The Storyline
No. 4 Humber (4-0, 1st Central) will host the George Brown Huskies (2-3, 4th Central) Wednesday evening at the Ontario Soccer Centre. The match will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network at 6 p.m. with Matt Hammel and Kyle Dalton on the call.

Last Time Out
Facing a gritty Cambrian defence, the Hawks couldn't solve Golden Shield keeper Megan Coutu in the first half, despite firing 14 shots on net.

After the break, Claudia Piazza was finally able to beat Coutu, giving Humber a 1-0 lead in the 47th minute. Shortly after, Emily Tirabassi scored her second of the season, putting Humber up by two.

Freshman Lily Campbell had numerous scoring chances throughout the match found difficulty trying to beat the Cambrian keeper. Finally, in the 68th minute, Campbell found the back of the net, recording her first career goal for Humber.

In the 81st minute, Giulia Zanardi converted a beautiful cross from Hayley Mackie, recording her third goal of the season.

As time ran down, Rebecca Spratt scored, securing Humber's 5-0 win.

Scouting George Brown

  • At No. 9 Sheridan, George Brown tied the match at two in the 80th minute but was unable to hold on for the draw.
  • Brianna Samuels-McLaughlin leads the Huskies in scoring, sitting eighth in the conference with four tallies.
  • Humber is 6-0 all-time at home against George Brown.

Share the Wealth
Humber has scored 22 goals this season off the boots of 11 different student-athletes. Since 2010, the Hawks have averaged ten goal scorers each season.

Rank and File
Humber opened the season as the ninth-ranked program in the country. After a 4-0 start to begin the '18 campaign, the Hawks have moved up to the fourth spot and are currently the highest ranked program in the province.

Scoring Overload
The Hawks are on pace to score 55 goals this season which would shatter the program record from 2000, where Humber scored 48 goals in ten matches. Its scoring average of 5.5 goals-per-game would also be a new a program record, beating the 2011 mark of 4.8 gpg.

Defence Wins Championships
The Hawks boast the top defence in the province, allowing less than one shot-per-match this season.
