OTTAWA – Two of the three North Dundas United Soccer Club’s three Ottawa Carleton Soccer League sides have added to their point totals.
Last Wednesday (Aug. 2), the Men’s Rec 3 (MR3) Sonics nipped the host Falcons Boro 2-1 and the day after (Thurs., Aug. 3) the Women’s Rec 3 (WR3) battled the hometown Carleton Place Shooters to a scoreless draw.
The United’s tie marked the third perfect result for keeper Jen Ware, who took over top spot in that category, and improved their team record to 6-2-3, good enough for 21 points and second place (eight teams). The Falcons (8-1-0) top the standings with 24 points.
North Dundas will play its final home game in Chesterville tomorrow (Thurs., Aug. 10) when they will welcome the number-three ranked Cumberland Cobras (6-3-1) to the Chesterville Fairgrounds.

Fullback Jason Lombardo cracked his first goal of the season and Dylan Roberts buried his fifth as the MR3 Sonics edged the Falcons Boro 2-1 and upped their record to 7-1-2.
North Dundas has collected 23 points and holds down third place (10 teams). The Lynwood Lightning (9-1-1) leads with 28, one more than the White Eagles (9-2-0) who have 27 points.
Roberts’ fifth marker lifted him into a three-way tie for sixth place in the MR3 scoring race. Suma Kiruluta of the Lynwood Lightning has booted in a division-leading 11 goals. Roberts’ teammates Dave Mathers, Jason Catellier, Julian Whittam and Zachary Sloane all have cashed four goals.
This evening (Wed., Aug. 9), the Gloucester Hornets (2-6-2) will provide the opposition for the Sonics who will play their final game of the season at Mountain Memorial Park.
