Final Score:........Woodbridge Strikers..........1........Kingston Clippers.......0.......

Attendance was around 50 on this hot and humid evening. Although it is a holiday weekend there were no children in the crowd.

Strikers held a wide possession and territorial advantage through most of the game. Their problem was they missed about a dozen chances and the game was never safe as the Clippers always had the chance to tie. Thats sounds a lot like the Canada vs Belize national team game on Friday.

Matt George earned the shutout for the Strikers without having much to do except come forward to break up the odd through ball pass and catch a few crosses. That also compares with the Canada vs Belize game with Canadian goalie Kenny Stamatopoulos having even less to do.

Referee Alexis Vaughan gave out only three Yellow cards tonight (two to Woodbridge) in a game that never got rough. She also scheduled a water break in each half. Clippers were caught offside about three times late in the game when they were pressing.

Best non-scoring chances were at 16 minutes when WS Adrian Gallo rolled a through ball pass to WS Nicholas Chiarot who has his 12 yard shot deflected over the net by a retreating, sliding defender. 28 minutes had WS Darian Bygrave pass from 22 yards on the left that somehow bounced between players and the diving goalie pushed the ball wide right of the post and WS Jesse Andoh took an 8 yard shot that was partially blocked and Bygrave blasted an off balance 12 yard shot from the left high and wide right of the net. 35 minutes and WS Joseph Jackson had a 15 yard shot stopped by the diving goalie at 6 yards on a sprawling save. 66 minutes had WS Victor Munoz run to the left end line but he pushed the ball out of play as he was trying to deke the goalie. 73 minutes had WS Munoz take a 45 yard freekick from the left that had WS Jackson leap in a crowd of players and head a 12 yarder downward that the goalie caught on the bounce. Injury time had a WS player chip a 15 yard shot behind the goalie but the retreating KC Eric Koskins got back to clear the ball off the line.

The win vaults Woodbridge from sixth place to a tie for fourth with one game in hand on Sigma FC who have the same mumber of points. Their record improves to 11 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses for 34 points. This has been a very productive weekend for them as they won 2-0 on the road against Vaughan Azzurri on Friday night. Strikers have games in hand on all the teams above them.

Kingston's record falls to 3 wins, 5 draws, and 11 losses for 14 points and they stay in tenth in the twelve team league. They have a return trip of three hours home in the same yellow schoolbus that they had earlier in the year. Well, no school tomorrow on Labour Day.

This game was recorded by Rogers Television and will be broadcast on Monday night at 7:00pm on the local community channel in Vaughan. This stadium is about six blocks north of the border of Toronto so it won't be shown there. It is however also being shown on the Rogers TV Sports channel 369 so I will be able to watch it afterall and it will make a nice change from the 20 hours of test pattern usually shown. It will also be interesting to see if the halftime interview with the commentator and Strikers goalie Matt George will be heard. The PA guy must have turned the volume of the canned music down from '11' to '10' on his dial. Well if the interview started one song earlier we have heard a song with the lyrics something like "my girlfriend's a stripper".
