Mikhael Tony was Ontario's player of the match in the final.

Ryan Raposo earned the Canada Games Top Player award.

Ontario Goalkeeper Nicholas Frenati co-led the tournament with three clean sheets.

Ontario won the Canada Games Men's Soccer Tournament on the final day in front of 1,400 fans at the Ralph Cantafio Soccer Complex in Winnipeg.

Alberta had the first chance in the six minutes, but were just wide of the target.

Ontario had the next good chance with a low shot that trickled wide. Overall, Alberta out-chanced Ontario in the first half, with the best being a Stefan Gajic shot that was tipped off the crossbar by goalkeeper Frenati.

In the second half, Ontario slowly took over the match.

Max Weinberg fired a shot that was saved by Brennan Hebert. Both sides pressed, but neither defence was ready to surrender that all-important first goal.

Finally in the last minute, Mohsen took a free kick that beat the wall and beat the goalkeeper.

The Women's Team Ontario settled for silver last week after being edged 1-0 by Quebec.
