North Dundas teams add more points to Ottawa Carleton Soccer League totals

CHESTERVILLE – Strikes from three different shooters enabled the North Dundas Women’s Rec 3 (WR3) United to battle the OISC Untamed to a 3-3 draw and solidify their hold on second place in their division standings.

North Dundas’ record improved to 6-2-2 and upped their points total to 20, while the Ottawa Falcons (8-1-0) hold down first place (eight teams) with 24 points. It was the first point of the season for the winless Untamed (0-9-1).

United’s top striker, Tasha Huisman cracked her 11th goal in the 3-3 tie and in the process took over top spot in the WR3 scoring race. Kathy Peterson of the Nepean Hotspurs and the Falcons’ Sarah Ogilvie share second place with 10 goals.

North Dundas United coach Garth Elliott used a light-hearted approach in appealing to his Ottawa Carleton Soccer League team as he laid out his game plan prior to last Thursday’s (July 27) Women’s Rec 3 (WR3) match against the visiting OISC Untamed. Tasha Huisman, Julia Wouters and Karlyn Moore cracked goals for the number two-ranked North Dundas (6-2-2) side.

Julia Wouters netted her first goal of the season while and Karlyn Moore rang up number three. Jennifer Ware was United’s keeper. Ware has registered two shutouts and shares first place in that defensive category.

Tomorrow (Thurs., Aug. 3) United will meet the Carleton Place Shooters (5-5-2) at Beckwith Park. North Dundas’ final home game is set for the Chesterville pitch on Thurs., Aug. 10 when the Cumberland Cobras (6-3-1) will provide the opposition.

MR3 Sonics

The North Dundas Men’s Rec 3 (MR3) Sonics weren’t able to generate any offence, but still gained a point in a scoreless draw with the host Gloucester Celtic (4-3-1) last Wednesday (July 26).

Sonics’ keeper Vince Goulet registered his third perfect result and entered a four-way tie for second spot among shutout leaders. Alessandra Ferrante of the second-place Lynwood Lightning (7-1-1) has hung up five zeros while giving up a division-low four goals in nine games.

The third-place Sonics (6-1-2) are in Ottawa tonight (Wed., Aug. 2) to face the Falcons Boro. The club’s final home game at Mountain Memorial Park is slated for Wed., Aug. 9 when the Gloucester Hornets will visit.

OT5 still looking

The North Dundas OT5 United (0-7-1) absorbed another shutout (5-nil) loss, third consecutive, in last Friday’s (July 28) match against Saigon United Truong Sa (6-2-2).

Friday (Aug. 4) the Old Timers are at home in Chesterville where they will face the OISC Royals Blue (4-3-2).
