FIRST WIN FOR SUPRA PORTUGUESE
Sunday - August 6, 2006
Ottawa Italia celebrates
That was the reaction of Rick Giamberardino, general manager of Ottawa St. Anthony Italia following the not unexpected, but mild 1-0 upset of two-time Open Canada Cup winner Windsor Border Stars at the OZ Stadium in Carp on the outskirts of Ottawa in Open Canada Cup quarter-final action Sunday, and in CSL regular season play, Toronto Supra Portuguese also celebrated with their first victory of the 2006 season, winning with a vengeance, a 6-1 rout of Caribbean Selects at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke.
Giamberardino praised the Windsor team as being tough and of a standard they expected, but was elated at the win. “I think we deserved it,” he said, giving credit to his players following a game described as a fast-paced, clean encounter in excellent conditions.
Ottawa’s Urbaine Some, playing in a central midfielder role, scored the only goal of the match from a free kick just outside of the 18 yard box, shooting just to the right of Windsor goalkeeper Anthony Santilli who otherwise played a strong game which included saves from Italia’s Souleyme Gugu, who had several opportunities to add to the score. Windsor’s best chance to draw level was a strong drive that hit the woodwork with Ottawa ‘keeper Angus Wong well beaten just before the final whistle.
Ottawa St. Anthony Italia, one of the most prominent and successful senior amateur teams in Central Canada, advance to the semi-finals of the Open Canada Cup to be played at the beginning of September, and are heading also into the quarter-finals of the Ontario Cup for the provincial championship leading to the Canadian title.
Toronto Supra Portuguese forward Uarlem Castro scored a hat-trick in the 6-1 domination of Caribbean Selects in the only CSL league game played Sunday at Etobicoke’s Centennial Stadium. He put the ball past Caribbean goalkeeper Ramon McIntosh at 11, 26 (penalty) and 49 minutes, while Andrew Silva struck two goals at 34 and 67 minutes. Fabio Silva scored the other Supra goal, the second of the match at the 21st minute mark when he chipped the ball over the oncoming McIntosh. Douglas Sereti scored the lone Caribbean goal at the 47th minute, scoring from the penalty spot when Selects’ Dwayne Osborne was brought down.
The win gives Supra a 1-3-6 WLT record for 9 points, while Caribbean Selects have a 1-9-2 record for 5 points, also in the CSL’s International Division.
