Pack’s national championship dreams dashed

Indiennes d’Ahuntsic of Montreal abruptly ended the TRU WolfPack’s run for gold at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) women’s soccer championship in Charlottetown, P.E.I., on Wednesday, Nov. 7.

TRU lost 4-0.

The WolfPack still have a shot at reaching the bronze-medal tilt, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 13.

Two members of the WolfPack were named CCAA all-Canadians this week.

Alanna Bekkering and Blair MacKay, both of Kamloops, were named to the team, thanks to on-field performance and contributions to their team and the sport of soccer.

Bekkering led the Pacific Western Athletic Association with five goals in 11 matches and was the MVP of the PacWest championship.

MacKay was the WolfPack’s co-captain and organized the team’s community work.
