The Kwantlen Eagles closed out the CCAA (Canadian Colleges Athletic Association) women’s soccer championships with a win.

In a playoff for seventh place at the eight-team competition Saturday morning at Newton Athletic Park, the KPU (Kwantlen Polytechnic University) Eagles topped the Holland Hurricanes 4-1. The Eagles fell behind after just four minutes of play, but responded quickly. Rubeen Sidhu scored two minutes later to tie the game, and by the time the game was 30 minutes old, the Eagles were in control with a 3-1 lead. Defender Gurneet Josan was named Player of the Match for Kwantlen.

The MacEwan Griffins of Alberta won the tournament, defeating Quebec’s Garneau Elans 2-0 in the final.

Kwantlen, the tournament’s host team, won the Fair Play Award.
