Div.2 Women’s Soccer Team Wins One And Loses One
WOMEN’S FLAG FOOTBALL
Report by Coach Tara Mrakic
Last weekend, the Cheetahs had another dominating performance, capturing a 25-12 & 19-2 wins over College Brébeuf and College Ahuntsic.
In game one, Quarterback, Allyson Sobol threw 2 touchdown passes (twice to Wide Receiver Savannah Toussaint Levesque) and scored a rushing touchdown with an exceptional run splitting the defense and taking it to the house 60 yards down field! Rookie Anisha Joshi is another rising star on the Cheetahs offence catching a pass from Allyson, she too splitting the defense and taking this TD 75 yards down field.
On defense, the unit held Brébeuf to limited production after they scored a quick touchdown in the 1st quarter to take an early lead . They played with great discipline which frustrated their opponents all game long. They continued to bring pressure the rest of the day with a key interception by Michelle Samaha on a kick-off return.
In game two, the Cheetahs defense held Ahuntsic scoreless the entire game. Veteran Defensive Back, Michelle Samaha showed great leadership on the field. We saw a number of knockdowns by Shianne Leslie, Tatiana Bakos, and some key QB pressure by Savannah Toussaint Levesque playing double duty giving Rochelle Bethelmy a break. The unit has only allowed only three touchdowns after 4 games.
The Cheetahs are fortunate to have many different weapons on offence and defense this season which has enabled them to be so successful thus far!
With these two wins, the Cheetahs improve their record to 4-0. Catch them in action this coming Sunday, as they take on Cégep Granby at Parc Bernadette. Kickoff starts at 12:30pm. See you there!!
Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose…Go Cheetahs!

Two reports by Jamie Rabinovitch with info from Coach Patrice Glemaud
Friday: Women’s Soccer Team makes comeback and wins 2-1 in a very physical affair Sunday: Women’s Soccer Team’s undefeated run ends in ugly 7-1 loss at Montmorency
The women’s soccer team make a comeback to win 2-1 playing at the new Vanier field for the first time. The win improved their record to 3-0-0, getting them off to a fast start early in the season. The Cheetahs did this despite being reduced to 10 players after a player received a red card and was ejected. After giving up a goal late in the first half, they dominated the second half and completed the comeback with two goals late in the second half. The first goal came off a free kick rebound with a high arching kick by Jade Davis. The second goal was a penalty scored by Alessia Di Sabato with five minutes left which secured the victory. The Cheetahs showed a lot of resolve being down a goal AND down a player for most of the game. That should bode well going forward.
However, on Sunday, the women’s soccer team got beaten soundly by the score of 7-1 at Montmorency. This dropped their record to 3-1-0, but they still hold on to first place in league play. The Cheetahs played hard but Montmorency’s best player went wild scoring 4 goals in the rout. Chonelle Montpetit scored the lone Vanier goal to avoid the shutout. One the positive side the Cheetahs are still in first place and have a home game on Saturday to have a bounce back. The game will be this Saturday, September 27th at 3:00 PM VS Outaouais.

Two penalty shots the difference in Men’s Soccer defeat
Vanier’s Division 1 Men Soccer Cheetahs lost a hard-fought 1-0 road game to Rosemont tonight. This brings their record to 0-2-2. The Cheetahs ended up playing shorthanded when last-minute news was delivered that 3 of there starting 11 were out of the game due to injury and personal reasons. Despite all that, the Cheetahs nearly went up 1-0 when they were awarded a penalty shot, but Rosemont’s goalie made the save. In the second half Rosemont got a penalty shot early and capitalized on it. The Cheetahs fought hard to get the tying goal but it was not to be. Despite the loss, it was encouraging that Vanier played well in the face of adversity. The subs who the replaced the starters did an admirable job in relief and played veryy well. The guys are looking forward to playing at home this coming Friday, September 26th VS John Abbott at 8:00 PM!
