Rebels Women’s Soccer Get Ready for the Season in Minnesota

September 9, 2015

WSoc Rebels in Minneapolis

The 2015 Rebels Women’s Soccer team is working towards one goal, a MCAC Championship. After finishing second to the Providence University College Pilots the previous two seasons, the Rebels are looking to finally breakthrough and capture their first MCAC title.

That long road started in Minneapolis, Minnesota over the Labour Day Weekend with three exhibition games against some top flight American competition.

Coach Doug Lawrie on the tournament. “This weekend’s series of three games against NJCAA Div 1 teams had three objectives: for players to better know each other on the field;  for me to continue my evaluation of players and to see some in different positions; and, team bonding off the field.  All three objectives were met. The competition was very good, including a game against #16 ranked Johnson County. I saw some excellent play by our team, but also some areas that we need to make important improvements.”

The Rebels went 0-2-1 over the three days, losing to Scott County College (Iowa) 3-2, Johnson County College (Kansas) 8-1, and tying Dakota County Technical College (Minnesota) 3-3.

Coach Lawrie noticed some key performances:  “Nadine Reimer with 2 goals, Jessica Lister who showed strength up front, Kaelyn Vincent who was dominant in the middle, Emeraude Kwilu who showed tremendous ball control and distribution and Lianne Fillion who was tireless and determined in defense.”

The Rebels start their MCAC regular season this upcoming weekend, Sunday September 13th at Brandon University.
