Hamilton United Elite crushed North Mississauga SC 9-0, featuring Emma Davie's four goal haul (21', 23', 36', 38') and a hat-trick of assists from Lauren DiPietro.

The first half was all one-way traffic with the game finished off before the break as the visitors scored eight goals.

It took just eight minutes to break the deadlock, as Jorden Campbell (8') tapped in Lauren DiPietro's cross from the right side.

Hamilton then scored three goals in the space of four minutes - first, DiPietro (20') beat the keeper in a one-on-one situation and then Davies (21', 23') twice found the net with shots from inside the box.

Angela Cutaia (34') put her name on the score-sheet after a low pass from Di Pietro.

Two minutes later, DiPietro provided another assist and Davies (36') completed her hat-trick with a header from the middle of the box; remarkably, just two minutes later Davies (38') scored in a one-on-one situation with the keeper to make it four on the day.

With practically the last kick of the first half, Cara Cutaia (45') sent the ball into the back of the net with a beautiful finish from inside the box on Angela Cutaia's short pass.

After the restart, Hamilton United Elite seemed happy with the result, trying to manage the game, letting North Mississauga SC come forward and play but not create chances.

Hamilton scored a goal very similar to the eighth and the only difference was Cara Cutaia would provide the assist and Angela Cutaia (82') finished. Campbell (90') then found the net from inside the box to seal a win for her side by double digits.

North Mississauga SC will next play FC London on July 14 (2 p.m.) at German Canadian FC Stadium Field, London.

Darby FC women’s team beat FC Oshawa 3-2 at Clarington Soccer Fields, Oshawa on Matchweek 10.

Right off the bat, Darby began to assert themselves and scored their first goal of the evening very early on.

Hopkins (5') finished her first goal of the 2019 season, beating the Oshawa goalie in a one v one and placing the ball in the bottom left corner.

Hopkins (14') didn't waste time getting her second goal of the game either, neatly finishing inside the left post.

After a long delay due to a thunderstorm, the match was restarted and the first half finished without any event.

FC Oshawa came out the stronger of the two sides in the second half, clearly hungry for a goal. On the hour mark, a great corner kick was served right into the six yard box and found the head of De Jong (60'), who glanced it into the far left corner.

Twohey (84') found the crucial third goal for Darby, receiving a great through ball and putting the ball over top of the FC Oshawa goalie and into the back of the net for a 3-1 lead.

Moments later FC Oshawa put their second goal in the back of the net, trying to launch a comeback. Wilson (85') received a great cross and put it low in the far right corner, but it was the last marker Oshawa could find. 

Darby FC will next play De Ro United FC on July 13 (4:30 p.m.) at L'Amoreaux Sports Centre, Toronto.

FC Oshawa will next play Vaughan Azzurri on July 14 (4 p.m.) at North Maple Regional Park Turf, Vaughan.

After a very tough game between Ottawa South United and Vaughan SC, the final score ended in a narrow 1-0 victory for visitors' Vaughan.

With a very late goal in the first half, Vaughan took the lead off the foot of Faber (45'). OSU came back strong at the beginning of the second half with an early free kick right outside the 18-yard box, hitting the crossbar. They continued to fight looking for the equalizer.

In the 77th minute, Vaughan started breaking down the home side as OSU began to show signs of fatigue. Vaughan hit the cross bar three more consecutive times but could not build on their lead.

OSU will next play Hamilton United Elite on July 13 (2:30 p.m.) at Sherwood Park, Hamilton.

Vaughan Azzurri will next play FC Oshawa on July 14 (4 p.m.) at North Maple Regional Park Turf, Vaughan.

Alliance United FC's Laura Gosse scored an early goal that was cancelled out by De Ro United FC's Nicola Golen as both sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

It just took less than 60 seconds to break the deadlock, as Laura Gosse's (1') low shot from the edge of the box nestled in the left bottom corner to give a very early lead to Alliance United FC.

Alliance United FC had a slight edge over De Ro United FC in the first half but De Ro got back on level terms with their first genuine attempt. Chantelle Parker ran down the right and her long cross found Nicola Golen (36') at the back stick for a precise finish from close range.

In the second half, the host had more of the possession but failed to create any real goal scoring chance; on the other hand, Alliance had two big opportunities to restore the lead but couldn't take them.

Alliance keeper Alyse Patinios was at full stretch in the 53rd minute to parry away Meghan Reynolds's strike from six yards for a corner. In the 73rd minute, Gosse rolled a nice ball across the open face of the net for Katrina Giantopolous, who slid in at the far post but hit the wrong side of the net from point-blank range.

De Ro United FC will next play Darby FC on July 13 (4:30 p.m) at L'Amoreaux #1, Toronto.

Natasha Klasios' late strike secured Unionville Milliken SC all three points on the road against Aurora FC on Matchweek 10.

Much of the match was played in the middle third of the pitch, with Aurora holding more possession in the second half, but Unionville had two notable chances: Sage Prince and Klasios each had breakaways on separate occasions but were denied by Aurora goalkeeper, Jaysharee Pathak, who did well to come off her line and make the diving saves.

A late game winner arrived when Valentina Khan slotted through Klasios (82'). Klasios turned, beat her defender, and unleashed a right foot strike from just outside the 18-yard box.

A young, talented Aurora side fought tirelessly all match, getting stuck into tackles, moving the ball around the pitch well, but ultimately couldn't execute in the final third and struggled to get shots on target.

Aurora FC will next play Woodbridge Strikers on July 14 (1:45 p.m.) at Vaughan Grove 1, Woodbridge. 

Unionville Milliken SC will next play Oakville Blue Devils on July 14 (4 p.m.) at Sheridan College, Trafalgar Campus, Oakville.
