Final Score:.....Pro Stars SA.......1........Toronto FC...........3.......

Attendance was about 80 on this hot evening with the sun still coming out until it set below the tree line before the second half started.

Referee Geoff Gamble gave out no cards tonight that I noticed in a game that was wide open and pretty clean with just freekicks being given out except for the Penalty. All other falls/knockdowns in the box were waved off.

ProStars had Leaford Allen once again as their lone striker and he was called offside more times then he had shots on net. He was having a tough night as he ran over when he saw the sign board held up by the fourth official and realized it was #10 of TFCA who was leaving the match at 79 minutes. Teammate Zachary Gowlett missed a shot into the empty net at 59 minutes when the TFCA goalie dropped a freekick catch and he partly whiffed on the shot while behind the goalie which would have tied the game.

ProStars had too many incidents of guys standing around both offensively and in defence which even drew scorn from their own fans. Standing around! It was the team trainer and the referee (rather than a teammate) who helped Thomas Winski limp off the field after the third TFCA goal as the players appeared stunned by that goal.

TFCA team head coach Stuart Neely had raced over from the Toronto FC II game right after their 2-1 win over Richmond Kickers so he had quite a successful day.

Pro Stars record slips to 4 wins, 2 draws, 9 losses for 14 points and tied for ninth with Kingston who also lost today. TFCA record improves to 6 wins, 1 draw, 8 losses for 19 points and they climb to seventh place passing Windsor in the standings whose game last night was rained out. TFCA next two games are against Sanjaxx Lions and Master's FA who are the cellar dwellers so I look for a further climb in the table.

Victoria Park had their scoreboard working tonight for the first time this season that I've attended (my third game in 2015 at this stadium) but the clock froze at 58:59 and wouldn't advance further. Well back to wristwatch time for me.
