CPSL Weekend Review
WIZARDS ARE MAGICAL IN CPSL DEBUT
New entry Ottawa thumps Brampton Hitmen 4-0

Ottawa Wizards conjured up a potent mixture in their inaugural game for the return of professional soccer to the Capital city and it was Brampton Hitmen on the receiving end of a 4-0 shutout at Oz Stadium in Ottawa on Saturday. Victor Mendes led the way for the Wizards with two goals, Kwame Telemaque and Kevin Nelson adding singles. Ottawa went 
unbeaten in a back-to-back weekend with a 1-1 tie with Toronto Supra. Abraham Osman scored for the Wizards, while Ryan Gamble scored for the visitors.

Other results in a busy weekend of games in the CPSL saw London City score their first win of the season, a 1-0 squeaker on a second half goal by Erald Popa to defeat North York Astros at Cove Road on Friday night, while at the same time at the pictureque Memorial Park in Mississauga, mayor Hazel McCallion made it clear to everyone she was happy to see professional soccer come to her community while performing the celebrity kick for a game that gave Croatia a 4-2 win over York Region Shooters. All six goals were scored in the first half, two by Peter Curic and singles by Nikola Andrijevic and Joe Bucic. Robert Black and Eric Ranaldo scored for the Shooters.

Montreal Dynamites edged Brampton Hitmen, 2-1, at the Claude Robillard Stadium in Montreal on Sunday, Bruno Nve scoring a winning second half goal for the Dynamites following team-mate Leo Incollingo's penalty marker. Brampton had earlier opened the scoring on a goal by Yusif Jawamb. Later in the day, Durham Flames defeated Glen Shields Sun Devils, 4-1, at the Civic Stadium in Oshawa.

Terry Lazarus scored twice, with Craig Patton and Jim Kuzmanovski once for the Flames, all after Fitzroy Powell opened the scoring to give Glen Shields a 1-0 first half lead.

North York Astros and St. Catharines Roma Wolves played to a 1-1 deadlock at Esther Shiner Stadium on Sunday night, but the point was enough to put the Wolves top of the standings. Astros' forward Dejan Gluscevic opened the scoring for a 1-0 half time lead, but Gary Hughes tied the game for Wolves eight minutes from time.
