Final Score:.....York Region Shooters.........2...........Brampton City United...........1.........

Attendance was about 100 on this cool evening with the cold night air closing in fast with about 50/50 support for each team.

The Shooters had the run of play overall in this game—maybe it would have been better if they slowed down a step because I estimate they were called offside something like 20 times. BCU players were called about half that often.

Best non-scoring chances at 19 minutes when BCU Marcos Nunes poked a shot from 15 yards while on a 1 on 1 on the left and the goalie blocked the shot at 12 yards. At 29 minutes YRS Chris Turner took a 35 yard freekick from the right that found YRS Rick Titus on the left near endline from 8 yards across box and a defender cleared at 3 yards. Shooters had a flurry when at 42 minutes YRS Taylor Lord in the middle tapped a pass forward from 25 yards to YRS Kadian Lecky and his low 12 yarder was partially blocked by the sprawling goalie and the ball rolled wide right of post. The resulting cornerkick from Desmond Humphrey from the right was low and Jason DeThomasis turned at 18 yards on the right and fired a shot that deflected off a defender just wide left of the post. The resulting cornerkick from Humphrey on the left had the leaping DeThomasis on the left head the ball wide left from 8 yards. Injury time had BCU Nunes flip up a ball with his back to the goal and bicycle kick from 15 yards that was wide left of the net. Just before the whistle YRS Humphrey tapped a freekick on the left edge of the box to YRS Jason DeThomasis who blasted a 20 yarder high and so far wide right it went for a throw-in. 58 minutes had YRS Lecky intercept the BCU goalie's clearance, turn and blast a low 15 yard shot that the goalie blocked and that ball deflected for a throw-in. 71 minutes had BCU Oswald Adu 20 yard shot on extreme right stopped by the goalie at 12 yards. 72 minutes had YRS Ryan Dummett rush on the left and rolled a cross that Lecky booted well over the net and the back fence (of course a minute later he made up for it by scoring). 78 minutes found YRS sub Dino Gardner rush to the ball in the middle and cut an 18 yard shot that was caught by the goalie as it flew towards the top left corner of the net. 81 minutes had DeThomasis bend a 30 yard freekick down the middle which the flying goalie pushed wide left of the post. 85 minutes had the BCU goalie get a hand in to stop YRS sub Jalen Brome from getting to a 5 yard header on a cross sent in from the right.

85 minutes also found BCU Judah Hernandez return to the field in the #11 jersey three minutes after BCU Andy Garcia who started the game as #11 was subbed out. Reason turns out that Hernandez's #8 had blood on it and the referee ordered a change. This was in the middle of a flurry of statistics action as there were six Yellow cards from the 79 minute mark on and two player changes as the Shooters successfully killed off the time after the BCU goal with short cornerkicks and throw-ins which won further kicks and retakes.

The game was mean spirited. One incident happened at 33 minutes when YRS Jason DeThomasis was injured on the edge of the BCU box and the BCU players ran the ball upfield and the YRS goalie dived on the ball on the right side of the box and BCU Oswald Adu bumped him over and rolled a 12 yard cross that a defender cleared as the referee's assistant was frantically waving his flag. The goalie was down for about four minutes.

BCU was without the CSL leading scorer Richard West who was injured more severely then what it appeared after he had to leave last Sunday's game against London City. He had an ice pack on his knee at the end of that game but a BCU official said it was an injury below the knee caused by a studs-up challenge that makes his return to action day by day.

Shooters regain sole possession of fourth place that they shared with Montreal Impact Academy who had just earned a win hours earlier to pull into a tie with 38 points. Shooters record improves to 12-6-5 for 41 points. BCU's record falls to 10-8-3 for 33 points. They fell to eighth less than one hour later when Mississauga Eagles hopped over them with an upset win over Toronto Croatia. Brantford Galaxy had a chance to tie BCU for the final playoff spot but were upset by TFC Academy. The standings may not stay like that for too much longer (without more games being played) because rumours abond that the league may finally reverse a BCU loss because Windsor Stars used three illegal players way back on May 14th when they beat BCU.
