The Toronto Supra is still undefeated this season.

But the Etobicoke-based Canadian Professional Soccer League squad must now overcome a significant setback if it hopes to continue its successful ways.

The Supra is off to a 5-0-2 start, good for second place in the league's six-team Eastern Conference, behind only the defending CPSL champion Ottawa Wizards, who are off to a 7-0-1 start.

But the local squad must now make due without the services of talented midfielder Fabio Silva.

The 22-year-old left town on Monday in order to go play for a First Division squad in Portugal's pro league. Prior to joining the Supra this season, Silva had also played pro soccer in his homeland of Brazil.

Regardless of how it fares the rest of the season, the Supra has already surpassed the number of wins (four) it registered during its disappointing campaign a year ago.

Cameira said following some poor officiating his side had to settle for a 3-3 draw against the visiting Vaughan Sun Devils this past Friday at Centennial Stadium.

The next Supra contest will be next Thursday (July 31) against the Scarborough-based Metro Lions. The opening kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. at Centennial Stadium.
