For the first time in program history, the UOIT women’s soccer team will finish the OUA season in first place in the east division.
With a 4-1 win over the RMC Paladins on Oct. 16 and an Ottawa Gee-Gees loss to Laurentian, the Ridgebacks officially claimed top spot in their division.
“Our players and coaches have worked hard all season, so to have them finish first is a great accomplishment and we’re proud of them,” said Scott Barker UOIT`s manager of intercollegiate athletics. “I know that they will continue to work hard towards their goal after they wrap up the regular season and am excited to see how we do in the postseason.”
Next Saturday the Ridgebacks wrap up conference play in Peterborough against the Trent Excalibur. Kick-off is 1 p.m.
