FC HAMILTON CROATIA AHEAD 2-1 OVER TFC ACADEMY....Razumovic strikes winner

A goal at 84 minutes by FC Hamilton Croatia defender Ivan Razumovic gave his side a 2-1 victory over TFC Academy in a quarterfinal 1st leg playoff game at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke, the only game on the CSL schedule Wednesday night.

It was the fourth game of the home and away quarterfinal series, the first three played Tuesday night.

Hamilton Croatia took the lead at 32 minutes from a low drive from 20 yards by forward Preston Corporal, a 1-0 score at halftime.

TFC Academy tied the game on a goal at 51 minutes by defender Ashton Morgan and the home side had an opportunity to go in front at 78 minutes when awarded a penalty kick by referee Justin Tasev for a tripping incident inside the box. The kick was taken by Keith Makubui, but saved by Hamilton goalkeeper James Melford.

Hamilton had the edge in the second half and took the lead at 84 minutes, a goal by Razumovic that turned out to be the winner, a 2-1 score in favour of FC Hamilton Croatia.

It's a total points, two-game quarterfinal series and if tied on points it's total goals that decide the team to advance to the semifinal.
