Late goal downs Dinos

The Dinos lost to the Regina Cougars 2-1 on Sunday in a close game. Despite Caitline Milne scoring the first goal of the game 21 minutes in, the Dinos were unable to hold on to their lead. Regina scored an equalizer in the 32nd minute leaving the game tied at the end of the first half.

“Milne scored off a breakaway. She got the ball through and she had, I think, another one just before that and didn’t convert, so I think she took her time a little more the second time and was able to put it in,” said Robin Slot, women’s soccer head coach.

Regina got the only goal of a close second half to take the lead 2-1.

“We started the game very well against Regina and had numerous chances and then did score a goal and took the lead,” said Slot. “We sort of failed to continue and they got one back and then it was pretty even all the way through. Unfortunately they scored another goal and we just couldn’t come back from that.”

The Dinos play their next two games against Lethbridge on Saturday and Sunday.

“We’re getting those chances, it’s just a matter of putting them in,” said Slot. “If we continue to generate those changes then we stand a good chance of winning so if we do that and play well defensively too, then there’s no reason why we can’t win.”
