Rewind Day 6: Women’s Soccer Championship: MacEwan Griffins

By dispatching the top-ranked Trinity Western Spartans 3-2 in the gold medal match, the MacEwan Griffins not only won their first U SPORTS soccer championship, but their first U SPORTS championship in school history.

Third-year goalkeeper Bianca Castillo – who came off the bench late in extra time to replace injured starter Breanna Truscott – made the game-winning stop on senior forward Kathryn Harvey of the Spartans in penalty kicks.

In the program’s first appearance at a national championship tournament since making the jump to the U SPORTS level in 2014, MacEwan garnered gold, while the Spartans, looking for their sixth Canadian university title, had to settle for silver.
