Final Score:....Oakville Blue Devils.........3........Pro Stars FC........2......

Attendance was about 250 on this warm and sunny afternoon.

This was a game between two of the three 'new' teams to League 1 Ontario for 2015. The Oakville Blue Devils are the same organization, with even some of the players, that played in the PDL League last year as the Toronto Lynx. They play at Sheridan College in Oakville—always matinee games as there are no lights at this stadium.

The team has used the name 'Oakville Blue Devils' before when they played ten years ago in the CPSL—winning the championship in 2005--as a farm team for Toronto Lynx when that team was in the A-League. Blue Devils have an agreement with the powerful Oakville Soccer Club and they have their Lynx Academy so they shouldn't have the team too weakened by players returning to college in August. Oakville mayor Rob Burton took the ceremonial opening kickoff today.

Referee Scott Milliquet gave out two Yellow cards and the direct Red—that I counted—all to Blue Devils players.

Pro Stars forward Leaford Allen seemed to have the best non-scoring chances all by himself when at 5 minutes when a PS player chipped a cross from 30 yards on the left that he charged and leapt to try to chip from 10 yards down the middle but the goalie caught it 6 yards. At 22 minutes he chipped a through ball kick over the goalie into the net from 15 yards but it was called back offside. 25 minutes had him appear to clap the face of OBD Chris Karafilov knocking him over to get by and his open shot from 15 yards up the middle was into the left side of the net but was flagged by the referee's assistant for the foul. He was injured between the tieing and winning OBD goals and was not replaced as the team had apparently made their five subs. (although I only counted four).

Until Allen was injured the Pro Stars had played almost the entire second half with a man advantage. Nick Muth is one of only two imports on OBD--(No he's not from Uruguay—Luis Saurez 2010 World Cup handball joke—but from Knoxville Tennessee USA). OBD actually played better when a man down.

Oakville improves to a record of 3 wins, 0 ties, 0 losses. I saw games on Friday night and Saturday night where Durham United then Sigma FC played their third games of the year but earned only ties to go with their 2 wins. The Saturday night game I couldn't get to had Vaughan Azzurri improve to 3-0-0. Blue Devils win so I didn't jinx every perfect team! Pro Stars record falls to 0 wins, 1 tie, 2 losses.
