Fleming College Is National Bound In Cross Country

Frances Emery of the Fleming Knights cross country team qualifies for the CCAA National Championship in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

Peterborough, ON November 6, 2019 – The Fleming Knights Cross Country team qualifies for the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) National Championship meet in Grande Prairie, Alberta after Frances Emery finishes 11th place overall at the OCAA Provincial Championship meet in the women’s six kilometer race.

Frances will be competing on behalf of the Fleming Knights, Fleming College, and as a competitor from the OCAA on November 8 and 9. The CCAA National Championship in Grand Prairie, Albert will pit Frances against all of the top female runners from across the country.

As a first year athlete on the Fleming Knights cross country team, Frances is only in her second year competing in cross country running. Her first year was in her grade 12 year at high school. Being Frances’s fourth race as a Fleming Knight, she did extremely well to run her race in 24:32, just a mere 46 seconds off the first place race time, and at a Provincial Championship no less.

Not only has Frances had success at the Provincial meet, Frances has had a successful season at the invitational meets. An example of this success was Frances placing fourth overall at the Centennial meet with a time of 25:58.

“Frances is an incredible athlete to coach. She is extremely talented and determined to improve, constantly pushing her limits. Frances also brings an energy to the team which motivates others, strengthening the team dynamic,” said Knights’ head coach Andy Hein. “I’m excited to see her take on the course at CCAA’s. With a cross country skiing background I believe the elements will work in her favor.”

“I am still in shock that I am off to nationals next week. Knowing that around this time last year, I was just starting my running career. I am extremely thankful and happy for the opportunity to wear the Fleming jersey and compete at such a high level with such great quality of runners,” says Frances. “I am also looking forward to the atmosphere and getting to make my friends and family proud.”

OCAA Men’s Soccer Provincial Championship All Wrapped Up


PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – The Humber Hawks won gold for the second year in a row at the OCAA Men’s Soccer Championship.

In the finals, the Hawks defeated the Fanshawe Falcons in the final match of the OCAA provincial championship at Fleming College in Peterborough, Ont.

The Falcons and the Hawks began their match in a fierce battle as two of the top teams in the championship should. Both teams appeared evenly matched as each team fought diligently to gain possession of the ball and to retain possession. The first half of the match was a heavily back and forth game with each team having few scoring attempts.

Within minutes of the second half, Leaford Allen of the Hawks scored the first goal of the match allowing Humber to establish a lead. The Hawks played a strong and more aggressive second half taking more shots on Fanshawe net than in the prior half. In the final 10 minutes of play the Hawks accelerated their lead after Max Ferreri and Alex Baez scored on the Falcons net.

This was the finishing blow to the Falcons as the Hawks were able to hold onto their 3-0 lead winning the match and the championship.

 Goalkeeper Nick Frenati of the Hawks was named Player of the Game along with Bradley Heath, defender for the Falcons.

Being named Championship MVP was Nicolas Machado of Humber. Championship All-Stars from the Hawks were Frenati and Cody Green. Championship All-Stars from the Falcons were Tomas Alvarez and Bradley Heath.

The Seneca Sting earned the OCAA bronze medal after defeating Sheridan Bruins 5-1 after falling to the Humber Hawks in the semifinals.

The Sting had a strong game over the Bruins in a fight for bronze at the OCAA men’s soccer provincial championship. Ariel Muhaza-Kabongo and Marcus McGlynn both scored two goals for the Sting. 

The Bruins, although a formidable opponent, did not appear as strong as they were in the semifinals.

With Daniel Pereira scoring off a penalty kick, the Bruins showed that they were still in the match until the end. Despite scoring this goal, the Bruins fell to the Sting, but not before Isaiah Greaves would score another goal for the Sting, ending the match 5-1.

Player of the game was McGlynn of the Sting and Anthony Wright of the Bruins. Anthony Gurrieri of Seneca and Spencer Barber of Sheridan were named Championship All-Stars.

The semifinals raced to a start with the Humber Hawks facing the Seneca Sting.

Game 5 of the OCAA Men’s Soccer Championship brought a stiff competition with the Hawks and the Sting battling for possession. This stalemate was broken with Seneca scoring the first goal of the day. Scoring for the Sting was Cale Loughrey.

Humber quickly retaliated to Seneca’s lead exerting more pressure against the Sting. This allowed the Hawks to earn two goals and in doing so stealing the lead from the Sting. Leaford Allen tied up the match for the Hawks and Max Ferrari scoring the goal that put Humber in the lead. From this, the Hawks held strong to their advantage against the Sting and were able to win the match.

The player of the games in the match were Ferrari for Humber and Anthony Gurrueri for Seneca. The Hawks will move on to face off against the Fanshawe Falcons in Saturday’s gold medal match.

The Falcons were victorious over the Sheridan Bruins after a gritty match. The Bruins appeared to be the stronger team in the first half, holding onto possession of the ball and making some key goal attempts on the Falcons.

The turning point came for the Falcons in the second half following a stalemate for the entirety of the first half. Jonathan Kam and Malachi Morris were able to gain traction and able to breach the Bruins defence scoring for the Flacons.

The Falcons built on this momentum holding onto the lead in a match and securing their spot in the gold medal match on Saturday against the Humber Hawks.

The player of the games in the match were Jevontae Layne for Sheridan and Tomas Alvares for Fanshawe. 

The bronze medal match will feature the Seneca Sting and the Sheridan Bruins, which is set to gets underway at 12 p.m. The gold medal match kicks off at 3 p.m. featuring the Hawks and the Falcons.

First Day of Play Complete At OCAA Men’s Soccer Championship


October 23, 2019

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – Day 1 of the 2019 OCAA Men’s Soccer Championship has concluded, hosted by Fleming College in Peterborough, Ont.

The day brought eight of the top teams in Ontario battling in sudden death quarter-finals for the chance to advance to Friday’s semifinals matches.

The Humber Hawks defeated the East champion Algonquin Thunder 1-0. In a pretty evenly-matched game, the game held a stalemate at 0-0 for much of the match. In the 72nd minute of play this stalemate was broken with Cody Green of the Humber Hawks penetrating the Algonquin Thunder’s net on a penalty kick.

The player of the games in the match was Alexander Howe for Humber and Colin Gibson for Algonquin.

The Hawks will face off against the Seneca Sting in Friday’s first semifinal match. The Sting had a tough battle in the first half against the UTM Eagles. The Sting established a narrow lead moments before half the game’s half, which the Sting furthered as they dominated the second half. The end result was a 6-2 win.

The player of the games in the match were Anthony Gurrieri for Seneca and Mohammad Golmakani for UTM. Golmakani scored both of UTM’s goals in the match.

The third quarter-final match brought together Sheridan Bruins from the West, and Durham Lords from the East. Despite holding possession for much of the game, the Durham Lords eventually fell short to the Bruins despite the Bruins playing down a man. Both goals against the Lords were scored in the final 15 minutes of the match, allowing the Bruins access to Day 2 of the championship. After the Bruins 2-0 win, they will now face off against the powerhouse from the West, the Fanshawe Falcons.

The player of the games in the match were Chidibere Nnolim of Sheridan and Aiden Donaldson of Durham.

The final match of the quarter-finals brought the West division champion Fanshawe Falcons against the championship host Fleming Knights. With a busy first half, the Falcons made quick work over the Knights solidifying a three-goal lead. The Knights, however, stepped up their game in the second half playing both a stronger defence and offence against the powerful Falcons. In the end the Knights fell short to the Falcons 3-0.

The player of the games in the match were Josh Herter of Fleming and Dominic Szyszka of Fanshawe.
