(WINDSOR, ON) – The St Clair Saints men’s soccer team stretched their winning streak to four games by defeating the Conestoga Condors 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at the Main Campus Field.

Jordan Lidia got things started early, scoring in the 2nd minute on a great cross from Yale Chadsey. Conestoga responded shortly after in the 9th minute after a mad scramble in the goal area.

The Saints went up 2-1 in the 26th minute on a nice strike by Chadsey. Then St Clair put the game away when Lidia scored a penalty kick in the 61st minute, after being taken down in the box.

With the two goals Lidia now has a total of 10 in just 6 matches to lead the OCAA.
