MEN’S SOCCER LOCK UP CENTRAL DIVISION'S SECOND SEED WITH 3-1 WIN OVER BRUINS

065

George Brown men’s soccer assured themselves the central division’s second seed on Friday night with a 3-1 win over Sheridan.

 

Osman Hussein scored his third and fourth goals of the season less than fifteen minutes into the action on a pair of pretty finishes, giving the Huskies early momentum. But for a fifteen-minute stretch prior to the half, George Brown controlled play all night.

 

"Overall we were solid for nearly ninety minutes, from the back to the front," said head coach John Williams. "When we are compact at the back we are such a tough team to play against, and that's what we were for the majority of the game."

 

Tory Dryden put it away in the 73rd minute thanks to a great second effort. After a perfect cross from Shaquille Agard, Dryden looked to have an easy chip in but for a beautiful diving save from Sheridan’s keeper. Despite the great effort, he was unable to corral the ball and Dryden got a second touch that he made no mistake on in sealing the deal.

 

"Our guys know that the key for us is to stay disciplined," added Williams. "Yesterday was a great day for us, we had a video session and guys were really locked in. I feel really good about where we are as a team."

 

The Huskies are now guaranteed to host a crossover playoff game next weekend against the western division’s fourth seed. The winner will qualify for the OCAA Championship.

 

The women’s team dropped to 1-8 on the season after a 4-1 loss to the Bruins. The Huskies played a strong opening half, with Julia Kassner converting on a penalty shot and the Bruins holding a narrow 2-1 lead after 45 minutes.

 

Unfortunately for George Brown, they were unable to carry the momentum into the second half as Sheridan controlled play for the remainder of the game. 

 

The Huskies close the regular season with a visit to the UTM Eagles. The women play on Tuesday, men on Wednesday.
