Final Score:.....Toronto FC Academy.......0........Durham United FC......2....

Attendance was about 80 on this hot afternoon with a bright sun alternating with period of clouds in what seemed to be five minute intervals. About one-quarter were DUFC supporters.

The game got rough at times with referee Ramee Arbaji eventually giving out three Yellow cards to each team--all except that Penalty kick call in the second half.

Ben Cowman earned the shutout for DUFC by making a few key saves. He was helped immensely by blocks by his defenders, by defenders poking the ball away from TFCA strikers, and other times by TFCA players taking one too many passes to get in position for a perfect shot and ending up with nothing.

Best non-scoring chances were at 23 minutes when DUFC Joseph Roccasalva recovered a TFCA defender's whiff on a clearance attempt and turned around and took a 12 yard shot that deflected off the sliding goalie at 7 yards and TFCA Kiadi Cela conceded a cornerkick by heading the ball away at 2 yards. 38 minutes had DUFC Le Rohne Young blasted a shot up the middle from 25 yards and the goalie made a flying save to push the ball wide right of the post. 64 minutes had DUFC defenders block and stop at least three TFCA chances on the edge of the box including blocked shots taken by Malik Johnson and Rashon Phillip. 79 minutes had Leonard Sohn take a 15 yard shot from the left that was stopped by the diving goalie at 8 yards. 87 minutes had DUFC Kashiff De Jonge work his way into the TFCA box and his 10 yard shot near the right end line had the goalie deflect the ball over the net.

DUFC midfielder/captain Taylor Lord was on the bench (but not listed as a sub) as he'd broken his hand last Saturday in their game against ANB Futbol.

Michael Stefano acted as head coach today for the Academy—a position he held for part of 2014. Regular head coach Stuart Neely was probably away with the PDL Academy team on their road trip last night in Dayton Ohio.

TFCA's record falls to 3 wins, 0 ties, 4 losses for 9 points good for 8th place in the 12 team league. DUFC improves to 4 wins, 2 ties, 2 losses for 14 points and a three way tie for 3rd place based on Sigma FC and ANB Futbol winning yesterday. Woodbridge Strikers has a chance to jump back over those teams with a game later tonight.
