Press Release September 28, 2000
second title. London City goes down 8-0
Toronto Olympians won their second CPSL Championship last night thrashing London City 8-0 to win the League Championship. Although they were tied with St. Catharines Roma Wolves on points, Olympians win the Title on goal difference of +21. Gus Kouzmanis scored a hat trick for the Olympians and John Matus netted two. Other goal scorers included Biatte Smith, Ron Belfon and Pavand Mossavat.
Toronto Olympians who have come under much criticism heading into the final CPSL stretch for their recent signings of Tilley and Titus are now set to repeat the clean sweep of all the hardware. Olympians coach David Gee commented that "we were in favour of a deadline date for signing players, but if the board does not vote in favour of it, then the opportunity to sign players was an option that we exercised to strengthen our team and defend our Championships."
This weekend brings to a close the CPSL 2000 season and everyone will be gunning for the Olympians. The Primus Cup opens on Friday night with the host team London City playing in a Wild Card match against Glen Shields Sun Devils. The winner gets the right to take on the Olympians in the semi-final on Saturday.
In the other semi-final, St. Catharines Roma Wolves will battle Toronto Croatia (who will be missing some of their starters due to the fact that Paul Moore is getting married that day). Both St. Catharines and Toronto Croatia more than held their own against the Olympians in the CPSL League Cup Finals last weekend at Birchmount. City and the Sun Devils will be the long shots, but who knows, the ball is round and on that given day any team could upset the powerhouse Toronto Olympians.
For those soccer fans in south-western Ontario, why not come out this weekend to the Cove, catch some great soccer action, lots of great food and ice cold beverages (!!!) will be on hand, plus tons of give-a-ways for those in attendance.
