Caruso sparks Mountaineers in women’s soccer tune-up

The Mohawk women’s soccer team had an encouraging performance in preparation for their Ontario Colleges Athletic Association opener. The Mountaineers downed Niagara College 3-1 in an exhibition contest at Mohawk Sports Park on Wednesday (Sept. 10).

Zalona Caruso scored a goal in each half to pace the locals’ attack. Christina DeFranco raced after a loose ball and slotted it home for the third Mohawk marker.

The Mountaineers start their OCAA regular season on Friday (Sept. 12) at home against the Sheridan Bruins. The same colleges also meet in men’s action.

Both games get under way at 4:30 p.m. at Mohawk Sports Park.
