Final Score:.....Windsor Border Stars.....5......Capital City Ambassadors......1.......
Attendance was about 100 persons on this humid afternoon with a bright sun in the northwest.
An official from the Ambassadors vowed never to return to the Open Cup because of the CPSLcentricity of the calls especially the last three minutes of the first half which was the turning point of the game. An official from London City apologized to him for the choppy field. Apparently the new president of the German-Canadian club is not a big soccer fan and wanted to cut expenses so Cove Road has no full time groundskeeper this year. A heavy rainfall would have turned the goalmouths into the puddly mess that cancelled last Sunday's league game in Brampton.
