Final Score: North York Talons 1 Oakville Canadian Westerns 5

Attendance was only about forty people. There were actually more people for the kiddies game because of all the parents in the stands but they left because of the drizzle.

Talons are a new franchise who have an ethnic link with Jamaica. It's an all 'black' team but then Oakville was an all 'white' team except for Tony Morrison. Oakville is also a new franchise but has some CNSL veterans in its lineup.

Someone who saw the Talons lose to 4-1 to London City on Friday night said they used their other goalie. This goalie didn't look sharp but the whole defense was shaky.

Esther Shiner stadium is where the Toronto Jets played last year (that team merged with Toronto Italia). The Parks and Recreation run concession stand wasn't open but there was a table set up with homemade Caribbean food. Also some giant speakers set up to play reggae music between halfs.
