A GOOD START – Late goal powers Bruins past Fanshawe in season opener (Men’s Soccer)

There were more than a few white-knuckle moments along the way but the Sheridan Bruins men’s soccer team opened their 2009 OCAA season the right way, earning a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Fanshawe. 

Jordan Messam found the back of the net in the 83rd minute for the game’s lone goal and head coach Tony Silvestri said it was a tale of two halves for his club, especially in the attacking third. 

“We started off a lot slower than we hoped for and expected. Defensively we were fairly strong throughout the whole game, but in the first half our midfield and strikers seemed to be scrambling a bit,” he said. “We definitely came out with some fire in the second half and started playing some better soccer and were rewarded with the result.” Read the rest of the story here.

OUT OF TIME – Bruin rally falls short in season debut (Women’s Soccer)

After a scoreless first half where they failed to convert several scoring opportunities, the Sheridan Bruins women’s soccer team knew they would be in tough during the final 45 minutes of their OCAA opener. After falling behind 2-0 they began their best offensive charge of the day but ultimately came up short, falling 2-1 to Fanshawe. 

“It was a very good game for the first game of the season,” head coach Paul Angelini said. “I think we played well enough, I think the final score flattered the other team with the number of times we were in behind the defence and, once again, as I always say soccer is not about the number of chances you generate, it’s about how many chances you put away. They had two – they scored two, we had eight – we scored one and we lost the game.” Read the rest of the story here.
