Mohawk soccer rookies tested in OCAA play

The Mountaineer Men are still looking for that elusive first victory of the early Ontario Colleges Athletic Association men’s soccer season. The Mountaineers lost 3-0 to the Sheridan Bruins in Oakville on Sunday (Sep. 21). Mohawk saw it’s record slip to 0-3-1 in the Central West Region.

Sheridan led 1-0 at half time.

Mohawk head coach Richard Bennett said his charges started off well, but couldn’t hold it together the whole way. The rookie-laden team is finding college soccer difficult, but Bennett is in no way giving up on them.

“We’re just not getting the job done, said Bennett. “We have a young team and there’s a lot of work to do still.” There’s also a lot of season left. Having played only four of 12 games, the Mountaineers will welcome the Fanshawe Falcons, Tuesday (Sep. 23) at 4:30 p.m. at Mohawk Sports Park.
