're on a high. That's really what it is. We're just happy and excited because the work is paying off."
