PCSL’s Okanagan FC women home for two this weekend

Claire Paterson's soccer team is 4-2-2 with two games coming up at UBCO

Okanagan FC is back on its home turf this weekend for Pacific Coast League Premier Division women’s soccer action.

On Saturday at UBC Okanagan Okanagan will take on the Whitecaps Prospects at 3 p.m.

Then on Sunday at 1 p.m., Abbotsford will provide the opposition at Nonis Field.

Okanangan FC is 4-2-2 on the season after earning a split on the road last weekend, despite having a shortened bench.

On Saturday, at Trinity Western University, Okanagan came up short against Fraser Valley Action losing 3-2. Michelle Smith tallied both goals in the loss, the first at the eight-minute mark and the second on a corner kick in the second half.

On Sunday, Paige Ralston and Haylee Lakovic, with her first of the season, scored in a 2-0 Okanagan win over Coquitlam Metro Ford.

Ralston tallied in the 70th minute when her shot squirted between the legs of the Coquitlan, while Lakovic scored minutes later when laced a shot from 20 yards out that found the top of the net.

Keeper Christine Tallon earned her first shutout of the season.

“It was a gutsy performance this weekend playing two games back to back with 13 players,” said head coach Claire Paterson. “Several athletes were juggled around into new positions and they did very well to step into those spots where needed.”
