June 27, 2004 CPSL Sunday's games (from CPSL site)


Vaughan Shooters and Metro Lions both scored wins while short-handed for the entire second half in the two games played in the Canadian Professional Soccer League Sunday.

Lions won their fourth game in succession, a 2-1 defeat of Toronto Croatia in an afternoon game at Memorial Park in Mississauga, while Vaughan Shooters maintained their position at the top of the Eastern Conference standings with a 1-0 victory over Hamilton Thunder at The Soccer Centre in Vaughan Sunday night.

In the only game played on Saturday, Border Stars were held to a scoreless tie by visiting St. Catharines Roma Wolves at Windsor Stadium and there were two games on Friday, when Brampton Hitmen and London City each scored important victories to move both teams up the standings so that these two teams with Border Stars now occupy the top three positions in the CPSL Western Conference.

The Hitmen scored a narrow 2-1 win over Durham Storm at the Civic Stadium in Oshawa and London City scored a come-from-behind 3-2 squeaker at The Cove in London where City forward Paul Munster scored two goals for the second time this season.

Metro Lions' Haitian-born forward Maxim Elie-Dorneval was the hero in his team's win over Toronto Croatia, scoring both goals at 17 and 82 minutes. Croatia's Willy Giammarra scored from the penalty spot at 20 minutes to record his third goal from a set play in three games since June 11.

Metro Lions defender Kevin Ricketts was ejected after 20 minutes, leaving Metro Lions with 10 men for most of the game.

The win improves Metro Lions to a 4-1-1 WLT record and second position with 13 points.

Vaughan Shooters' forward Matthew Palleschi broke clear passed the half-way line to push the ball past Thunder 'keeper Roberto Ferrari to score the only goal at The Soccer Centre in the 1-0 win.

Referee Justin Tasev ejected Vaughan's Danny Sanna one minute to the interval leaving his team with 10 men for the entire second half.

The win gives Shooters a 4-1-2 record for 14 points and top position in the east.
