Final Score:..........Toronto Supra...........2...............Windsor Border Stars..........0...........

Attendance was about 100 on this warm evening with the sun still shining from the north west for the first half. Supra had been trying for a breakaway much of the game but were foiled by offside flags so they finally pulled one of at the end of the game. Supra scoring leader Adrian Llewellyn needed to be subbed at 28 minutes when he fell while stretching for a shot at the WBS 30 yard line. Francisco Santos came into the game and missed a few chances until the final two minutes of the game. Daniel Nascimento, Martin Peraza, and Danny Amaral could have made things easier if they'd have scored earlier in the game on their chances.

Border Stars must have set a record for the number of corner kicks they were awarded especially in the second half. Supra goalie Adrian Ibanez earned the shutout with some good stops but the Border Stars had enough chances to win with Mike Sesar, David Dwaihy, and Jeremy Harkins missing chances. Aaron Byrd missed the easiest after Mike Sesar got away on the left side and crossed into the TS box which had Byrd kick the bar over the bar from only 5 yards at 73 minutes. The team brought five subs for this game (and they play in Oakville tomorrow). This certainly gave them more choice than the early season game against Toronto Croatia when they had the minimum eleven players and played short when one of them was injured. Surprisingly they won that game.

Along the subway line, Glasgow Rangers (Scotland) were playing a CPSL All Star team at the old site of the demolished Varsity Stadium. I had enough warning to go to that game after a change in venue the day before but chose to come here. I was expecting an un-numbered sweatshirt, frequent substitutes kick around. Photos on the Rangers website show both teams were wearing uniforms. I wondered the composition of the All Stars being that these two teams had their full rosters, and Brampton were in Laval (Montreal) for a game tonight taking four teams out of the running to supply players. There was a game the night before and three games on Sunday so I wasn't sure who was going to play. I asked the DeThomasis' who were at this game scouting for their team Vaughan Shooters and Tony DeThomasis said he didn't sanction any of his players to take part. That makes sense as the Shooters are in Laval tomorrow.

No-uniform numbers games are hard to report. I actually experienced a bit of that tonight because the Windsor ladies team lost 1-0 on a late goal to the lady Supra team. Most of the Windsor team were in just unnumbered t-shirts. That game had a similar plot to this game so both Windsor teams could compare notes on the bus ride home.
