Tie gives Mohawk fifth game without a loss

Forty-year-old Sheldon Redhead scored in the dying minutes as the Mohawk men’s soccer team stretched its Ontario Colleges Athletic Association unbeaten record to five games drawing 2-2 with the Niagara Knights at Mohawk Sports Park on Tuesday (Sept. 29).

Redhead, who played for Hamilton Italia in the over-35 league, joined the Mountaineers when he came to the college to take the Police Foundations course.

Yousef Mohammad got the other Mohawk goal, his eighth of the season which puts him among the league leaders.

Niagara’s Matt Miedema scored his eighth and ninth goals to pace the Knights. The second half of the game featured a lengthy stoppage due to an injury to Mountaineers’ rookie goalkeeper Sergio Giusti, who had to be replaced by Jordan Dykstra.

Mohawk is now 3-1-3 for 12 points, which leaves them tied with Sheridan for second place. But the Bruins have six games left, while Mohawk has just five, including a matchup with St. Clair Saints on Friday (Oct. 2) at 4:30 p.m. at Mohawk Sports Park.
