Final Score:.........Oakville Blue Devils........3............North York Astros..........0..........
Attendance was about 50 on this mild late afternoon.
The Blue Devils played the Astros about even in chances when they were down a man but took over when they were back to even strength. Sabrahima Traore earned the shutout for the Blue Devils and Arthur Zaslavski was in net for the Astros. Both had some bobbles but their defence covered up.
Non scoring highlights included Astros Zafar Hamzaev heading a 10 yarder from the left just over the net on cross from right that was over defender and Astros Janarthan Sadacharalingam. At 24 minutes OBD Gavin Russell’s cornerkick from left had OBD Petro Czoli flick 8 yard header just over bar. At 38 minutes OBD Nicholas Poku’s 30 yard shot through crowd of players up the middle had goalie dive to make catch. At 41 minutes Astros Eugene Ishchak rushed in from right and his low 12 yard shot was blocked by sprawling goalie and Ishchak blasted a point blank shot into the fallen goalie’s chest. At 44 minutes OBD Czoli gets to bounce in middle at 30 yards around defender and his 20 yard chip hits the goalie in the face and bounces towards sideline.
In the second half at 53 minutes, OBD Andy Garcia’s cornerkick from the right is short to OBD Miles O’Conner who chips 12 yarder from right that’s caught by goalie. At 58 minutes, O’Conner blasted a 22 yard shot up the middle that was caught by goalie when OBD Czoli touches pass back to him. The next minute had Astros Jahmo Welch take a 45 yard freekick that an Astros player popped up on a header and an OBD defender headed the ball off the line for a cornerkick. At 73 minutes Astros Dawid Antonczk’s low 15 yard shot is blocked by sprawling goalie when OBD defender misses a sliding tackle trying to block cross. At 78 minutes Astros Daniel Vocino has his 10 yard header bobble by goalie but he does grab it. At 80 minutes Astros Welch low 20 yard roller from right is just wide of left post.
Oakville maintains their first place lead in the National Division. The top five teams are closely bunched so every win can change the places in the standings. Blue Devils head coach Phil Ionadi and I compared the Serbian White Eagles and his theory is they got off to such a good start because they were well conditioned when the season started but now there are other teams catching them and their games aren’t blowouts anymore.
