MOHAWK KEEPS FIRST PLACE IN SIGHT IN WOMEN'S SOCCER

ANCASTER, Ont. - The Mohawk women's soccer team scored three first half goals, en route to a 3-0 win over Redeemer Royals in OCAA play on Wednesday, Oct. 11 at Redeemer Field.

Caitlin Laughlin scored in the sixth minute, Sarah Ongarato tallied three minutes later and Keigan Curran scored the game's final goal in the 37th minute.

Not only did the Mountaineers battle through cold, wet and windy conditions for the victory, they also learned that Niagara played a goalless draw with West Division leading Fanshawe, to keep first place up in the air. The Falcons have a record of 7-0-1, while Mohawk is 6-1-2. And the two teams meet in London on Saturday, Oct. 14.

Mountaineers' co-head coach Michael Castellani said with the three points they picked up against Redeemer, they've given themselves the potential of finishing first and getting a bye to the OCAA championship.

"The players are coming together as a team," said Castellani. "We got to play some other players tonight and I think we're in position to make our run."
