Final Score:…Portuguese Supra………0………….Windsor Border Stars……….4……….
Attendance was about 50 on this very hot and humid day. This round of the Open Canada Cup was only announced on Tuesday so there was a minimum of publicity for this game.
This game had the Border Stars bring only three substitutions including team owner Pat Hilton listed as one of them. Supra started off strong enough and I would have imagined especially in the second half, the weather would have worn the Border Stars down. All that changed in the 23rd minute when it was the Supra who’d be ‘shorthanded’ the rest of the game. The rest of the game if they pressed, they risked being caught short at the back on a counter attack. Supra owner Isaac Cambos thought his team should have won and blamed his goalie for the mistakes that cost them the game.
Supra’s Gavin Fuller melted down in the second half soon after being injured at 51 minutes. Two minutes later he was Yellow carded for arguing with referee’s assistant Kim Babb about a throw-in. He was wisely replaced one minute later or I was sure he would have been ejected as he just didn’t stop shouting.
Anthony Santilli earned the shutout for the Border Stars. Many of these second half stops were from 20 yards or more so didn’t give him any trouble.
This big-score win by Windsor almost assures them of not having to play a Wild Card match on the Labour Day weekend against the host London City side on the Friday night before a semi-final Saturday and the final holiday Monday. Trois-Rivieres Attack did not have to worry as they beat London City earlier this weekend 6-0 and so had the best plus-minus record. London City immediately gets a second chance as hosts by forcing a Wild Card game. (As the later Shooters vs. Astros game ended 1-0, Windsor did avoid the extra Friday game). The British Columbia team that played down in their province to this point was always excluded from being in the Wild Card game.
Interesting that even this round was not completely random as Supra Victor Cardosa mentioned before the game how he had a choice of renting Centennial Stadium as a host for the second round or risk being drawn for a road game in Trois-Rivieres and the greater expense of transport and a hotel stay for his team.
