League leaders conquered

The question on the lips of many FC London fans was how long would their winning streak in the Women’s Premier Division last for?

Finally, the runaway leaders who were five points ahead in the league with seven wins from seven games met their match against Simcoe County Rovers. The hosts led after 33 minutes and secured the victory with two late goals.

Another shock at the weekend saw Darby’s women win 7-3 against BVB IA Waterloo. The mid-table team had just two wins under their belt this season and scored more goals against the Roma Wolves than they had so far in the whole of 2022, Lauren Illman bagging a hat-trick on Friday night.

The Men’s Premier Division leaders North Toronto Nitros also tasted defeat for the first time this weekend, losing by a solitary goal at York Lions Stadium. The game was part of a doubleheader with the Canadian Premier League.

The Burlington men’s team won 4-1 against North Mississauga – opposition who were significantly higher in the table with three wins to Burlington’s one.

Closing the gap

Alliance United defeated St Catharines Roma Wolves on Friday to close the gap on Nitros at the top of the Men’s Premier Division to just one point. Simcoe County Rovers’ managed to stay among the leading pack by nulling Jonny Monney’s brace for BVB IA Waterloo.

Blue Devils secured victory against Guelph United to join Vaughan Azzurri as the league’s only undefeated teams, and a Miles Green hat-trick helped Hamilton United put five past Scrossopi.

The Azzurri won against Tecumseh in the Women’s Premier Division to stay second in the table and Woodbridge Strikers’ Colleen Beesley scored late to secure three points against Guelph Union and keep pressure on the top.

The only unbeaten team left in the women’s league are NDC Ontario after they scored two against Burlington and built on their incredible 8-0 victory against Hamilton United midweek. North Toronto Nitros are right behind the Canada Soccer side after a 2-0 win of their own against St Catharines Roma Wolves courtesy of a Kiyomi McCausland brace.
