Guelph Union

Union completes unbeaten run through inaugural season

GUELPH – A pair of goals in the first half powered Guelph Union to a 2-0 victory over Vaughan Azzurri B in League1 Ontario Women’s Championship soccer play at Alumni Stadium Sunday.

The game was delayed by lightning in the second half.

Laura Marrelli in the fourth minute and Sami Falkenstein in the 36th minute accounted for the goals.

Brooke Davidson picked up the shutout.

Union won all six of their games in the COVID-shortened season, their first in L1O, and they outscored their opponents by a total of 17-1.

No other team in the seven-team league won more than three games or lost less than two.

At least nine players scored at least one goal for Union during the season with Victoria Hinchliffe and Kate Knafelc getting three apiece, Dani Sauve and Falkenstein two each and Sayan Ladhani, Olivia Brown, Cloey Uddenberg, Sydney Vanderhoef and Marrelli netting one apiece. Scorers in a 2-0 win over Oakville Blue Devils B Aug. 1 were not reported.

The goaltending chores during the season were split evenly between Davidson and Santana Ferreira.
