Men's soccer goes unbeaten to claim regional group

NORTH YORK, Ont. - The Sheridan Bruins men's soccer team (15-3-3, 2-0-1 OCAA) will head to the OCAA Indoor Soccer Championship in a little under two weeks as the winners of Group E, defeating Mohawk and Canadore before closing out the day with a draw against Durham.

"I thought we played well today," head coach Andrew Seuradge said. "We got leads in those first two games pretty early and that allowed us to relax and play our game."

Against Mohawk in their opener, the Bruins scored just two minutes into the game before doubling up their advantage 15 minutes from time. Although Mohawk quickly pulled one back, Sheridan was able to hold on for the 2-1 win.

The Double Blue scored four times in the first half against Canadore, on their way to a 6-1 triumph, with the large scoring output playing a key role in the Bruins finishing first. 

After drawing Durham 2-2, the two sides had equal 2-0-1 records, but Sheridan would claim the group with a goal differential of plus-six, while the Lords were plus-four.

The addition of Sheridan and Durham completes the 10-team field for the OCAA Championship, with George Brown, Conestoga, Humber, Seneca, Redeemer, St. Clair, UTM, and Fanshawe having clinched their spots earlier in the week.

The teams will be drawn into two five-team groups, with championship play opening on March 22.
