Shae-Lynn Dodds continued to add to her career goal totals Friday night, but it wasn't enough for the Winnipeg Wesmen to pull off an upset.
Dodds, a third-year forward, scored her second goal of the season but the Wesmen women's soccer team dropped a 5-1 decision to the No. 3-ranked Trinity Western Spartans in Langley, B.C.
Dodds goal came in the 47' minute and drew the first career assist for Olivia Orman.
Dodds led the team in scoring last season with seven goals. With her two goals in three matches this season she is tied for second in the Canada West for most goals since the start of the 2018 season.
Trinity Western (2-0-1) fired 17 shots in the first half and 22 for the match, with 16 on target. Freshman Taryn Raabe made 10 saves, the second time this season she's logged double-digit saves.
TWU got two goals from Syd Duquette (7', 23') as well as Kathryn Harvey (20'), Jenaya Robertson (43') and Nicole Bolder (47').
The team will continue its first road trip of the season Saturday in Abbottsford, B.C. against the Fraser Valley Cascades.
