Friday, Mohawk beat Durham, 2-1, on goals from Shari Leavitt and Rachelle DeJong.

Meanwhile, the Mountaineer men finished their play Saturday with a 1-1 draw with Centennial. Ahmed Mohamed tallied for the Mountaineers. The Colts’ lone marker came from the penalty spot.

Friday, the Mohawk men bowed 4-3 to Durham despite a three-goal performance from Anthony Halm.

The Mohawk men and women open the OCAA regular season Saturday, Sept. 6 at home versus Sheridan.
