The Humber Hawks women’s indoor soccer team are victorious for the third straight year, beating the Fanshawe Falcons 4-2 in the final.

The first chance of the game came to the Hawks in the fourth minute when Rebecca Spratt intercepted a pass from the kick-in and shot it just wide of the net.

The Falcons won a penalty immediately after when Falcons forward Nicole Nielsen was pulled down by Claudia Piazza. Chelsea Zavitz converted the penalty, shooting it into the bottom left corner to beat goalkeeper Vanessa Fiore and give Fanshawe a 1-0 lead.

A good piece of individual skill from Nielsen created a chance as she set up Montana Gemmell, but defender Remi Pelletier came up with a big block to prevent the shot.

Humber tied the game at 1-1 in the 15th minute when Piazza intercepted a pass and took it down the wing before sending in a pass to Giulia Zanardi who finished with one touch.

Fanshawe made it 2-1 with minutes left in the first half when Zavitz scored her second of the match, beating Fiore short-side.

In the fifth minute of the second half, Rebecca Spratt’s pass inside the box was deflected which forced Falcons keeper Breanne Carreiro to push it behind for a corner.

Humber tied things up at 2-2 in the 10th minute as some nice interplay from the Hawks led to Piazza scoring a bar-down goal from the top of the box.

The Hawks went ahead 3-2 a couple minutes later when Piazza continued her run from her own half into Fanshawe’s box and scored as Zanardi created good hold-up play and provided the assist.

Humber kept piling on the pressure, creating multiple chances and put the game out of the Falcons reach with a few minutes left as Shaniece Bennett took on three players and scored to make it 4-2 and assure that the Hawks would take home their third gold medal in as many years.

Goalkeeper Vanessa Fiore and midfielder Giulia Zanardi were named to the Championship All-Star team. Midfielder Claudia Piazza was named Championship MVP as she scored two goals and assisted once.
