Final Score:.........North York Astros..........1.........Brampton City United FC........1.......

Attendance was about 70 on this hot late afternoon.

BCU had almost the entire game to put this game out of reach while Astros did best on a few counterattack opportunities. BCU goalie Roy Blanche got punished for playing too far off his line on the goal but got caught out of his net a few times. He cleared the ball a few times from the 40 yard line. Astros goalie got caught by the referee's assistant for punting the ball downfield stepping out of his box and that resulted in a dangerous freekick.

Midfielder Mikateko Zwane had come in at the 57 minute mark in Astros Friday night game against SC Toronto, then played the full game in the CSL Reserves League on Saturday and came in to today's game at halftime. That's a lot of soccer. He wore number 15 and an Astros staff member said he is only age 15. Rei Ishakawa is actually from Japan and played professionally in Argentina before joining the Astros. He looked to be the shortest man on the pitch.

High praise was given to the referee by the officials assessor on the Astros goal. The proper call was to let the play continue. If Ishakawa hadn't been able to get away, a Red card should have been given to the goalie.

Other scoring chances included at 4 minutes when Astros Diego Maradona took a cornerkick from the left that had Jevon Vanderreyden in a crowd of players head the ball over the bar from 5 yards. At 8 minutes Astros Alexandre Oran pushed a through ball pass forward for Nordo Gooden rushing on the left who rounded the goalie but he pushed the ball too far forward and couldn't control on the end line. At 20 minutes, BCU Richard West crossed from 25 yards on the left and BCU Daniel Cameira connected on a 6 yard midair shot that he sends wide right of the net. At 25 minutes Astros Gooden took a quick 35 yard shot from the left that just glanced off the right post. At 36 minutes Astros Maradona rushed down the left and took a low cross from 25 yards through a defender and Gooden took a point blank shot from 10 yards that the goalie saved. 40 minutes found BCU West eluding two defenders on the right and his 15 yard shot is blocked but he got the ball back and passed to Kevin McIntosh who chipped wide of the top left corner of the net from 15 yards.

The second half found BCU David Velastagui rush on the left and rolled in a cross that found Kevin Omokhua who blasted a shot over the net from 8 yards. Two minutes later Omokhua rushed on the right and his 20 yard cross along the end line was just over a jumping West at 5 yards. At 59 minutes Astros Ishakawa passed from 22 yards on the right and Gooden was checked off the ball in the box without getting a shot away from 6 yards. At 64 minutes BCU West rushed on left and rolled a pass to Velastagui who turns on defender and his 6 yard shot into left webbing of net. At 83 minutes BCU Cameron Medwin eluded a defender and blasted a 15 yard low shot that hit the left post. At 88 minutes Astros Patrick Dolowicz gets forward pass from right and rounded the goalie on right but his 12 yard shot was wide right.

Today's result means the Astros still haven't won in their seven games this year although this was their third tie. They are last (14th) in the standings. BCU now have their first tie this year to go with three wins and four losses and are just outside the playoffs (9th).
