Sardis secondary grad Katie Lampen had a nice weekend with the University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer team, helping the Cascades to a pair of wins over Manitoba foes.
Lampen scored one of the UFV goals Friday in a 4-2 win over the University of Manitoba Bisons at the MRC Sports Complex in Abbotsford. The former Falcon got her upper body on a cross from Brittney Zacharuk, deflecting it into the net in the 41st minute for her first career U-Sports strike.
Hosting the University of Winnipeg Wesmen Saturday night, Lampen turned playmaker, setting up the first UFV goal in a 3-0 win. The freshman delivered a well-placed cross into the box for Bryana Buttar, who took a touch to evade a Wesmen defender and fired a shot into the bottom right corner.
Lampen was expected to have a role on this year’s Cascades, but she was thrust into a brighter spotlight when UFV’s star right winger, Jashan Sandhar, was lost to a knee injury. She’ll look to build on early success when her Cascades (2-1-1) head to Edmonton this weekend, taking on the MacEwan Griffins on Saturday and the Alberta Pandas on Sunday.
