August 17, 2006 CSL review of Italia Shooters vs Oakville Blue Devils (from CSL website)

Thursday - August 17, 2006
Sean Myers the difference

Italia Shooters’ forward Sean Myers led his team with two goals to a 3-1 victory over National Division leaders Oakville Blue Devils at The Soccer Centre in Vaughan in a rare Thursday game in the Canadian Soccer League.

Forward Jason De Thomasis opened the scoring for Italia following a chippy opening 44 minutes for a 1-0 halftime lead. Blue Devils’ Petro Czoli scored an equalizer three minutes into the second half and following more physical play Myers scored the first of his two goals at 72 minutes, adding his second 12 minutes later.

Oakville’s Sam Hassam was ordered off for violent conduct at the 78th minute mark.

The loss was a big one for the Blue Devils in their bid to win the National Division, they remain on top with 24 points, however, with a 7-4-3 WLT record. The win was important for Italia Shooters as they bid for a playoff spot and they now have an improved 5-4-4 record for 19 points, in third place behind Serbian White Eagles and Toronto Croatia in the International Division.
