Final Score:........Brampton City United.......0.................SC Waterloo.........4...........

Attendance was about 150 on this cold night with it being dark by the time the game started.

I'd never been to the Terry Fox Stadium in Brampton before. (Victoria Park with its natural grass field has been closed by the City of Brampton for the season). This stadium which is part of Chinguacousy Park. It is field turf surrounded by an 8 lane track and three segmented aluminum stands all on the west side. The 20 yard separation from stands to the sideline seemed like a long way and with BCU dressed in white with gold numbers, it made it hard for me to tell the players apart on the far side of the field.

This was a battle between the 4th seeded Brampton and 5th seeded Waterloo although by momentum in the last month Waterloo had been closing the gap. Waterloo is a hot team with now five wins in a row with scores of 2-0, 9-0, 2-1, 5-0, and now 4-0 while BCU had a slumping 1 win, 5 loss, 1 tie record up until tonight.

This was a rough game with lots of tackles causing injuries on both sides although every player could eventually continue after a visit by the trainer. Referee Ramee Arbaji from my count gave out four Yellow cards to BCU and two to Waterloo and all the Yellows were given out before the Red card.

Best non-scoring chances were at 24 minutes when SCW Ranko Golijanin blasted a 20 yard freekick down the middle that dipped and landed on top of the net. A minute later Golijanin was tapped a pass forward and his 20 yard shot from the left was batted down by the goalie and picked up. At 32 minutes a BCU forward chipped from 30 yards over defenders and BCU Adrian Tismenar flicked a 12 yard header over the net. 36 minutes had a BCU player's cornerkick from left have BCU Mirko Medic head 6 yarder off the bar. 54 minutes had BCU Marcos Nunes rush on the right on a 3 on 2 rush and his 20 yard centering pass had a defender knock the ball down and the goalie stepped forward to pick it up at 5 yards. 63 minutes had SCW Nemanja Simeunovic take a long throw-in from the right from the 30 yard line and SCW Drazen Vukovic blasted a 30 yarder up the middle that deflected off a defender at 20 yards and the goalie dived to make the save on the right post. 73 minutes and BCU Milos Scepanovic's one-touch blast up the middle from 25 yards had the goalie save. 75 minutes had BCU players take a quick short cornerkick from the left and the cross in had Scepanovic head an 8 yarder off the right post and the rebound was cleared. 82 minutes had SCW Simeunovic head a 12 yarder wide right upon receiving a freekick from 30 yards.

SC Waterloo now travels to play #2 ranked Toronto Croatia in one of the semi-finals in Etobicoke this weekend. If Croatia doesn't win their appeal for the fight late in their quarterfinal game against Windsor they will be without two of their offensive stars which sets up another upset in the making.
