Sharks soccer teams wrap up season at Peterborough regionals
The St. Lawrence College Sharks soccer teams wrapped up their seasons at the eastern regionals in Peterborough on Saturday.

Cornwall - Mar. 15, 2011 - The St. Lawrence College Sharks men's and women's indoor soccer teams saw their seasons draw to a close at the eastern regionals in Peterborough.

The women's team narrowly missed qualifying for its second-straight OCAA Championship, playing to a 1-1-1 record at the recent OCAA East Regional.

The Sharks fell to Fleming-P in the first match, before tying SLC Kingston in the second game. SLC Cornwall earned its win in the final contest defeating SLC Brockville.

On Friday, the Sharks opened up against last year's frontrunner, Fleming-P, and suffered a 2-0 setback to the Knights. Early Saturday morning, the Sharks played SLC Kingston and finished in a 0-0 draw with the Vikings. With SLC Kingston slightly ahead in a tiebreaker scenario, the Sharks needed several goals to get back in the race and the offence really stepped up to the challenge against inter-campus rival SLC Brockville. Casey Atwell started the scoring at the 16:04 mark and before the final whistle, Atwell added three more goals for a game-high four. Sarah Tyrell scored three and Kayla Laframboise netted the eighth goal for the Sharks.

With one game remaining, SLC Kingston needed either a tie or a win against Fleming-P to advance and pulled out the 0-0 tie to advance, knocking the Sharks into third place and out of the OCAA Championship.

The SLC Cornwall women's team finished with a 4-5-2 overall record indoors.

Meanwhile, the men's indoor soccer team also competed at the OCAA East Regional, which wrapped up Saturday afternoon at the Spiplex in Peterborough.

The Sharks finished with a 0-0-3 record.

SLC Cornwall began with Fleming-P, the 2010 OCAA Silver medalists, and finished two goals down after 40 minutes of play after playing even with the Knights for most of the game until late in the second half.

Against SLC Kingston, the Sharks went down 2-0 after the first half, but Richard Asante scored the first goal of the tournament for SLC Cornwall after stepping up to a free kick just outside the Vikings box and buried it inside the left post to pull back to within one at 2-1. The Vikings would score two more goals before time expired to hand the Sharks their second loss of the tournament.

Against SLC Brockville, the Schooners went ahead 1-0 at 17:56, but Asante used 44 seconds to even the score at 1-1 speeding past a Schooner defender and hitting a rocket past the SLC Brockville goalkeeper. The Schooners went up 3-1 before the Sharks made it 3-2 on another goal from Asante. The Schooners pulled back ahead by two with 2:57 remaining in the game to come away with the win. The Sharks were playing two men short after Paul Crooke and Aaron Villeneuve had to sit out due to injury.

The Sharks finished 1-8 overall this season.
