Cambrian ladies bounce back from first loss
2016-09-21
by Randy Pascal

The Cambrian Golden Shield women's soccer team got the attention of the powerhouse Algonquin Thunder last weekend. That might not have been such a great idea.

The Shield matched and exceeded an impressive opening weekend performance by the Thunder, outscoring their first two opponents 22-0, while Algonquin could "only" manage a fifteen goal differential in racking up their initial two victories of the year.

As luck would have it, the pair of OCAA offensive dynamos were scheduled to go head to head last Saturday in Sudbury. Unfortunately, the Thunder were intent on sending a message to the relative newcomers to the provincial podium party.

The visiting ladies bolted out to an impressive first half lead on goals from Vanessa MacMillan, with a pair, as well as Melissa Harrison and Andrianna Dmulchalsky, cruising through the final 45 minutes and posting a 4-0 shutout over Cambrian.

Down by four at the half, Cambrian coach Giuseppe Politi opted to rest many of his starters in anticipation of a key Sunday matchup with the St Lawrence (Kingston) Vikings. The strategy paid dividends, as Cambrian scored five times before the halftime whistle had sounded, sinking the Vikings 5-1.

Sarah Cholewinsky was front and center to the Golden Shield attack, burying a hat trick, with Tiffany Johnson adding her 11th and 12th goals of the season. Megan Simpson replied in a losing cause for St Lawrence.

The local ladies will head out on the road for the first time this year this coming weekend, taking their 3-1-0 record on the road to face the Fleming Knights (2-2-0) on Saturday, and the Durham Lords (1-3-0) on Sunday.

Cambrian thumped Fleming to the tune of 10-0 when the teams met in Sudbury to open the OCAA season on September 10th.
