Final Score:........Portugal FC.........0............Serbian White Eagles..........0............

Attendance was about 200 on this warm evening with the sun out in the first half. Included were boys from the Toronto Eagles and their parents. The crowd was up to 250 by the time the game was over as more people arrived for their late night permit.

Facilities weren't good at this City of Toronto controlled facility as there was no working scoreboard until the second half. The clock was frozen at 5:44. Shutouts were earned by Mike Silva for Portugal FC and Milos Kocic of Serbian White Eagles. Both were called on to make some key saves.

At 20 minutes on a set of PFC cornerkicks, PFC Massimo Mirabelli took from the the left that had Andrea Lombardo head a 12 yard shot that the goalie palmed over the net.

Best White Eagles chances came in the first half with speedy Shawn Brown at 26 minutes rushing on the right wing and crossing from the end line and Stefan Vukovic headed a 12 yarder that the goalie had to fly over to catch. At 43 minutes Vukovic rolled a forward pass from 22 yards on the right andand a charging Brown pushes the ball over the end line when he couldn't cut in a shot from 3 yards on the right post. Milos Scepanovic took most of the cornerkicks and freekicks and they were always dangerous.

At 81 minutes White Eagles Taylor Lord made a great scissor poke check to get the ball from a PFC forward on the end line preventing a cross. This was the second time during the game he'd come away with all-ball on one of his checks. During injury time, PFC Omari Morris was on a rush to the ball on the right and he rolled a cross to center and a charging Sergio DeLuca blasted a low 15 yard kick up the middle that the goalie smothered on the last chance of the night for either team.

Rick Oliveira was the referee and he had very few cards to give out for this very open game.

A tie was a fair result for these teams as the game was very even. A scoreless draw wasn't dull on a night like this.
