Final Score:..........Toronto Supra Portuguese..............1...............SC Angrense...........2.................

Attendance was about 350 on this cold rainy day. I had changed into my parka before a drive from Centennial Stadium where I watch the games from the warmth of the press box. Here to avoid taking notes in the rain (yuck) I found I could sit under the stands in a crawl space and emerge bow legged at the end of each half. I didnít stay around long enough to see if they awarded trophies after the game but warned the organizers to move the trophy box because theyíd put them under a drain from the stands that was flooding the box. It was a pro-Angrense crowd but referee Isaac Raymond wasnít fazed in giving out unpopular calls. Many in the crowd had team scarves. Hey maybe another month and Iíll have a (Canadian) Voyageurs scarf I can wear in the heat of July and August.

This was a very competitive game. Both sides could have won and it was close to the final kick. Supra improved in the second half. SC Angrense are from the Azores Islands and plays in the Portuguese 3rd Division. They all have two names unlike many of the 1st Division players. Maybe European 2nd and 3rd Division teams are what CSL club teams should limit themselves to have each game competitive. CSL London City earned a 2-2 tie against this team earlier this weekend. The Sporting Braga game I saw a week ago was just like the Harlem Globetrotters-Washington Generals and could have been a double digit score if played anywhere but the parking lot type Astroturf of Lamport Stadium.

Angrense goalie Andre Viera had at least three shots that he had to fly over to and push wide of the post. They moved the ball well but their defence was somewhat suspect and they had to kick a lot of balls out of play when caught short at the back. Their officials were friendly enough when I was trying to put an assist on that first goal. Supra has again worn that black & white striped shirt with yellow numbers that I canít see. Itís not quite the same as the USL Rochester Raging Rhinos who have their yellow numbers in a white box thatís a lot easier to make out.

The field at Brockton had been chewed up on this rainy day by an old-timers game that was just ending when I got there. Much of the grass near the center circle had disappeared because of the rain weíve had for the last few days. A small steamroller was used before the game to smooth over the mud.

North end. That scoreboard doesn't work. Look at the steamroller. Smoothed out the cleat marks in the mud between games.


The south end. Hey watch the games from your back porch!
