The Hamilton Thunder defeated the eleven Lavallois 3-1

HAMILTON, September 7, 2003 - Two goals from forward Kevin De Serpa (24-th and 39-th) led the Hamilton Thunder to a victory of 3-1 against Laval Dynamites, on Saturday, at the Brian Timmis Stadium in Hamilton.

The only net of the Dynamites was registered by the rookie Bachir Housepian in the 77-th minute of the game, following to a collision among the Thunder's goalkeeper, Roberto Ferrari, and one of its defenders, Nikola Andrevic. Towards the end of game, David Guzman deprived the Dynamites of any hope by scoring the third Ontarian goal in the 90-th minute.

Dynamites head coach, Jawad Andaloussi, was missing the services of four starters such as, Nasson Théosmy, Paul Daccobert, Karl Stephen and Vladimir Édouard. The veterans Léo Incollingo, Kyt Selaidopoulos, Dave Cloutier, Sandro Adessa and Arturo Cisneros Sallas were thus being supported by players coming from the senior team of the Laval Conquérants, which evolves in the LSEQ.

" Despite playing with a reduced strength, we played a good match, declared Andaloussi. We dominated second half with several occasions to score. I am very satisfied with the young players in the lineup. However, they rush too much the plays because of their lack of experience. But I am not worried, the confidence will come! "

This defeat, combined with the Sun Devils tie, puts the Dynamites five points behind third place in the Eastern Conference, the last spot giving access to the playoff round of the Canadian Professional Soccer League.

The Dynamites will play for a second game within 24 hours, against the North York Astros.
