The Concordia Stingers women’s soccer team picked up a win and a tie on the weekend to vault into playoff contention in the RSEQ conference.
The Stingers tied the UQTR Patriotes 2-2 last Friday at the 12th annual Erica Cadieux memorial game. Sarah Humes and Chama Sedki scored the goals in front of a great crowd of women’s soccer alumni and members of the Cadieux family.
In addition, the team collected more than $1000 worth of donations in cash and toys to support the Montreal Children’s Hospital’s Child Life Department in honour of Erica Cadieux. The department helps children, youth and their families cope with the healthcare experience by offering developmentally-appropriate activities, opportunities for play, preparation for medical procedures and emotional support.
On Sunday, Concordia defeated the McGill Martlets 1-0, again on a goal from Sedki. Goalkeeper Gabriela Angoso-Jimenez made seven saves for the shutout.
It was the Stingers’ first victory over the Martlets in almost five years – since a 1-0 decision on Oct. 11, 2012.
After six games, the Stingers have one win, two losses and three ties for six points. They currently sit in fourth place in the eight-team conference.
This Friday, the Stingers will travel to Sherbrooke to face the Vert & Or. They return home Sunday to host the Bishop’s Gaiters at 1 p.m.
