Date: 07-17-94 (15:47) Number: 22223 of 22223 (Refer# NONE) To: ALL From: ROBIN GLOVER Subj: APSL Toronto vs Montreal Read: (N/A) Status: PUBLIC MESSAGE (Echo) Conf: U-SOCCER (4241) Read Type: GENERAL Time out again from those hundreds of messages about the World Cup and onto the APSL game of Friday night (July 15/94). Toronto Rockets (blue shorts, socks, shirts, white numbers) 1 Pat Onstad 2 Carl Fletcher 4 Peter Sarantopoulos 6 Dino Lopez 3 Jack Copetti 8 Lucio Ianiero 10 Tony Nocita 13 Pat Sullivan 17 Velemir Crljen 7 Billy Dalombo 20 Gino DiFlorio Montreal Impact (white socks, shirts, black shorts & numbers) 29 Paolo Ceccarelli 16 Jason Devos 8 John Limniatis 12 Patrick Diotte 3 Patrice Ferri 4 Nick DeSantos 7 Nick Dasovic 6 Marco Rizi 17 Kevin Holness 10 Jean Harbor 13 Phillip Gyau referee Russ Hepworth (brutal) linesmen Mortimer & Baetzo 27 min Yellow card to Rockets 8? in the wall for not giving 10 yards. He was actually the last guy to come into the 5 man wall so had nothing to do with the set up. 29 min Yellow card to Impact 8 Ianiero for hockey hip check on Crijen although 20 seconds earlier ball had gone out of bounds, linesman flag was up but ref waved it off (!) after noticing it 10 seconds later. 31 min yellow/red card to Impact 6 Marco Rizi for swearing after he was given a yellow for being tripped/dived. Maybe the ref didn't like guys who looked liked skinheads. 1st half overall: Montreal had the territorial edge until Rizi was red carded then it was more evenly matched. The teams got breaks of three on seven as neither risked rushing more of their midfielders in the scoring area. Halftime Montreal sub 1 Pat Harrington for Ceccarelli in net. Ceccarelli (former Rocket and last years Blizzard goalie) was hurt in the first half after a goalmouth crash but finished the half. Actually while he was down Harbor rabbit punched Sarantoupoulos at the other end of the field. I didn't see it as I was watching the other end of the field. The 4th official was but the ref ignored him. (confirmed on Radio 1430 on Sunday morning). 60 min Montreal sub 20 Mauro Biello replaces Gyau. 76 min Toronto GOAL 13 Sullivan takes a kick from 20 yards out. The shot bends like the letter 'S' as it bends one way then the other and catches the goalie backing up and gets his fingers on it. 78 min Montreal sub 11 Lloyd Barker replaces Holness 85 min Montreal PENALTY shot as forward hauled down. Canadian National player Limniatis finally steps up to the ball and sends a low medium shot to the right corner but Onstad dives to that side and stops it! 87 min Toronto sub 16 Frank Cardona replaces DiFlorio 88 min yellow card for a tackle from behind. Oops didn't even write what team got this last card! Second half overall: The Rockets gradually took over in number of chances and had the more chances to score. Corners 1st half Montreal 3 Toronto 1 2nd half Montreal 2 Toronto 2? Final Score Toronto Rockets 1 Montreal Impact 0 Toronto gets 7 points (6 points fot the win, 1 point for the goal) Montreal gets nothing. attendance: not announced but looked a lot less than last week. Maybe 1000. celebrities: Canadian coach Bob Lenaduzzi who's in town for the half time shows for TSN broadcasts took a bow at the centreline. Dale Barnes (The Fan 1430--AM station in Toronto who hosts a Sunday morning soccer news show).
