Final Score:………North York Astros………2………..Italia Shooters………1………….
Attendance was about 250 people with lots of children's teams and their parents in attendance. They played mini games at halftime and acted as ball retrievers. A second week in a row with boosts to the normal attendances from earlier this year. This was a hot day with a win from the west.
The Shooters didn’t look like being down a player for the entire second half bothered them as they had more chances to score than the Astros. Selvin Lemmie got sent in some through balls but was usually called offside.
Both goalies had to be sharp to keep the score down. Joshua Lemos is supposedly the sixth or seventh goalie the Astros have used this year.
I was surprised to see Rick Titus starting as a defender for the Shooters. He wasn’t at the MLS Toronto FC game yesterday but was scheduled to play in the Ontario Cup Final later today with his team Real Toronto against London AEK. He was subbed off at 22 minutes after getting beaten twice by Selvin Lammie. He was holding onto Lammie on the first goal and gave him about an impossible angle to shoot at. Anything more and he’d have pulled him down for a Penalty kick. One minute after that opening goal, Lammie got away a shot from the left from 15 yards that the goalie palmed through his box wide right for a cornerkick. Titus didn’t look like he took the subbing graciously at all from head coach Carmine Isaaco who was behind the bench for the first time after serving a suspension.
