Mountaineers climb to third in women’s OCAA soccer

Mohawk marched into Oakville and came away with a 3-1 win over the Sheridan Bruins in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association women’s soccer on Sunday (Sep. 21). The victory moved the Mountaineers into second place in the Central West Region.

The Mountaineers, who led 2-0 at the half, on goals by Holley Smith and Leanne Ardron, put the game away on Kira Wilkinson’s second half marker. Sheridan got a late consolation goal.

Mohawk head coach Renzo Castellani was once again pleased with the play of his young side which, for this game, found itself a bit short of personnel on the substitute’s bench. “That made it tough in the second half, said Castellani, “but they came through. Once again, the rookies came to play.” The coach was also pleased the goals from Smith and Wilkinson came on free kicks.

Mohawk, at 1-1-1, has taken four of a possible six points from Sheridan, now 0-3-1.

The Mountaineers’ next game will be Tuesday (Sep. 23) against London’s Fanshawe Falcons. The kick off will be at 4:30 p.m. at Mohawk Sports Park.
