Final Score…Portuguese Supra………..0…………Trois-Rivieres Attak………1……….
Attendance was about 30 on this mild but rainy night. It rained before the game and turned the field into a bog. During the first half it rained either hard or light and changed intensity about three times during that time. The game was delayed 20 minutes before it started and that worked temporarily but soon it was pouring again.
The league has not held a game at this stadium in downtown Toronto this season. Over the years it has been the home of the Supra but needed improvements. The players can at least use the dressing rooms under the stands now rather than across the street to the school. The field is had nice grass but another game like tonight’s played on the wet and it will be chewed up again. A bank of lights at the south east corner was not working so the field was somewhat darker at the one end after the sun went down. The scoreboard doesn’t work but that’s no different than other years. There are not screens/ads along the west fence so there was not much encouragement to come inside. Neighbours can always watch the game from the shelter of their porches. I was most comfortable watching the game in the first half in a four foot concrete crawlspace under the stands. I wanted to keep my notes dry. In the stands the Supra had two guys playing drums throughout the game so the music sounded like Brazil if you just concentrated on the play and not the surroundings. The rain did stop in the second half so I went over to the fourth official to watch any subs coming into the game. There were no line-ups written out so I figured out who was playing from older ones as I’ve seen each team within the last few weeks.
Jon Paul Piques earned the shutout for the Attak with a few important stops. The Supra were caught more than a few times on offside calls and mistimed passes but played competently on defence. The wet field played the great equalizer as the Attak had their play slowed down by the field conditions.
action easy enough to see but my camera has limitations.
