Mountaineers Varsity Highlights - September 23, 2022
The Mohawk Mountaineers women’s soccer team made a big statement this past week that has put the OCAA on full alert.
On Wednesday night, the Mountaineers travelled to play the Humber Hawks, the fourth-ranked team in the country. After falling behind 1-0 only five minutes into the match, the Mountaineers continued to battle and eventually tied the match 1-1 in the 86th minute, thanks to first-year Alyssa Glasbergen.
The eventual tie meant Mohawk have received a point in all four games so far this season and hold a 1-0-3 record.
The men’s soccer team struggled against the Hawks, who came into the match ranked first in the nation. The Mountaineers lost 7-0.
Women’s softball also had a tough week losing all four of their games.
