The UFV Cascades women opened their season with a 2-0 victory over the UNBC Timberwolves on Friday.
Jade Palm of Powell River scored the only goal the Cascades would need, converting a Paige Friesen (Abbotsford) corner 12 minutes in. It was one of 10 corner kicks the Cascades had in the game. The Timberwolves had none.
Danica Kump of Surrey made it 2-0 in the 75th minute.
"We got the result we wanted tonight. Had we finished a few more of our chances we would have been able to play more of our reserves. Give UNBC all the credit for playing an excellent game," said UFV head coach Rob Giesbrecht. "I was very proud of our young team. They did not get frustrated and showed a tremendous amount of maturity tonight."
The Cascades women play the 0-0-1 UBC Thunderbirds on Sept. 13 at UBC.
