Mohawk women let two-goal lead slip away

It was an extremely windy day in Windsor and the Mohawk women should have taken more advantage of the conditions in their 2-2 tie with St. Clair.

That’s the assessment of a very disappointed head coach Renzo Castellani, who saw his team take a 2-0 lead and then have to settle for a 2-2 final score in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association women’s soccer play.

Carlee Myles worked her way up the field from her sweeper position to open the scoring for the Mountaineers. Then Ashley Hagen gave the visitors their two-goal margin. But the coach said his team should have been farther in front.

“We had the wind in the first half and were playing really well,” said Castellani. “We missed four or five chances which should have made the margin much greater. Instead, St. Clair scored twice in the second half. Even though we got a point we should have done better. We didn’t play up to our standard.”

The Mountaineers are now 1-1-1.

Mohawk will play in Sarnia against the Lambton Lions on Saturday afternoon (Sep. 25).
