    CCAA Women’s Soccer Playoffs

    So here we are, the playoffs have arrived and we are moving right along to see who will qualify for the trips to Summerside, PE in a week’s time.

    So here are the schedules and we’ll update you all as the weekend goes on.

    Enjoy the fun, the drama and the games that create it all.


    Previews are courtesy of the OCAA from October 26, 2023

    Durham (8-1-1, 2nd East) vs. Humber (7-0-3, 1st West)
    Friday, Oct. 27 – 1 p.m.

    Humber remains the only team not to lose a match this season. If the Hawks keep this streak alive for two more games, they will win their second consecutive OCAA championship.

    The West Division champions are battle tested this post-season, defeating the Sheridan Bruins 2-1 in overtime before hanging on to defeat the Algonquin Wolves 3-2. Third-year midfielder Cara Serapiglia (Mississauga) scored the overtime winner and fifth-year player Emma Genova (Toronto) scored a pair of goals in the latter contest.

    Standing in the way of the Hawks are the Durham Lords who are undefeated in nine matches, including a 6-2 win over the St. Lawrence Surge in the qualifying round, and a 1-0 win over the Mohawk Mountaineers in the quarter-finals. First-year defender Erin Michalicka (Pickering) scored the lone goal against the Mountaineers.

    This match-up features two of the top three scorers during regular season play, with Durham’s second-year striker Sage Thomas-Roberts (Toronto) scoring 22 goals, and Humber’s third-year forward Kaitlynn Russell (Mississauga) leading the West Division with a baker’s dozen.

    Durham’s last OCAA championship came in 2007. Because there is no interdivisional play during the regular season, this is the first meeting between these teams this season.

    St. Clair (7-1-2, 2nd West) vs. Seneca (9-1, 1st East)
    Friday, Oct. 27 – 4 p.m.

    The East Division champion Seneca Sting overwhelmed opponents during the regular season, outscoring their rivals 85-5. It has been a similar theme in two post-season matches, as Seneca came away with an 11-0 victory over the Loyalist Lancers and a 6-0 win over the Conestoga Condors.

    Seneca’s fourth-year forward Shanice Alfred (Airdrie, Alta.) was the OCAA Scoring Champion during the regular season with 25 goals, but it is second-year teammate Francesca Famele (Brampton) who leads all players in the post-season with five tallies after scoring just twice in six regular season games.

    The St. Clair Saints will be Seneca’s toughest test to date. Unbeaten in eight straight matches, the Saints led the West Division with 46 total goals, while allowing just six against. St. Clair defeated the Niagara Knights 6-0 in the qualifying round, before eliminating the Centennial Colts 1-0 on a goal by second-year defender Karlee Tinline (Cambridge). Of note, Centennial was the only team to hand Seneca a loss during regular season play.

    The Saints also had an OCAA Top 5 scorer during the regular season. First-year forward Victoria Walsh (Georgetown) scored 11 goals in 10 matches in West Division action.

    Seneca last won the OCAA championship in 2014, while St. Clair hasn’t celebrated gold since 1988. Similar to the first semi-final, because there is no interdivisional play during the regular season, this is the first meeting between these clubs this season.

    CUE, NAIT, & TKU are excited to host the 2023 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Soccer Championships. Taking part in the event will be six (6) of the province’s best collegiate women’s soccer teams at the Edmonton Soccer Dome October 26 to 28, 2023. All roads lead north as the best teams from across the conference will compete for the coveted conference championship and a spot at the 2023 CCAA National Championships. All games will be played at the state-of-the-art Edmonton Soccer Dome in Edmonton.

    The Edmonton Soccer Dome is located on the Scottish Society’s private 22 acre site, just minutes from the Edmonton International airport. The new 135,000 Square foot air support structure will be the first facility in Canada to install the brand new FieldTurf CORE turf product, the latest and most advanced turf on the market. 

    The dome is a full size, fully lit and airconditioned indoor facility, so rain outs, lightning stoppages and mosquitos do not effect play. There is 4 dressing rooms, ample parking and a full bar onsite.
