After disappointing losses in their previous two games, Mic Mac Toyota (6-3-1) scored five unanswered goals to beat Wintemute Electric 5-1 Wednesday in U11 soccer at the Canada Games Centre.

“(Mic Mac) got momentum,” said Drew Wintemute, coach of Wintemute (5-5-0). “They were dominating — that’s exactly what happened. They were beating us to the ball (and had) good passing and good shooting.”

Wintemute’s Hanna Milner opened the scoring 11 minutes in before Mic Mac’s Luka van Randen scored two quick goals a minute apart.

“Tonight they got a couple of goals early and just got really confident,” said Mic Mac coach Ed van Randen. “You could just see it, they were passing better, shooting better — getting those two quick goals at the beginning made the difference.”

Mic Mac’s Chloe Turner-Davis scored a third just before half. Brandon Cull, Mic Mac’s MVP, scored the fourth and Danika Avery added the final goal.

Wintemute’s MVP was Samantha Wintemute.

“She played all the positions well tonight,” said Wintemute.

Medicine Chest squeaks by Property Guys

With less than a minute to play, Medicine Chest’s Samuel Bonar ripped a short-range shot through the hands of the Property Guys’ goalkeeper’s hands, to break a 2-2 tie for the win.

Bonar’s goal was his team’s third straight, having suffered a pair of goals against early on, scored by Property’s MVP, Golia Cazon, and Etienne Geoffrey-Gagner.

“They were really pressing at the beginning of the game,” said Medicine coach Doug Hnatiuk. “We had to make some adjustments … We shored up on the defence a little bit.

“They were beating us in the centre, and then once we cleaned that up, we were able to take control of the game.”

Akshay Malhotra opened the scoring for Medicine, followed by Jenelle Vickerman.

Torgerson leads Physio Plus to victory

Scoring a total of four goals, Chris Torgerson led Physio Plus to a 5-2 win over Tim Horton’s. Fast out of the blocks, Torgerson found the bottom corner of the Horton’s net twice in the first five minutes of the game, before teammate Brett Nichol scored to make it 3-0.

“We had a strong start,” said Physio coach Charline Torgerson. “We just maintained a strong defence and took advantage of scoring opportunities.”

Horton’s goals were scored by Ben Wright and Alex Soin, who was also his team’s MVP.

Karen Qiu was named Physio’s MVP for her outstanding work on defence.

Dirkbuilt constructs

7-3 win

With a couple speedy goals early in the game, Dirkbuilt Construction took the lead and claimed ownership, as they went on to a 7-3 win over team Austring, Fendrick, Fairman & Parkkari.

“We were missing a couple players that were away tonight,” said Austring coach Ed Heynen. “That made a big difference in the performance of the team … We had a couple of pooped kids in the box there looking for extra oxygen because they were working so hard.”
