Trudging through soaking wet conditions, the UNBC Timberwolves once again fell short on home field Friday night to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
The Huskies came out firing in the opening stages of the match, keeping T-Wolves Goalkeeper Mitch MacFarlane busy to keep the game scoreless in the first half.
In the second, UNBC came out with a chip on its shoulder as Cheona Edzerza bent a kick from just outside the 18 yard box forcing Huskies Keeper, Greg Buckley to make the diving save. A quick rebound opportunity from Dan Goodey would then go wide right.
Despite a fighting spirit from the young squad, the Timberwolves found themselves in some trouble in the 66th minute when the Huskies’ Jacob Powell pounced on a chance from outside the box off of a corner kick. Powell drilled the ball into the top right corner. MacFarlane got a piece of the ball, but it wasn’t enough to save it.
From there, Saskatchewan never looked back. Sam Whiting got the insurance goal in the 82nd minute, while Mohamed Omar put the nail in the coffin in added time.
The final score ended 3-0 in favour of Saskatchewan. UNBC drops to 1-6 on the season, while the Huskies improved to 1-3-1.
The Timberwolves will now play host to the University of Winnipeg Wesmen this Sunday at 11 a.m.
