Sunday - August 27, 2006
Italia's Leckie a hat-trick

Laval Dynamites strolled to an 8-0 victory over Caribbean Selects, Italia Shooters defeated Oakville Blue Devils 3-2 in a Bronte Stadium thriller and North York Astros and Brampton Stallions played to a scoreless tie, as three of four games scheduled in the CSL were played Sunday.

Italia Shooters forward Kadian Leckie led his team with a hat-trick in the 3-2 defeat of National Division leaders Oakville Blue Devils, a well-played, fast, but physical encounter at the Bronte Stadium in Oakville. The hat-trick came at 40, 52 and 70 minutes from close range after Oakville’s Denny Dradanic opened the scoring to give the home side an early lead after eight minutes. Forward Gavin Russell scored the second Blue Devils’ goal at the 91st minute mark.

Italia’s victory starts to secure the third spot in the International Division standings, a position necessary to guarantee a playoff berth. The Vaughan-based team now has 23 points from an improved 6-5-5 WLT record. Oakville are held to a 7-5-4 record for 25 points, just a point in front of Brampton Stallions,

Laval Dynamites had a field day with their 8-0 victory over Caribbean Selects at the Bois-de-Boulogne Stadium, Laval, with forward Vladimir Edouard, midfielder Kyte Sellaidopoulos and forward Rachid Madkour each scoring twice. Caesar Castro and Mourad Bellari scored singles. The score was 3-0 at halftime and the win lifts Les Dynamites into third position in the National Division with a 6-7-5 record for 23 points and they are very much a playoff contender. Caribbean now have a 1-12-3 record for 6 points at the foot of the International Division.

The scoreless tie at Esther Shiner Stadium was a result of mostly midfield play with little opportunity by either side to find the net. The Astros were down to 10 men for the last 10 minutes when Misiara Beleschi was ejected at the 82nd minute for dissent. North York now has a 3-7-6 for 15 points, tied with London City at the foot of the National Division, while Brampton are in a strong position for a playoff berth with a 7-6-3 record for 24 points in second position.

The Toronto Supra Portuguese vs. Windsor Border Stars game was called off Sunday morning when it became clear the playing surface was in a poor condition following heavy rain.
