The Sting got stung as the Humber Hawks women’s extramural team ended the 2018 fall semester on a high with a 10-0 win over Seneca in an exhibition game.

After coming in first in the Humber North Tournament this game was set up as a fun way to end the semester.

The Hawks dominated the game, putting more shots on goal, controlling the puck, and keeping the puck in Seneca’s zone for the majority of the game.

Assistant coach Michelle Noorenberghe took over the coaching duties for this game against Seneca as head coach Mallory Lawton wasn’t able to lead due to sickness.

This was Norrenberghe’s first time as head coach and she aced it.

“We moved the girls around and we got to see how they did in other positions.  It all went smoothly,” Norrenberghe said.

Seneca defender Erin Derry said it’s difficult to play against the Hawks.

“Humber is a really fast team and there was really not much we could have done,” she said.

“When we play them again, we just to need have a little more offence and a little bit less defence,” Derry said.

Humber alumni Sam Usling, who in the stands, said the Hawks took advantage of Seneca’s weaknesses.

“Humber played very well and they exploited Seneca having a less-experienced goalie, which made the game very uneven,” Usling said.

“Humber played very, there was a lot of good passing and movement with the puck,” Usling said.

Humber Hawks centre Liz Keogh scored two of the 10 goals against Seneca.

“We could have passed the puck a little more and scored less but all in all it went very well,” she said.

After the exhibition game Humber Hawks women’s hockey team will have the rest of December off.

“This was a great game to practice our systems and get some skating time before the holidays and exams start up,” Norrenberghe said.

Tryouts for the winter semester are on Monday, Jan. 7, at Westwood Arena, on Woodbine Downs Boulevard near North campus. Practices begin on Jan. 14.

The next time Humber’s women hockey competes with be on Jan. 18 at the Lindsay Tournament hosted by the Fleming College Knights at the Lindsay Recreation Complex in Lindsay, Ont.
