*I only saw the second half of this game as I drove to Kinsmen Park in Pickering and found there was no one on the soccer field where they often play. Somewhere between a 11:00am league tweet and a new tweet at 12:00pm the venue was changed. So it happened for my 38th League 1 Ontario game that I get faked out to the wrong stadium or a cancelled game. Thanks for some parents, team officials and game officials for helping me piece together the first half.
Attendance was about 80 people on this evening game. As an indoor facility there was no concern about the weather although a light rain did start outside soon after the game ended. Another clue I should have taken from certain tweets was the announced post game fundraiser '9pm presentation "JERASSIC WORLD"' (sic) which would have been tough to pull off outdoors except at a drive-in theatre.
Master's scored three times in ten minutes in the second half in a concentration lapse by DUFC. DUFC were able to swing the momentum back in their favour but the own goal seemed to deflate Master's and DUFC had the best chances after that to increase their lead with some counterattacks caused by Master's pressing for a tieing goal.
The win moves Durham up to fourth place with a record of 11 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses for 35 points in 20 games. Tonight they rise from seventh passing Sigma FC and Woodbridge Strikers. They have only two games left so can't pass Oakville Blue Devils who have 46 points and are the strong favourites for the championship.
Master's record falls to 0 wins, 3 ties, and 15 losses. They are tied for eleventh in the twelve team league with Sanjaxx Lions. Sanjaxx have one win for 3 points and that was over Master's. Those teams are scheduled to play each other once again on October 3rd which will decide the wooden spoon if there is one.
