Four teams are left standing after this past weekend’s quarterfinal games that took place across the Province. Algonquin, Fanshawe, George Brown and Seneca are set to compete at the OCAA Men’s Soccer Championship, hosted by Algonquin College from October 26-27, 2007.


Seneca defeated Sheridan 2-1
At the beginning of the week, the Seneca Sting did not even know if they would they would be a part of the post-season but after a win over the Centennial Colts in their regular season finale and a Fleming loss, the Sting were set to travel to Oakville to face the Sheridan Bruins (West Region regular season champions). Behind goals from Marcus Reiner and Rickey Harris, the Sting upset the Bruins 2-1, sending the hometown crowd home disappointed. Pedro Figuroa recorded the lone goal for Sheridan. The Bruins headed into their match against Seneca on a hot streak winning their past six matches. Seneca will now play George Brown on Friday at 5:00pm.

George Brown defeated Mohawk 2-0
The George Brown Huskies shutout the Mohawk Mountaineers 2-0 to advance to their second consecutive OCAA Championship. The Huskies got out to a quick start scoring the opening goal in the third minute on a low drive that hit the back of the net. George Brown was the dominant team in the opening half as the Mountaineers had trouble adjusting to the artificial turf. Chris Tournidis, the Mohawk goalkeeper, made some outstanding saves in the first half to keep his team in the contest, especially in the 18th minute when he had to make a full stretch diving stop. The second half featured chances by both sides, but both keepers game up with big saves. In the 86th minute, George Brown netted their second goal of the game, securing their birth in the Championship. Huskies goalkeeper Colin Mercier recorded the clean sheet, while Noel Ellerton and Camilo Moreno record the goals. The Huskies will match up against the Seneca Sting. The two teams played to a 1-1 draw early in the regular season.

Algonquin defeated Humber 5-0
The Algonquin Thunder will look to win their fourth consecutive OCAA Championship on home turf this weekend as they advanced to the OCAA Championship with a convincing 5-0 qualifying win over Humber on the weekend. The Thunder did not let their regular season finale loss to George Brown slow them down, as they came out firing and blanking the Hawks. Will Beauge and Michael Tjarera netted a pair of goals apiece for the Thunder, while Tyler Farrell-Rose scored the other. The two teams got chippy midway through game with six cautions and three red cards being handed out by the official. The Thunder will play the Fanshawe Falcons under the lights in the semi-finals at 8:00 pm.

Fanshawe defeated Durham 1-0
