KAMLOOPS — A season that did'nt start with much promise for a young, rebuilding WolfPack women's soccer team, has suddenly turned into one with a playoff hope.
"Not a lot was expected by a lot of other people", says head coach Kelly Shantz, "we set goals at the start of the year, things we thought we could accomplish."
Playoffs was one of those.
They're not there yet, but with the events in the last two games, no chance has suddenly become a chance.
The Wolfpack have won the last two games, one by a UBCO forfeit, which has moved them into sole possession of the last playoff in the Pacific Division.
"I have to admit, we're, what I think, is a little bit ahead of schedule." says Shantz.
With four games left, all at home and suddently with a legitimate shot at the playoffs in a season that was expected, by many, to be a writeoff.
"We've circled these last four", says Shantz, "with a litte bit of luck we have a shot at a playoff."
It's not to say the WolfPack have played above their heads in any of their three wins --- but they might have to in the remaining schedule against Lethbridge and Calgary here this weekend, and then UNBC and MacEwan nets weekend.
Shantz says he feels the WolfPack will have to win at least two of those games, minimum, to realize the playoff dream.
The WolfPack play Lethbridge tomorrow (Saturday) at 1pm and Calgary Sunday at 2pm, both at Hillside Stadium.
