Shelby Beck led her team to victory this weekend against the UNBC Timberwolves by scoring three of the Cascades’ five goals during the weekend doubleheader. Beck was the most potent striker on the pitch throughout the weekend as she converted chances both inside and outside the box, showing her touch in the fray and her accuracy from range.

On Friday Beck scored both UFV goals to lead her team to a 2-1 victory, while on Saturday she accrued a goal and an assist in a 3-0 Cascade result. As a consequence of the six-point weekend, UFV moved into first place in the Pacific division with a five-game win streak. (5-1-0)

“Shelby had an outstanding weekend,” said Cascades coach Rob Giesbrecht. “Her goal on Saturday was special, as she managed to pick the top corner from 35 yards out. Shelby has persevered to get herself physically ready to compete at the Canada West level and it’s great to see her now have the opportunity to showcase her outstanding attacking ability.”

This Friday, September 26th, the Cascades will play the TRU WolfPack at 2 pm at Bateman Park in Abbotsford.
