MISSISSAUGA, ON. (September 13) – The University of Toronto Mississauga Eagles Varsity women’s soccer team began their inaugural season against Sheridan College on the North Field at UTM. 

The UTM women fell behind early in the contest allowing a goal in the second minute. They held on for almost the entire half trying to bring it to even, but Sheridan scored their second goal in extra time in the first half.  The second goal late was all the momentum UTM needed, as they came out strong in the second scoring five unanswered goals.

The Sheridan women have years of experience behind them, something that UTM will need to gain rapidly to become competitive at this level. Damian Yearwood, head coach of the UTM women squad, believes his team still needs some building upon to compete at a high level. Younger athletes will grow into their role and with the training they’ll become much more physically competitive.

The remainder of the season consists of nine more games; four at home and five on the road. UTM is the sixth team affiliated with the women’s division, so they still have the opportunity to avenge their opening defeat when they play Sheridan College September 29th on the road.

First, the women look to get back on the training field to work on their game hoping for a better result and improving on their 0-1 record against George Brown on September 20th.
