Rough outing for Mohawk’s OCAA soccer teams

Tuesday (Sept. 30) was not a good day for either of Mohawk’s soccer teams at Mohawk Sports Park. Visiting Kitchener Conestoga scored a convincing sweep, 4-1 in the women’s game and 5-2 in the men’s contest.

The Condors scored a comfortable victory in the men’s Ontario Colleges Athletic Association game. For the Mountaineers, now 1-6-1 in the Central West Region, two first-year players scored. Hassan Hamed (Mississauga St. Joan of Arc) got his fourth goal of the season, while Matthew Luison (Hamilton St. Thomas More) collected his first.

Five different players scored for Conestoga, now 4-2 in the West. They were Jeremy Norris, Craig Chester, James Maclean, Nate Drury and Tonderai Gumbo.

The men get back into action Thursday (Oct. 2) when they make the short trip on the Mountain to Ancaster, to face the Redeemer Royals.

Things were looking good for the women when sophmore Kelsey Forbes (Burlington Robert Bateman), accepted a low cross and slotted the ball into the Conestoga goal to open the scoring.

But the Condors were in control the rest of the way and to rub salt into the wound, former Mountaineer Jessica Lee got two of Conestoga’s markers, with singles going to Jocelyn Lodder and Carmen Carnochan. Mohawk is now 2-4-1 in the Central West Region while Conestoga is 4-1 in the West.

The Mountaineers next game will be Friday when they visit the Redeemer Royals at 4:30 p.m.
