Second-year forward Shae-Lynn Dodds continued her career year Saturday as the Winnipeg Wesmen women's soccer team dropped a 6-1 decision to the undefeated Alberta Pandas.

Dodds extended her goal-scoring streak to three games with a mark in the 78th minute, but the Wesmen were unable to hold back a steady onslaught from the only undefeated team in the Canada West conference.

The Pandas fired 31 shots – 15 of them on goal – and scored less than five minutes into the game when Brenna Mattiello beat Madison Fordyce to put U of A up 1-0.

Nicole Palladino and Karissa McNutt, who would also add two assists on the day, added first-half goals to give the Pandas a 3-0 lead after 45 minutes.

Anna Dunn would make it 4-0 in the 72nd minute before Dodds got the Wesmen on the board.

Dodds, who scored two goals as a rookie last season, remained among the leaders in the Canada West in scoring her fifth of the season, which puts her in a tie for second place in the conference. Kallee Oliveira drew the assist on Dodds' goal, her first career Canada West point.

Sydney Daines and Mackenna Parks added the final two goals to the ledger for Alberta (6-0-1)

Madison Fordyce made nine saves in the defeat, which dropped Winnipeg's record to 0-4-3.

Rebecca Reif made five saves in the win.

The Wesmen head to Calgary for a Sunday afternoon clash with the Mount Royal Cougars before returning home for a Thursday match-up against the Manitoba Bisons.
