Final Score:..........Serbian White Eagles........2.......Toronto Supra Portuguese..........1...........

Attendance was about 750 on this warm evening with the sun only having an effect against the White Eagles in the first half.

The White Eagles remain undefeated in league play with ten wins in ten games. This game they didnít look as dominating as what Iíve read from reports in the last few weeks. They are missing scorers Gabriel Pop and Nicki Budalic both out with injuries and they couldnít connect on any dangerous shots in the first half.

The White Eagles got the winning goal set up when the Supra goalie was called for holding the ball for too long in the box before punting it away. That resulted in an SWE freekick from the edge of the box. Supraís Michael Diluca earned a Yellow card on Sasa Viciknezís original kick for being too close to the ball. Viciknez then blasted a shot that deflected off a TSP defender wide left for a cornerkick at 76 minutes.

Supra only won their first game of the season last week. They had a gift chance deep in injury time when Alex Rafael got a ball popped over to him and his 10 yard chip shot hit the right goalpost. The fans were really chanting for the referee to blow the whistle to preserve the White Eagles win. There was a scheduled five minutes of injury time and that was extended when SWE Sinisa Ninkovic was hurt in his own end with a knock in the face.

These two teams were scheduled for a rematch on Sunday at this stadium with the Supra being deemed to be the home team but that game has been postponed because the White Eagles are going to play a special exhibition against Harbourview FC from Jamaica at 7:00pm. The league might be grateful the Supra rematch is not taking place right away because the game got chippy near the end of the game with so many legit and faked injuries; it was difficult to tell what was real.

A moment of silence was held at the beginning of the game in memory of the recent death of original Serbian White Eagle player Nikola Ivetic. He was a player back in the 1970s and was well before my time following soccer.
