Final Score:.....Master's FA Saints........3......Kingston Clippers......4.......

Attendance started at about 20 and filled to almost double that by the second half for this early evening game played on a hot sunny day. Both teams took advantage of injured players that needed a trainer to get in a water break in each half. A Clippers official said it was the Saints who requested the 6:30pm start and his players had to ask to get out early from work (I'd estimate a four hour drive away)...they only had five subs and one was a goalie.

This game was a Cup game in Group A. Vaughan Azzurri had already won one of the two spots in the three team group with a 4-0 home win over Masters and 4-1 road win against Kingston. That left one spot open with the winner taking the other spot. A tie would result in immediate Penalty kicks with the winner getting two points and the loser one point.

Neither team tonight were from the elite of the league. Masters have a record of 0 wins, 2 ties, 8 losses for last place in the 12 team league. I could see the frustration in the Saints forwards as they waited for service that never arrived. I had to confirm after the game with referee Brian Butler that all four of the Saints Yellow cards were for dissent! Just as much dissent from their officials on the bench.

Saints second half effort should be bottled and carried back into league play as it looks promising for them to get a win soon.

Clippers are ninth in league play with 2 wins, 3 ties, 5 losses. Since there are no playoffs in the league the chances are remote of winning the championship but a Cup win is possible. Oakville Blue Devils are runaway leaders for the Championship but are already squeezed out of Cup competition with the three Group B teams all finishing with 1 win, 1 loss records. So no double winners again this year!

The Clippers move on to the quarterfinals of the Cup competition. It will make the ride back to Kingston (4 hours) by one of those Yellow schoolbuses easier to take. Same as their early season trip to Toronto when I thought some officials said they'd have a coach (ie bus). Yes a charter bus would count. [Late news: I was assured by one of my Twitter followers that they took only 2.5 hours to get here and 2 hours to get back to Kingston.]
