Another season of Mountaineer athletics is underway

Kayla McPerson's goal, with just seven minutes remaining, gave the Sheridan Bruins a 3-2 win over the Mohawk Mountaineers in the opening game of the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association women's soccer season at the Redeemer Sports Complex last Saturday.

 The visitors from Oakville needed fewer than two minutes to open the scoring as Alexis Borges struck. Mohawk nearly equalized when Leanne Gyenes hit the crossbar.

 The Mountaineers finally got on even terms when Jessica Minor pounced on the ball after an excellent cross from Laura Fable eluded a pair of Bruins' defenders in the 38th minute.

 Eight minutes after the break, Michaela Krampert got free and slotted the ball home to give Sheridan a 2-1 lead.

 Fable, a first year player from Hamilton, found some space and made no mistake, tying the score for Mohawk in the 68th minute.

 However, McPherson spoiled things for the home side with the late winner.

 The Bruins played the last 10 minutes down a player after Kendra Cooper was dismissed for a second yellow card.

 Men’s soccer 

It was not a good start to the OCAA season for the Mohawk men’s soccer side.

They were stunned 9-1 by the Sheridan Bruins last Saturday.

Mohawk actually opened the scoring against the run of play on a Colin Dougan penalty in the 13th minute.

But three minutes later the Bruins tied it and it was pretty much all Sheridan after that.

 Mohawk's Dougan was red carded about 10 minutes into the second half and the Mountaineers played a man short the rest of the way.

 Women’s softball 

London's Fanshawe Falcons came flying out of the gate, as they dominated the Mohawk Mountaineers 21-0 and 22-3 last Saturday.

The mercy rule was enforced in each game.

 Women’s rugby

 Mohawk was beaten 38-17 in an exhibition game last Saturday at Saltfleet high school by the Stoney Creek Rugby Club, but there were several positives for the Moutaineer squad.

 Newcomer Manon Clarke scored a pair of tries for Mohawk and rookie Hailey Sharpe, one of four players the Moutaineers loaned to their opponents for this game, scored for Stoney Creek.

 The other Mohawk try was a nice sniping run from a scrum by Mary Armstrong, the team's new captain.

 Rachel Trabucco converted one of the Mountaineers' tries.
