If you need to lay siege to an opposing team's net, it helps to have a Trojan horse.
The UNBC Timberwolves picked up striker/forward Sage Meyers in a transfer from the SAIT Trojans on Monday. Meyers, who scored seven goals in nine starts for the Trojans during her freshman year, might just be the secret weapon the T-wolves need as they head out on a preseason roadtrip to Victoria this week.
"Sage has been great for the group already," Timberwolves coach Neil Sedgwick said in a press release. "She has been really good around the goal, which is where she excelled at SAIT... I am excited to have her as part of this program."
Sedgwick recruited the five-foot-four, 19-year-old environmental engineering student from St. Timothy High School in Cochrane, Alta. in 2018, but Meyers thought she could use a year playing in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference before joining UNBC. During her year with the Trojans, SAIT went 12-0 and advanced to the final.
She joins fellow 2018-19 SAIT teammate Sarah Lepine on the Timberwolves roster.
"Soccer at SAIT was a really good experience. I definitely have a lot more confidence playing," Meyers said in a press release. "It would be a way difference experience if I came up alone. (I am) coming with with someone (I) have played with. I has been great. I am so excited to be here."
The T-wolves open their regular season at noon on Sept. 5 with a home game against Thompson Rivers University at Masich Place Stadium.
