Gillons’ leads womens soccer pack

After a slew of cancellations due to player shortages and Mother Nature, both local men’s and women’s soccer leagues are getting things back on track.
A heartening sign was all scheduled games were completed last week—the first time that’s happened since the season began earlier this month.
Entering this week’s play (as of Monday), Gillons’ was atop the women’s standings with a 4-0-1 record.
Of reported games, Gillons’ captain Laureen Cousineau has scored the bulk of the goals for her team, pacing the scoring leaderboard with seven.
Curves for Women, next at 2-0-1, sports a balanced attack. Rebecca Cornell is second in league scoring with four goals, just ahead of teammates Lindsay Roy (three), and Tara Hoard, Sarah Noonan, and Mandy Wilson (two each).
Jodi Hyatt (Tagg’s) also has two goals, but her team is tied for last with defending champion MEC at 0-3.
In men’s action, the U-19 team went 2-0 last week, edging ITS 2-1 and blanking Tagg’s 4-0 to lead the standings with a 2-1 record.
Tagg’s is next at 2-2-1, followed by Nova (1-1-1) and ITS (1-1).
Of reported games, Steve Keesic (Nova) leads the league in goals with five, followed by the Tagg’s duo of Olaf and Thor Ruppenstein (four apiece).
A logjam of players have two goals each—Jeremy Wilson, Chris Plett, Jamie Algie, Dan Poper-echny, and Adam McTavish (U-19), Joel McCoy (ITS), and Brendan Hyatt (Tagg’s).
