Wolves in playoffs

St. Catharines Wolves became the first team to qualify for the playoffs with a 2-0 defeat of Windsor Border Stars at Windsor Stadium and Trois-Rivieres Attak kept pace with a 3-0 win over Canadian Lions before 1,171 fans at the University of Quebec Trois-Rivieres, two games played in the Canadian Soccer League Saturday afternoon.

St. Catharines, with five wins and a tie since August 15, maintain a five-point lead in the race for National Division honours over Trois-Rivieres, although the Attak (17 games) have two games in hand over the Garden City team (19 games).

St. Catharines took the lead at 76 minutes in their game with Border Stars when a goalmouth clearance by Windsor ‘keeper Anthony Santilli struck his defender and rebounded into the net for an own goal.

Defender Dan Gallagher struck the Wolves second goal at 81 minutes for the 2-0 final score.

St. Catharines have a 9-4-6 WLT record for 33 points, Border Stars have a 4-9-4 record for 16 points and third position in the National Division.

Trois-Rivieres Attak continued their winning way following the Open Canada Cup victory over Columbus Clan FC of Vancouver on Labour Day Monday and it was the league’s leading scorer Nicolas Lesage who opened the scoring at Windsor Stadium with a goal at 23 minutes, his 14th of the season. Jean-Louis Besse made it 2-0 just before the interval and Darko Kolic scored his 8th of the season to make it 3-0 at 66 minutes, the final score.

The Attak have a 7-3-7 record for 28 points to keep second position in the National Division, while Canadian Lions have a 3-7-7 record for 16 points.
