Mohawk takes shine off Golden Shield


It was a tough trip for the Cambrian Golden Shield, travelling to Hamilton from Sudbury. The visitors from the Nickel City lost both the men’s and women’s basketball games Friday and Mohawk downed them handily for the second day in a row Saturday (Nov. 9), at the David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre.

As a result, both Mohawk teams are 4-1 in the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association West Division, while both Cambrian teams are 0-6.

The Mountaineer women coasted to a 66-31 victory, as Stef Hrymak scored 17 points. Natalie Fisher scored nine, Allyson DeLorenzi had eight and Katelyn Arbour and Carissa Browne each contributed seven.
