August 7, 2006 CSL Open Canada Cup Italia Shooters vs Brampton Stallions (from CSL website)
ADVANCE IN OPEN CANADA CUP
Monday - August 7, 2006
Stallions oust Shooters
A goal by Brampton Stallions forward Hugo Herrera just seven minutes into the game held up to give the Stallions a 1-0 Open Canada Cup quarterfinal victory over Italia Shooters at The Soccer Centre in Vaughan, the only game in the Canadian Soccer League Monday night.
Brampton advance along with weekend winners London AEK and Ottawa St. Anthony Italia, with the fourth quarterfinals game between the Toronto Lynx and Hamilton Serbians scheduled for Brian Timmis Stadium in Hamilton on August 13. London City, as the host of the Open Canada Cup Final weekend, have a wild card opportunity to win their way to the semifinals on Friday, September 1, with the semifinals scheduled for the Labour Day weekend and the final game on Monday, September 4.
Herrera’s goal was a solo effort up the right wing to let fly a shot from 25 yards to find the net out of reach of Italia goalkeeper Camilo Benzi. Attempts by Jason De Thomasis and Franki Bruno failed to provide the Vaughan-based Shooters an equalizer and Roy Blanche in the Brampton goal made good saves, particularly a late effort by Italia’s Rob Black.
Brampton played with 10 men late in the game after losing Oneil Sang who was ejected on a second yellow card.
