Final Score:......Pro Stars FC........2........Windsor Stars........7......
Attendance was about 70 on this cool evening. The game ended and it still wasn't dark.
Windsor Stars ripped open a 4-0 lead before 40 minutes on breaking through the ProStars defence. ProStars did score twice just before the end of the first half to make it close but I really didn't think that they'd make a complete comeback. ProStars lost 5-0 last weekend to Toronto FC Academy who hadn't won up to that point in the season. Today it was already 5-2 before ProStars lost a man (eventually finishing with nine). Windsor proved for at least today that they were the only team that deserved to be called 'Stars'.
Best non-scoring chances (well almost every good chance was put away) were at 19 minutes when ProStars Pawandeep Sandhu took a 45 yard freekick from the left that had Nicholas Theobald charge forward and head from 12 yards that the goalie flew over to catch on the right post. 40 minutes had WS Michael Pio rush down the right and cross from 20 yards that has a flying Brett Homberg no quite able to fully redirect header at 6 yards and sends the ball wide left of the post. 67 minutes had WS Luis Cortes rush to tap a pass forward for Michael Pio to rolls 10 yard shot that hit the left post and a defender cleared for a cornerkick.
Windsor Noah Pio subbed in for brother Michael Pio...strange that earlier today I'd seen Jordan Stoddart replace brother Justin Stoddart on Sigma FC.
This game was played at Victoria Park Stadium in Brampton. I hadn't been here for at least two years since my CSL days. The stadium is almost finished with its renovations. There are new stands (aluminum replacing wood) and dressing rooms (not yet functioning so players still change inside the hockey rink). There's a new scoreboard (although it wasn't operating). Biggest surprize was Ennio Perruzza stepping in as the PA announcer when the rather quiet girl who started in the first half wanted to leave to study for upcoming exams. Ennio has called thousands of games (mostly for the CSL) over the years and doesn't really need a microphone with his booming voice. He'll be calling ProStars home games as well as keeping his foot in the CSL. Only thing I didn't like here tonight was the disorganization of having game sheets for the media—quite a runaround for me but I finally got a copy on my way out.
Windsor's record improves to 3 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses while ProStars fall to 0 wins, 2 draws, 4 losses. ProStars next home game isn't until July 25th.
