The Gees have shown a lot of promise early in the season, and should continue to get better as their young core continues to gain experience.
Despite the result, head coach Steve Johnson was pleased with the way his team played in the game.
After ripping off nine consecutive wins to start the season, the Gee-Gees have not picked up a victory in their last five games.
The Gee-Gees sit atop the OUA East division as the only undefeated team.
The game was even more important for the Gee-Gees as they said goodbye to their star seniors—Cynthia Leblanc, Julia Francki, and Pilar Khoury along with role players Mélissa Pesant, and Elisabeth Wong.
The University of Ottawa women’s soccer team battled through heat, humidity, and injuries to get their first two wins of the season in back-to-back matches against the Nipissing Lakers, and Laurentian Voyageurs.
The Gee-Gees were playing somewhat hobbled, with multiple injuries stemming from last year’s lengthy playoff run. Talent still exists in this Gee-Gees squad, but it’ll take time for this year’s team to click.
