Tough games against tough opponents equals a tough time for the Centennial Colts as both, the Men’s and Women’s teams came up short in getting much needed wins.

In the first ever home soccer game played on a Centennial College campus, the Colts women’s soccer team suffered a 4-0 loss to the Durham Lords.
Although nearly scoring twice in the opening ten minutes, the Lady Colts were held scoreless in the rainy Oct. 2 match-up.
The loss comes after a 0-0 tie against La Cité on Sept. 28 and a 2-1 loss to rival Algonquin on Sept. 29. The Lady Colts now go into their final game of the season with a record of 2-4-1.
The Colts next game will come against Loyalist College, who sit just below Centennial in the OCAA east standings.
The Centennial Colts men’s soccer team are almost a lock to make the OCAA playoffs following a 1-1 tie with the Durham Lords.
The Colts were first on the board during the Oct. 2 match-up, when defender Orlando Forbes scored to make it 1-0. Durham struck back in penalty time, evening the score at 1-1 with a goal from Durham’s Marco Trotta.
The tie brings the Colts record to 4-2-1, good enough to tie them for third with Cambrian in the OCAA east standings. The Colts can take lone possession of third place with a win or tie in their final game, as Cambrian has already finished their season.
The Colts have not been to the playoffs in six years, but expectations are high after a strong regular season that included dominant wins over Seneca, St. Lawrence and La Cité.
The Colts will take on last place George Brown in their final game this year.
The women’s soccer team play next against Loyalist College, while the men’s team takes on George Brown.
