Brampton Guardian: Hitmen Reach CPSL Cup Semifinal

Hitmen reach CPSL Cup semifinal round

The Brampton Hitmen (in yellow) rallied for a 2-2 draw against the Durham Flames in Canadian Professional Soccer League Cup action on Sunday. The win gave the Hitmen a 7-3 win in the two-game total goals series and allows them to advance to the Cup semifinals.

The Brampton Hitmen have advanced to the Canadian Professional Soccer League Cup semifinals after tying the Durham Flames 2-2 at Victoria Park Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Hitmen won the two-game total-goal series 7-3 after trouncing the Flames in Durham one week ago.

On Sunday, however, it was a different Flames team that took to the field as they played the Hitmen even, and even carried a 2-1 led into the final 10 minutes.

But the Hitmen responded with the equalizer from Yousif Jawando just eight minutes from completion.

Kurt Mella had opened the scoring for the Hitmen with his seventh of the season just 13 minutes into the contest but the Flames rallied to tie the contest late in the first half.

Durham took the lead midway through the second half setting up Jawando's game-tying marker.

The Hitmen host the Metro Lions tomorrow evening at Victoria Park Stadium beginning at 8 p.m. and are back at home again on Sunday to tangle with Toronto Croatia at 7:30 p.m.
