FINAL Score  Montreal Impact 4  good for 9 points
             Toronto Blizzard 3 good for 3 points

Montreal had the momentum working their way in the 2nd half
Hilights 1. Dasovic gets three assists on fantastic runs down wing
followed by great centering passes
Hilights 2. The return of Argentine Amadeo Gasparini.  He's played for
North York Rockets and Hamilton Steelers of the old CSL league about
three years ago.  That's one of my greatest memories of the league.
When Hamilton won the Eastern final and Amadeo grabbed the trophy to
give it a kiss and it fell apart on him (hahaha).  He doesn't look the
same.  No more long hair, it now looks twotone.

 TV broadcast of this game will be on Rogers Cable Channel 10 4pm on
Saturday July 10th.

Attendance ooh unannounced.  Looked like only 900.  (Never said what the
Monday night game last week was either but I'd give it a season high
1400).  Fort Lauderdale John Clare got red carded on Monday for
spitting! (found that out on the tv broadcast)

Next game  Sunday July 11th at 2:05pm vs Tampa Bay Rowdies
                I'll be at a wedding in Kingston on Saturday at least so
I'm only 50% sure I'll be back in time for the game.
