OAKVILLE, CROATIA SCORE SUNDAY WINS
Sunday - September 17, 2006
Four teams in playoffs
While the conference titles are still undecided, we do know four teams are in the playoffs and three teams will not make the playoffs following four games played in the CSL Sunday.
Oakville Blue Devils and Toronto Croatia scored wins, Brampton, Italia, Laval and Serbian White Eagles all picked up a point and North York Astros and Toronto Supra Portuguese suffered defeat.
Sunday’s results confirm Oakville Blue Devils, Laval Dynamites, Serbian White Eagles and Toronto Croatia have secured playoff berths, while North York Astros, London City and Caribbean Selects are out of contention.
This means five teams, Brampton Stallions, Windsor Border Stars, St. Catharines Wolves, Italia Shooters and Toronto Supra Portuguese will continue to bid for the four remaining spots. One of these teams will join the Astros, London City and Caribbean Selects for an early end to the season.
Oakville Blue Devils were the dominant team in the game with North York Astros at Bronte Stadium on Sunday, outshooting the Astros by a good margin and scoring a 3-0 victory to take possession of the top position in the National Division.
Andy Garcia opened the scoring for Oakville at 35 minutes, to be followed by two goals from forward Petro Czoli at 39 and 71 minutes. Czoli’s first goal went in off the post with Astros’ goalkeeper Arthur Zaslavsi well beaten and he was on hand to tap in a rebound for the second.
Oakville’s Denny Velastegui was ejected after just four minutes for rough play and Astros’ Sasha Kaplan was also shown a red card at 34 minutes following two cautions. The Blue Devils are on top with a 9-6-6 WLT record for 33 points, while North York Astros are at 3-8-8 for 17 points.
Brampton Stallions and Italia shooters fought to a 1-1 at Victoria Park, with Anthony Adur scoring for Italia just before half-time and Andre De Andrade tying the game with a penalty kick for Brampton at 85 minutes. Italia’s Bill Androutsos was given a red card for the foul.
The Stallions have an 8-7-4 record for 28 points, good for third place in the National Division, while Italia have a 7-5-8 record for 29 points and third place in the International Division.
Laval Dynamites and Serbian White Eagles played to a scoreless tie to repeat Saturday’s score at the Bois-de-Boulogne Stadium at Laval. Les Dynamites completed their 22-game regular season schedule with a 8-7-7 record for 31 points and must await the outcome of several games before their final position in the National Division is known.
Serbian White Eagles have a 14-1-4 record for 46 points, now just two points in front of Toronto Croatia at the top of the International Division. Toronto Croatia defeated Toronto Supra Portuguese 5-1 at Brockton Stadium on goals by Boris Tomac, Hayden Fitzwilliams, Alberto Harris and two by Tommy Ples. Uarlem Castro scored for Supra Portuguese.
Croatia has a 13-2-5 record for 44 points while Supra Portuguese a 4-7-7 record for 19 points.
