Something had to give.
The men’s side of Aurora FC broke a six-game winning streak on Saturday when they earned their second win of the season, a 2 – 0 shutout of ProStars FC of Brampton.
Despite the ProStars continuing to search for the first win of the season, the first
seventy-five minutes of the match was a stalemate. Aurora put pressure on the ProStars defense throughout the first half, though both teams went to the break without a shot on goal.
It was Jared Agyemang that opened the scoring with just fifteen minutes to go in regulation time, his third of the season, taking advantage of a mistake by the goalkeeper that sent him the other way.
Karamvir Mehmi scored in stoppage time, sneaking one in from close range, in his season debut after just eight minutes on the field.
Adam Scanlon and Alexander Jakma split the time in goal to earn Aurora its first clean sheet of the 2017 season.
The win is just the first step in a long journey to climb up the League
1 Ontario rankings, still ten points back of the sixth place Master’s Futbol while sitting in seventh with a record of 2-11-1.
They sit seven points up on the winless Toronto Skillz FC.
Back in action on Saturday at St. Maximilian Kolbe field, the men will be in tough when they host the 12-2-0 Oakville Blue Devils in a cross-division match, the leaders of the West division.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Following a week’s break in the schedule, the women’s side will look to stay hot on Sunday against the 5-6-2 Woodbridge Strikers on the road.
A two-game winning streak has helped the women jump two spots in the League 1 rankings into a logjam at seventh-place, with just four points separating fourth from eighth.
They don’t return home until September 9 when they host Durham United FA at St. Maximilian Kolbe field.
