Final Score:......York Region Shooters.......1..........SC Waterloo........0........

Attendance was about 100 on this warm early evening with the sun coming out at the start of the second half and the game ending before it got dark.

Adrian Ibanez earned the shutout for the Shooters having to provide a few key saves but mostly chances were minimized by the defenders Gerard Ladiyou, Ricky Herron, Marcelo Capazzolo, and Fitzroy Christey with Dino Gardener replacing Capazzolo at halftime.

Waterloo's defence of Shawn Brown, Dado Hadrovic, Nemanja Simeunovic, and Predrag Papaz kept the Shooters chances down until the last 20 minutes when they had to open up. They made a lot of clearing headers from their box. Hadrovic had the ball deflect off him and get by the goalie somewhat like the MLS Chivas USA vs Toronto FC game almost two weeks ago.

Referee Ramee Arbaji gave out six Yellow cards that I counted--three to each team. All the Shooters cards were for complaining or time wasting. This was a very rough game with Waterloo players trying to draw fouls early and Arbaji waving play on. At most they would be awarded freekicks. There were a number of fans on both teams complaining about every bit of contact and call.

Waterloo did not use any of their substitutions. They had five players listed and warming up during halftime plus an entire team because their Reserves Division team had just finished playing Shooters Reserves before this game started. Shooters won 3-1. Waterloo was tiring in the second half while Shooters had refreshed with five subs working their way into the game from halftime onward. Poor Darazen Vukovic was limping back towards his end to avoid being called offside and wasn't playing possum because when he did get the ball on a pass, a swarm of defenders did check him off the ball or intercepted his pass attempts. Captain Vukovic is second in team scoring with five goals while Adis Hasecic has ten and was still on the field. I don't follow the team close enough to know who takes the Penalty kicks.

After the Shooters goal when Waterloo had to open up to get the equalizer, shooters had two good chances to put the game away before they conceded the Penalty kick. 80 minutes had YRS Ricky West tap a pass to the charging Gerard Ladiyou as they'd worked their way up the middle and Ladiyou shot wide right from 8 yards. 84 minutes had YRS West pass to the left for YRS Vasileios Liagkos to shoot a low 22 yarder that was just wide right of the post.

Shooters earn their 8th win in a row and lead the league with a 9 win, 2 loss, 1 tie record and a leading goals against of 8 in 12 games played. Waterloo's record falls to 5 wins, 3 losses, 3 ties and after other results this weekend should be in 5th place.

Jamaican international midfielder Ricky Edwards has signed with the Shooters and is currently in New York City waiting for Canadian visas/permits before he can play.
