Final Score:.........Brampton Hitmen............1................Vaughan Sun Devils...............0...........

Attendance was about 175 on this cool day with a bright sun in the south. The game was broadcast live by Rogers Cablesystems to the London area and taped for rebroadcast for other Ontario communities. The generator they use for power was spitting out some bad carbon monoxide that bothered me.

This was a tough tackling game on the wet grass. The game really turned around with the Red card so early in the game and the Hitmen could grind out more chances with a man advantage. Sun Devils were also playing without Elvis Thomas and Bayete Smith who were away at a baby Christianing.

Goalie Roy Blanche earned the shutout for the Hitmen without having to make any tough saves. Defenders surrounded any Sun Devils players when they got close to the net and Vaughan didn't push enough men upfield so they wouldn't be caught short at the back.

Coach/owner Steve Nijjar was banned from the bench this weekend. London City owner/announcer only took one shot at the missing team here at about the 22 minute mark. "Those who are wondering where Ottawa is...they're still in Ottawa". New MPP elect Chris Bentley drew the winning raffle tickets.
