July 6, 2007 CSL details from Friday's games (from CSL media release)

Friday - July 6, 2007
London City strong

A determined London City toppled St. Catharines Wolves 2-1 and a jubilant Toronto Croatia just back from their victory over world Croatian teams in Europe, were held to a 2-2 tie by winless Canadian Lions in the two games played in the CSL Friday.

Just when St. Catharines were expecting to pull clear at the top of the National Division, the Garden City side ran into a quick-of-the-mark London City which went ahead on a strike by Garson Hazel at the 4 minute mark, a goal that held to halftime. The lead was cancelled out one minute into the second half when St. Catharines’ striker Carlo Arghittu was brought down in the box by City defender Roy Beishuicen and Matt Waddington beat London ‘keeper Tommy Bianchi from the spot.

Midfielder Camillo Gonzales scored the winner for London City at 54 minutes to give the Southwestern Ontario team an improved 2-5-1 WLT record for 7 points. St. Catharines are at 3-2-2 for 11 points.

It was a rough and tumble affair at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga where the home side went ahead on a goal by Tommy Ples at 27 minutes for a 1-0 lead at the interval. Joe Rini tied the game for Canadian Lions at 57 minutes and Mario Janjicek put Lions ahead at the 70th minute mark.

Canadian Lions failed to score from the penalty spot soon after taking the lead and Hayden Fitzwilliams tied the game for Croatia at 88 minutes.

There were 11 yellow cards handed out with Jonathan Bustamante of Toronto Croatia accounting for two and, therefore, a red in the second half. Croatia coach Milodrag Akmadzic was also ejected from the game when tempers flared in the second half.

Toronto Croatia have 13 points from an unbeaten 3-0-4 record, while Canadian Lions are winless at 0-5-3 for 3 points.
