Brampton Guardian: Hitmen Sharp
Friday July 26, 2002.

Brampton Hitmen were sharp as they dropped London City 4-1 Sunday at Victoria Park Stadium in a Canadian Professional Soccer League first-round Cup game.

The victory sent the Hitmen into a second-round contest against Durham Flames, date still to be arranged.

Coach Steve Nijjar was pleased with the win but would still like to get more consistency from the club.

"I only took over the team five games ago. We still have some work to do,'' said Nijjar, who is also the founder and a co-owner of the Hitmen and recently replaced head coach Ed McLaughlin.

Brampton got goals from Milodrag Akmadzic, Yusif Deem Jamamdo, Jeff Sousa and Kurt Mella.

Hitmen are fifth in the CPSL West with a record of 2-5-2 for eight points. They lead sixth place London City by one point. However Brampton does have an opportunity to gain some ground this weekend.

Tonight, Hitmen are at Durham Flames who are last in the East with a 1-5-2 record.

Sunday, Brampton hosts London City once again in a league game at 7:30 p.m. at Victoria Park.

Nijjar says the team knows what it has to do to win but he is concerned about overconfidence after beating London so handily.
