Final Score:.........Serbian White Eagles..............3.................York Region Shooters...............0..............

Attendance was about 200 people on this warm evening with the threat of rain all day which resulted during the game with a few drips but after the game a big rainstorm hit. There were two CSL games further west and south of here that were actually cut short by the storm. This game was broadcast live by Rogers Community Channel.

The White Eagles came out flying and put the game away in the first 20 minutes with three goals. Club official Dragan said the team put on all their 'fast' players at the beginning to jump start the team. The veteran/leading scorer/past captain Sasa Viciknez wasn't brought into the game until the 67 minute mark. He is slower but a set piece specialist. I saw defender Taylor Lord make some long runs along the wing. He played with midfielder Milos Scepanovic in the Francophone Games held in Lebanon last year.

Milos Kocic earned the shutout for the White Eagles. He made his first start for the MLS Toronto FC and a shutout in the Nutrilite Canadian Championship game on Wednesday night playing against Vancouver Whitecaps. He's number three on the TFC depth chart at goaltender and needs the extra work.

There's no reason to worry that TFC Academy has locked up all the good young players. Speedy Stefan Vukovic came on at 60 minutes and had some chances and forced the YRS player to take a Red card to prevent a breakaway. Dragan said he's only 17 and from Hamilton.

Shooters had one glorious chance to get back into the game at 52 minutes when Geron Duporte took a 20 yard freekick from the sharp left side and the ball spun backwards off a defender trying to clear the ball and popped up for YRS Kadian Lecky to head the ball from 4 yards that the flying goalie Milos Kocic blocked with his hand then, when he and the ball fell to the ground, swatted the ball out for YRS Jason DeThomasis to kick a 4 yarder that hit the bar and deflected out and a defender made the clearance from the box.

Coming into the game, York Region Shooters were in first place of the 13 teams with a 3 win, 1 tie record and the Serbian White Eagles were in last but only because they had played just one game so far in the season which they'd lost. Most fans would believe that both teams will end up in the top four by the end of the season.
