The Storyline
Humber welcomes the reigning provincial champion Fanshawe Falcons Wednesday evening for its 2019 home opener. The match will be streamed live on the Hawks Sports Network beginning at 4:30 p.m.

*Programming note: no audio commentary will be available for the game.

Last Time Out
In a controversial match to open the season, Humber fell to the Niagara Knights on Sept. 6 in Welland, 3-2. Lily Campbell recorded both goals for the Hawks.

The loss snapped Humber's OCAA regular season win streak at 20 – one shy of the program record set in 2001.

Scouting Fanshawe

  • The Falcons captured the OCAA title last season with a 3-2 win over Humber.
  • Fanshawe features the two-time lead scoring champion Jade Kovacevic, who scored 30 goals in 10 matches last season. The fifth-year striker has recorded 79 tallies in three-plus seasons in the OCAA.
  • The Hawks are 3-2-3 all-time against the Falcons at home.

Previous Meeting
Humber's bid for the program's eighth provincial title last season came up short with a 3-2 loss to the Falcons. Despite trailing for the first time all season, the Hawks rallied to bring the difference to one goal when Giulia Zanardi converted a penalty kick in the 90th minute to force overtime.

In the early minutes of the extra frame, Nicole Nielson scored the game-winner for Fanshawe.

Home is Where the Heart is
Humber has won 11 consecutive matches at home – the second longest streak in program history. The Hawks are 80-8-12 (.860) all-time when playing at home in the regular season.

What's Next?
Humber will begin a three-match road trip beginning with Conestoga on Sept. 14. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
