Final Score:...Toronto FC Reserves.......3.......Columbus Crew Reserves.......1.......

Attendance started at about 300 and there were still 200 at the start of the second half but only 80 after a slight rain started at the 62 minute mark although it only lasted about 5 minutes.

Referee Yusri Rudolf gave out four Yellow cards during the game--three to Toronto. It was a very open game with lots of rushes but TFC were often called offside.

The start of the second half had TFCR bring in TFC Academy players 34 Manuel Aparicio, 35 Chris Mannella and 38 Daniel Fabrizi replacing Danny Koevermans, Jonathan Osorio and Jeremy Brockie. The Osorio and Brockie subs were necessary because both had been used as second half subs in the main MLS game that had finished just over half hour earlier. Koevermans is just coming back from a year long injury. At 64 minutes (#39) Dylan Sacramento replaced defender Danny Califf although Sacramento played further forward on left wing.

Danny Koevermans only played the first half and his timing was off. His play is to knock down balls, hold up and pass off if he's being covered. A video is on the TFC website already about his game hilight--at 13 minutes when he shot into the net as the goalie stood still and watched because the play had been whistled for offside almost 3 seconds earlier.

Andrew Wiedeman was shown up by the Academy players once they entered the game and the plays they made. At 55 minutes Chris Mannella blasted a 25 yard shot from the left off the left post. Sacramento after a nice run through defenders on the left had the goalie dive to try to smother the ball at 6 yards and Sacramento knocked the ball back to Wiedeman who then tried a 12 yard chip but put it easier into the hands of the goalie who didn't have to move from standing at the left post.

Best defender in this game was TFC trialist 'Santos' (Gleison Pinto dos Santos). He made some key stops to break up CCR plays. Most important was at 38 minutes when he made a bicycle kick clearance at 25 yards to clear a possible 2 on 0 break-in. The game went on a bit too long for Santos as he drew the only CCR Yellow card of the game at 94 minutes when Jairo Arrieta collided into him just inside the center circle. Santos needed to be helped from the field.

Ashton Morgan improved his status in finding his way back to the first team as he played great defence and sent in great crosses from the wings. Kyle Bekker didn't have a great game with too many blind or bad passes that were intercepted.

The few spectators who stayed were certainly pro TFC but the ones near me were laughing at the attempts by John Bostock to win foul calls.
