PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - The Ryerson Rams women's soccer team is headed back to the OUA post-season for the first time since 2007 after a 6-0 thumping of the Trent Excalibur on Wednesday evening.
Veteran forward Kendra Welham continues to be a force for the Rams, as the Oakville, Ont. native notched the game's first two markers in the 9th and 37th minute respectively. She is the team's scoring leader with seven goals this fall.
With the win, the Rams (6-6-1) have clinched a playoff berth after missing the post-season three years in a row. The women's win total of six is also a team record. The most wins a Ryerson Rams women's soccer team previously recorded in a season was five in both the 2007 and 2008 seasons.
The Rams have also set a team-record in goals scored in a single season with 22, and are just one point shy of their highest season point total. They currently have 19, while the 2007 squad posted 20.
With three games remaining, the women are also putting pressure on Carleton and Laurentian, who are tied for fourth place. Ryerson is just one point back of the Ravens and Lady Vees.
The Rams will return to the city for a contest this Sunday with their downtown rival, the CIS No. 9-ranked Toronto Varsity Blues.
The Rams will conclude the regular season in eastern Ontario next weekend against the Ottawa Gee-Gees and Carleton Ravens.
