GALAXY'S FIRST WIN................St. Catharines overtake North York Astros, 3-1, and Shooters blank London City 3-0

Brantford Galaxy were full marks for their first CSL win, a 2-1 victory over Toronto Croatia, St. Catharines defeated North York Astros 3-1, and York Region Shooters blanked London City 3-0, three games in the CSL Sunday.

It was a fast paced, even encounter during the first half at Lamport Stadium in Toronto, a game relocated from Etobicoke’s Centennial Stadium, that was scoreless until former Hajuk Split midfielder Zoran Roglic swing a strong cross from the right wing for Miodrag Andelkovic to head the Galaxy's opening goal at the 44th minute mark., a 1-0 score at half time.

Five minutes into the second half Toronto Croatia midfielder Braeden Krampert tied the score 1-1 when he hooked a loose ball into the net and at 71 minutes Brantford midfielder Ranko Golijanin struck the winner.

Toronto Croatia lost defender Sven Arapovic when shown the red card after receiving a second yellow at 87 minutes.

York Region Shooters (previously Italia Shooters) made it 2 for 2 in their convincing 3-0 victory over London City after winning their opener 1-0 on May 16 and it was forward Geron Duport who struck against St. Catharines Wolves after just two minutes in the second game.

Aundrae Rollins made it 2-0 at the 76th minute mark and striker Jason Di Thomasis scored the third at 83 minutes to secure the 3-0 win.

St. Catharines Wolves overcame an early 1-0 deficit to win their game over the Astros at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York. Nahyar Kohbad drove the ball past St. Catharines goalkeeper Claudio Perri from close range to put the home side ahead 1-0, but the lead was short-lived when the Garden City team tied the score one minute later. Matthew Cain scored his first of two goals at the 3rd minute mark and Cain put his side 2-1 up at 25 minutes.

Simon Murphy made it 3-1 for St. Catharines, he headed past Astros' goalkeeper Nelson Zamora from 12 yards at the 50th minute mark and that goal held up for a 3-1 win at the final whistle.

CSL action resumes with four games at Toronto, Milton, Hamilton and London on Friday and nine games over next weekend.
