Final Score:...Woodbridge Strikers........4.......Master's FA........0......

Attendance was about 60 on this cool and damp night with a light rain starting just before game time and stopping and starting throughout the night. Within five minutes of the game ending the skies opened up. There had been over 200 people at the League 1 Ontario Women's game between Woodbridge and Durham United finishing just two hours before this game started which DUFC won 3-0. It was their home opener. Nicer weather? Better promotion? Women's World Cup fever? They were trying to make the day a triple header by promoting a women's recreational league after the men's game but there were less than ten people left by the time the rain started coming down fast.

Referee Scott Decker gave out five Yellows that I counted with Strikers getting two in the first half while Master's picked their three in the second half. Quite a few injuries in tonight's game with mistimed tackles on the wet field.

Matt George earned the shutout for Woodbridge without having to make a lot of stops.

Best non-scoring chances were at 19 minutes when MFA Kamden Holder took a 50 yard freekick that the goalie punched the ball ahead in a crowd of players and Isaiah Page blasted a low 16 yard shot that the sprawling goalie made a point blank save. 27 minutes had WS Jonathan Parolini get a loose ball at 25 yards and take a low shot after running to the middle and the diving goalie stopped at 1 yard on the post. A WS player pounded in the rebound but was flagged offside. 49 minutes had MFA David James run to a ball on the right and take a low 25 yard shot that the diving goalie was able to push wide right of the post. 80 minutes had WS Andrew Derayeh rush from the right to center and take a 30 yard shot that the goalie slid at 5 yards and palmed the ball over the net.

Vaughan Grove is adjacent to the Ontario Soccer Centre. I stopped my car in that parking lot to see how progress is coming along on the new stadium. Although it's fenced off which makes viewing difficult because it's uphill from the roadway, I could see that the playing field had finally been levelled. No grass or turf laid. There were also no stands yet! This place is supposed to open by July 4th to host the USL Pro game between Toronto FC II and FC Montreal. Will they have time to complete this project within the next month? First promotion idea—bring your own garden chair night! Prizes for best/biggest/flimsiest/most colourful etc.

Strikers' record improves to 3 wins, 0 draws, 2 losses for 9 points and the win jumps them over three teams at 8 points into 5th place. Master's record slips to 0 wins, 2 draws, 4 losses for 2 points. They now slip to a tie for 11th with Pro Stars FC with an identical record although a better goal difference. (12 teams in league) Last night Thomas Winski scored two goals for Pro Stars although they were hammered 7-2 by Windsor. Winski played for Master's last season. Looks like he was not destined for a good year no matter whether he stayed or moved on.

I've completed my league Bingo card tonight! These were the last two clubs of the twelve team league that I hadn't seen play. Did it all by the sixth week taking in 13 games. Tougher than it looks while still holding Toronto FC tickets and taking in their PDL league team's games.
