Final Score:........Serbian White Eagles........0.........Toronto Supra Portuguese......0.....
Attendance was about 550 on this mild night. The crowd was smaller than usual; partly explained by the big crowd just last night in downtown Toronto with White Eagles playing Toronto Croatia. Also a downpour just before game time would have cut down on the walk up crowd. I was caught in a hail storm on my drive here and almost had to pull over.
Dusan Belic earned the shutout for the White Eagles and Michael Silva did the same for Supra. Both goalies had some tough saves. At 6 minutes, SWE Gabriel Pop got to a cornerkick from the right that sailed over the other players in the box and his 10 yard blast from the left was blocked by the goalie. At 12 minutes Adolfo Mella had his 25 yard freekick up the middle land on the top of the net when it dipped down a bit too late. TSP Jorge Cadolfa got a through ball on the right at 14 minutes and his 12 yard shot hit the cross bar on the left side. At 19 minutes, Michael Diluca's 20 yard shot from the right has diving goalie push wide left of the post. Diluca then looked like he'd scored three minutes later but the play was called back. At 36 minutes Pop got the ball deflected off his side and into the net from 4 yards on his slide but that play I could see was flagged offside. Pop was then injured one minute later when the TSP goalie leapt for a ball and landed on him. In injury team, Steven Craig got a pass while charging up the middle and his 22 yard shot was caught by the crumpling goalie. At 55 minutes, Mella was touched a ball in middle and his 30 yard low blast hit the outside of the right post. At 71 minutes, SWE Marko Janicek bashed into the TSP box and his 8 yard shot was stopped point blank by the goalie and he poked the rebound wide left when he slid and connected from 5 yards. White Eagles threatened more often late in the game with more freekicks and cornerkicks but like the night before, Sasa Viciknez took all the dead ball set pieces.
I had planned to go to the Toronto Croatia vs Italia Shooters because these teams are closer in the standings but I was thinking of the field they play on would be swamped by the rain and wondered if the game would be played at all so I detoured to this game. Ha. I thought this game would be a walkover although I did see Supra hold off Shooters for 85 minutes earlier this week. Supra can still make the playoffs although they are fourth in the International division but there are so many bunched teams in the National division that they could still make it as a wildcard team.
