Christina Dickson of Burnaby, centre, scored two goals, including the game winner, in the Clan's 3-1 win over Humboldt State in a non-conference women's soccer match last week.

Christina and Allyson Dickson booted the Simon Fraser University women’s soccer team to its first season-opening win since 2010.

The Burnaby twin sisters, both freshmen, accounted for all three Clan goals in SFU’s 3-1 NCAA Division II non-conference victory over Humboldt State at Terry Fox Field on Saturday.

Christina opened the scoring with a shot to the top corner on a setup from her sister in the 14th minute.

Five minutes later, Humboldt State evened the score.

Christina also got the game winner 20 minutes into the second half off a long cross into the penalty area by Clan defender Mikela Fong.

The Burnaby North Secondary grad took the ball at her feet and fired the winner into the bottom right corner of the goal.

Allyson’s goal came in the 89th minute of the game, when she directed a ball into the net off a 30-yard free kick by Teagan Rae Sorokan.

Clan keeper Priya Sandhu stopped five shots on goal for the win.

Simon Fraser will travel to Hawaii, where it will play a pair of games before returning to open its Great Northwest conference season on the road at Seattle Pacific on Sept. 19.
