Final Score:.........Brampton City United............4..............Windsor Stars...........1.............

Attendance was about 100 which was a bit better than two weeks ago because this time they had boys from the Brampton Academy (and their parents) play a halftime exhibition game.

I could see this whole game laid out before it started when I saw although the Stars roster had 15 names after all the scratch outs, the team played with 11 players and NO SUBS. As expected they held their own in the first half and tired as the second wore on although BCU didn't exploit this by emptying their full bench until after the third goal. Windsor had played a home game the night before at 7:00pm—a 4-1 win against the 2010 CSL champions Brantford Galaxy and now playing today after a four hour bus ride. Two goal scorer from that game David Kadoic played but two goal scorer Aaron Byrd didn't make the trip. Stephen Ademolu was their best player today making some solo runs through defenders but usually stopped by the final defender before he could get away a shot. Today reminded me of the bad old days of 2008 when the Windsor Border Stars made trips to the GTA and Montreal with not enough players.

BCU didn't play particularly well today and probably set a new record for the number of times they were called offside. Marcos Nunes, Jeremy Shepherd and Judah Hernandez were all guilty. I was surprised that Hernandez lost his temper a minute after he scored his goal. Putting up with all the offside flags he drew the whole game he earned a Yellow card at 88 minutes for kicking a ball into the net after another offside flag drew a whistle. League leading scorer Richard West injured two weeks ago has not returned to the line up.

Best non-scoring chances were at 36 minutes when WS Stephen Ademolu deked players at 30 yards for a clear chance and kicked a 20 yard chip over the goalie and the bar. A minute later BCU Judah Hernandez charged for a pass on the right and a low cross deflected off a defender. BCU Marcos Nunes turned back for the ball and sent a 12 yard low shot that the goalie saved. 42 minutes had WS Mike Vjkic pass forward to Ademolu on left for a 20 yard low shot that the diving goalie pushed wide left of the post. Start of the second half had BCU Jeremy Shepherd on a 2 on 1 break with Nunes take a low 16 yard shot himself that the goalie smothered. The next minute Nunes scored but a minute after that Hernandez blasted a low 15 yarder from the left that the goalie blocked and Nunes blasted the 18 yard rebound down the middle that the goalie also stopped. 56 minutes found WS Ademolu rush through the middle and tap over a pass for WS Christian Mayorga to blast a 22 yarder that the goalie palmed over the net. The resulting cornerkick resulted in the Stars only goal. 60 minutes had Hernandez on a rush down the left cross from 20 yards near the end line over to Nunes who headed over the net.

Today's results throughout the league has BCU pulling into a tie for seventh place with an 11-9-3 record. They are in a tie with Mississauga Eagles with a game in hand but more important 6 points ahead of Brantford Galaxy with a game in hand with Galaxy having only two games still to play. Stars record falls to 4-14-5 and they just play through their final games.
