St. Clair Women Saints Soccer Win OCAA Consolation Championship
The St. Clair College women’s soccer team ended their season on a positive note on Saturday morning in Sudbury.
The Saints defeated the Mohawk Mountaineers 1-0 in the Consolation Final at the OCAA Championship being hosted by Cambrian College in Sudbury.
Julia Albeartie (Belle River) got the lone goal for St. Clair in the 52nd minute. Andie Albert (Melbourne) earned the win and clean sheet in goal. Albert was named the Saints Player of the Game.
The Saints ended their regular season with a record of 7-2-1 which was good for 2nd place in the OCAA West Division. St. Clair’s playoff record was 3-1 with the only loss coming to the Humber Hawks by a score of 1-0 in the OCAA quarterfinal match. Humber ended up winning the silver medals after losing 2-1 to Algonquin on Saturday afternoon.
The future looks bright for a young St. Clair squad. The roster of 18 featured 11 first year players and 5 second year players. The Saints were by far the youngest and least experienced of the 8 teams that qualified for the OCAA Championship.
