Final Score:.........Serbian White Eagles............2..............Laval Dynamites.............0..........

Attendance was about 1100 on this mild evening that cooled off as the night wore on. With Serbia-Montenegro out of the World Cup in three games, the souvenir stand had a large supply of the Serbian car flags that were selling at sports stores up until a few days ago.

White Eagles kept getting flagged for offside so much that some fans took up a sarcastic chant every time their team was on a rush. I knew as the game wore on and after the red card that they would eventually spring it.

White Eagles could have put it away much earlier but for the goaltending of Angelo Olivieri. He guessed right on all but one occasion for staying back or charging out to clear through balls. Sasa Viciknez had him trapped off his line at 63 minutes but he shot wide. Dusan Belic was the goalkeeper for the White Eagles and didn’t have many difficult saves to make. Part of the White Eagles early strategy was for Belic to punt the ball downfield and have the forwards rush the Laval defence and try to overwhelm them. The Dynamites defence was pretty good with Gilbert Ilouanusi, Abraham Francois (ex-Lynx player), Loan Ouaidou (at least until the red card), and Sandro Addessa playing well. A strong defence was offset by them only having ‘Ammar’ and Rachid Madkour up front and usually no more than two on six rushes. White Eagles midfield of Alex Braletic, Bozo Milic, Nenad Stojcic, Mihajlo Bacanin, and Milan Janosevic kept feeding the balls to forwards Gabriel Pop and Nikola Budalic.

Laval came to the game with only two subs for the start of their three games in three days tilt through Toronto with a game tomorrow night against Caribbean Selects and a Sunday game with Italia Shooters. As teams have to play eleven road games to cut expenses Laval come on five weekend road trips and one weekend is a three game weekend. They better hope for reinforcements tomorrow or that Red cards aren’t tabulated into suspensions until the next week or they could be in trouble.

White Eagles have drawn the USL Toronto Lynx in the next round of the Open Canada Cup. Their both play their home games at Centennial Stadium. By random drawing the coincidence is hard to believe but works out good for the league. How many more than 73 would the Astros get if they were the home team drawn against the Lynx? At least the White Eagles would supply their loyal 1000 and if the Lynx could bring their fans it will be quite a showcase. Sure the draw must have been partially rigged to have Laval play an Ottawa area team. So the World Cup draw is partially ‘fixed’ too as by strictly random draw, there’d be a strong possibility one group might have four European teams.

The Lynx could be haunted by one player that used to play for them but now play for the White Eagles. Nikola Budalic played a midfielder tonight for the first 45 minutes of the game. He was a candidate for USL rookie of the year back in 2002.
