Audrey Sawers Earns Four Caps With Canada U-21 Team

Audrey Sawers started every game with the Canadian U21 team this weekend as the  team earned a third place medal in the friendly  team  tournament. Audrey earned her place on the team last year being observed by Canadian National team coaches in an all-nation tournament last summer.

This week end she played defense for her nation’s team who had two shut outs. They earned their third place finish after getting a goal in the 36 th minute on a penalty corner. The defense stepped from there on to deny their opponent, Scotland,a chance to tie it up.

While at Lafayette she played the midfield. She has started every game of her career at Lafayette after a distinguished career in high school. She will certainly be a key component in Lafayette’s NCAA division one fall campaign, as they compete in the Patriot League and hope for that mandatory spot in the NCAA national tournament.

Supported along the way she has received encouragement from her teammates at home and in the stands in Dublin. We are anticipating her return to Rappolt Field and helping her teammates to challenge for the Patriot League championship this fall.
