Cowichan women’s soccer team ties Nanaimo

Cowichan ended a five-game losing streak – which included four straight 1-0 defeats – with a 2-2 draw against Nanaimo at Evans Park last Sunday.

"We could have won," coach Marilyn Pugh said. "I don’t know if we should have, but I’m very happy with a tie and especially that we finally got a couple of goals again."

Nanaimo opened the scoring when Cowichan left a player unmarked in front of the net. Cowichan responded with a goal by Rachel Pugh on a beautiful cross by Letitia Turlock.

Jessica Robinson gave Cowichan the lead, stuffing home the rebound off a hard shot by Nicole Pugh.

"There was a scramble in front of the net with numerous feet kicking at the rebound and fortunately Jess was able to get a boot on it and put it in," the coach said.

Nanaimo came back to score the tying goal, and nearly went ahead, but Heather Morson was standing in the goal mouth and managed to kick it away.

Cowichan will be at home again this weekend, hosting Gorge FC at Evans Park at noon.
