The men’s soccer team continues to roll with a dominant performance over the Conestoga Condors at the Ontario Soccer Centre.

Jainiel Hollett tallied a pair of goals in 29th and 39th minutes, bringing his career total to 19 in the 4-0 victory.

Coach Michael Aquino says the sky could very well be the limit for the striker.

“He’s an excellent player who is extremely talented,” Aquino said. “He’s very professional in attitude and approach to the game. He is a top player in CCAA.”

All goals came in the first half on unassisted goals. Humber dominated possession and the defense stonewalled Conestoga, who only managed three shots on goal.

With the win, Humber’s undefeated streak was extended to an incredible 39 games. It is also the first game in a five-game home stand to round off the season before the OCAA provincials.

Aquino, however, is still stressing complacency as the season winds down to a close.

“The goals and objectives remain the same, just reminders to stay focused on the task at hand and to take things one game at time,” he said.

Humber maintains its number one ranking with the victory.

Goalkeeper Eugenio Garro maintained another clean sheet which was his third of the season. Overall, he’s allowed just one goal all year for a sparkling 0.40 Goals against average.

Aquino knows there is pressure that lies ahead continuing with this streak, and he knows the players sense the heat as well.

“Experience of returning players, and team chemistry and familiarity goes a long way to achieving success,” he said.

Next up after the Thanksgiving break is the George Brown Huskies on Oct. 11 at the Vaughan soccer pitch.
