OSU Force defeated FC Oshawa 3-0 in Oshawa on Saturday with the help of a hat-trick from OSU forward Marion Taiwo (18', 29', 53').

The match started with OSU attempting intricate passing combinations in hopes of passing their way through Oshawa's defence. 

The game broke open in the 18th minute as Taiwo got her first goal of the match via a clever through ball by Beaudoin, proceeding to slot home a right-footed finish.

Ottawa would take control of the game with the help of midfielder Shannon Phee, who dominated the midfield and created plenty of scoring chances.

Marion Taiwo scored her second of the match in the 29th minute with a carefully placed left-footed strike outside the reach of the keeper.

The Force continued their dominance in the second half as Taiwo would complete her
hat-trick with yet another composed finish in the 53 rd minute.

Throughout the second half, OSU midfielder Chadwick created a few scoring opportunities for her team via clever displays of skill and footwork. One notable opportunity was in the 67th minute as she set up Taiwo but the striker was denied her fourth goal by a brilliant save from FC Oshawa keeper Sarah Forde.

FC Oshawa will next play Alliance United FC on June 8 (7 p.m.) at Civic Centre, Oshawa.

OSU Force will next play Oakville Blue Devils on June 8 (1:30 p.m.) at Quinn's Pointe, Ottawa.

In Matchweek 5, Vaughan Azzurri remains as the only undefeated team after they beat DeRo United FC 2-1 Saturday afternoon at L’Amoreaux.

Vaughan dominated the ball to start the game but was unable to capitalize on their opportunities and continued to trade possession with DeRo United FC.

DeRo took advantage of their first scoring opportunity when Meghan McKye (29') dribbled the ball inside and laid it low to the right to open up the scoring.

A late first-half surge was the difference maker as Vaughan converted two goals to put them ahead.

Kiyani Johnson (37') scored her team-leading fifth goal as she got onto her right foot inside the box and squared up the match.

As the first half dwindled down Vaughan remained relentless to press and Jessie Faber (44') slipped one past the keeper for the deciding goal.

Vaughan Azzurri will next play Hamilton United Elite on June 8 (noon) at McNaughton Turf Field, Vaughan.

DeRo United FC will next play FC London on June 8 (4:30 p.m.) at L’Amoreaux

Alliance United FC met Aurora FC in Matchweek 5 looking to keep their winning streak alive, which they managed to achieve after Andrus (63') scored the lone goal of the game.

Aurora came into this game to improve their standings and record by putting their first win on the record.

Despite not having much of the ball in the opening quarter of the game, Alliance made sure to create opportunities. But at the beginning of the second half, Alliance implemented a high press from their strikers and midfielders that quickly created even more scoring opportunities.

The lone goal of the game was scored by Alliance's Andrus (63') after some beautiful passing sequences by her teammates. Andrus found herself on the right side of the net just inside the penalty area, firing across Aurora goalkeeper Phillips and into the bottom left of the goal.

Aurora FC will next play Durham United FA at Kinsmen Park, Pickering on June 9 (2 p.m.).

Alliance United FC will next play FC Oshawa at Civic Stadium, Oshawa on June 8 (7 p.m.).
