Final Score:.......Vaughan Azzurri......2.........ANB Futbol.........2.........

Attendance was about 80 on this warm afternoon with a bright sun in the southwest although it clouded over in the second half and was quite windy.

The game wasn't rough in cards given out—only three Yellows, two to ANB but there were a lot of subs for injuries. Vaughan's Dayonn Harris had to come out at 40 minutes and Matthew Arnone had to come out at 90 minutes. For ANB, captain Jason Mills had to leave at 44 minutes. His replacement was Adonijah Reid who would score their second goal. He usually comes in as a sub in the second half and is still only age 15 (until September). Mills had been Red carded on Wednesday but that was a Cup game so didn't effect his status today for a League game.

The game had 5 minutes of injury time added in the second half with both teams going all out during the last ten minutes of the game. The extra time was added when the referee twisted his ankle and had to have a team trainer wrap up his foot so he could continue. See? Another injury!

Best non-scoring chances were at 70 minutes when ANB Jahsua Mills passed forward for ANB Adonijah Reid who ran to the left end line and rolled a pass through the 6 yard box a step behind the sliding Mills at 2 yards. 85 minutes had VA Dena Iezady on a 2 on 2 rush shoot a 25 yarder from the left that the sliding goalie palmed across the box at 12 yards. 86 minutes had ANB Reid rush on the left and tapped a pass to ANB Jackson Tooke who had 20 yard shot through players and hit the left post. 93 minutes had ANB Blake Jones tap a pass to Reid running forward and he shot a 12 yarder off the right post. 97 minutes had an ANB player chip a ball into the box from 20 yards on the left. There were no ANB players charging into the box to challenge for it and a VA defender flicked the ball up at 8 yards and the goalie caught it. That was ruled a backpass and ANB was awarded a freekick. That took awhile to set up and finally ANB Jahsua Mills and Brandon Mills worked out a tap and blast strategy that was blocked as the wall of players charged forward and the ball deflected for a cornerkick. The goalie punched that out in a crowd of players and the game was finally over.

This tie result means that both teams lose ground to Oakville Blue Devils who won later in the afternoon against Kingston. Vaughan's record is 4 wins, 2 draws, 0 losses for 14 points 2nd place, ANB is 3 wins, 2 draws, 0 losses for 11 points for 3rd place. Oakville rises to 5 wins, 1 draw, 0 losses for 16 points.
