Bruins earn a tie and a shutout in Homecoming matchup


The Sheridan Bruins women’s and men’s soccer teams ended their Homecoming games with a tie and a win respectively.

The Lady Bruins (3-2-1 OCAA) had a tough time matching the Mohawk Mountaineers, and while ball possession was even, Mohawk took the lead in the last few minutes of the second half.

“I think we played about 12 minutes of good soccer and that produced one goal in the second half, and after that we went back to playing very sloppy, and giving away possession,” said head coach Paul Angelini.

“On the whole not a very good performance.”

The game remained tied for the rest of the second half, with Sheridan unable to capitalize on numerous chances in the Mohawk scoring zone, the final score being 1-1.

“We have to step our game up, be first to every ball. We have to leave everything on the field and we’re not doing that. Hopefully next game we can string something together and put some balls in the net,” said Samantha McLaren, No. 9.

The Bruins men’s team (5-0-1 OCAA), had more success, shutting the Mountaineers out 4-0.

“We did well. We kept possession, we dominated the game, we scored. That’s all I can ask from my team. A few more goals would have been great. We missed a few chances where we could have put it away, but we did well defensively and overall we played great,” said head coach Andrew Seuradge.

The Double-Blue scoring streak started when Nicholas Lindsay put one away in the first half, followed by two more in quick succession, completing his second hat trick of the season and bringing his season goal total to 11.

“It was a good game. It was a great team effort. I think everyone put in 100 per cent. We really got the job done and showed this league what were about,” said Lindsay, No.11, who is in his first year in the Social Services program.

“Without the team none of this would be possible. We just need to stay focused and win every ball and finish every opportunity.”

The Bruins added a fourth goal to the tally when Darragh Roe put the ball in the top corner after receiving a pass from Mathew Santos in the second half.

The Bruins next games were against Fanshawe  on Oct. 1, and Oct. 2.Chris_kickLindsay_run
