Tie For Grey Motors United

Downsview | by Bayshore News Staff  

Skene Brothers Score For Owen Sound


Two goals from the Skene brothers would be all Owen Sound Grey Motors United would need to secure their first point on the road Friday night in a 2-2 tie against Toronto's Rest of the World FC in Ontario Soccer League action at Downsview Park.

Toronto opened the scoring 20 minutes into the game with a goal from Striker Jide Fatoba from approximately 15 yards out.

United tied the game up at the 35 minute mark when Quinn Skene got his second goal of the season when he stole the ball off a Toronto defender and quickly fired a shot past an outstretched Devon Holder.

The game remained deadlocked until midway into the second half when Fatoba received a pass in behind the United defence and dribbled the ball around keeper Adam Walton for his second goal of the game.

United kept applying pressure and were rewarded with 5 minutes left in the game when centre midfielder Oliver Clark blasted a shot that Holder couldn't hang on to and Brady Skene slotted home the rebound for his first goal of the season.

The tie proved costly for United as Co-Captain Drake Hall left the game with a broken wrist that will require surgery later this week. He is likely out for the remainder of the season.

Grey Motors United are on the road again for their next game, when they visit Vaughn's Veneto Lions Sunday at 9pm.

"To get a tie on the road against a top team from Toronto is a solid result for us", said United General Manager Jim McManaman. "Losing a player of Drake's calibre is a tough blow, but the rest of the team will need to raise their game. And the next game is a big one for us too, as we're tied with Veneto in the standings and there is only 2 points separating 4 different teams."

United's next home game is Friday August 14th when they host Barrie City. Game time at the Kiwanis Soccer Complex is 8:30pm.
