Final Score:…..Italia Shooters………..0…………….Trois-Rivieres Attak………..3………..
Attendance was about 300 on this overcast evening with the temperature starting cool and getting colder as the game wore on. There was no gate charge for tickets tonight but everyone was requested to donate to the Italian earthquake relief fund.
The Attak roster looks completely different from last year and is much younger that the 2008 edition. They never ran out of energy despite playing one man down for the last hour of the game.
Simon Lagarde earned the shutout for the Attak making nothing much more than routine saves.
The Shooters roster started with veterans Kadian Lecky and Stalin Cardenas on the bench and coming in at the start of the second half to add some offence to their team. New captain of the Shooters is Joey Todaro who has returned to the team after three years absence. His brother Frank Todaro was listed as a substitute. Brothers Elkana Mayard and Pierre Rudolph Mayard were both starters for the Attak tonight.
New head coach for the Shooters this year is Roberto Pug. The Attak head coach new for this year is Darippe Eullaffroy. Former head coach Marc Dos Santos from two years ago was promoted to the Attak’s parent team Montreal Impact after the Impact lost to Toronto FC on Tuesday night.
In a CSL Reserve League exhibition game held before the main game started, Brampton Dixie Lions beat Woodbridge Italia FC (Strikers) 2-1.
Trois-Rivieres Attak plays in the only other CSL game this weekend with a game on Saturday at 3:00pm at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York at 3:00pm against TFC Academy. The game will be taped and broadcast at 8:00pm on Rogers Community Channel. TFC Academy coach Jason Bent was in the stands scouting for tomorrow’s game. If Attak can get a result in that game starting only 17 hours after tonight’s game ended, they would be my favorites to retain their National Division title. The Attak are the only team that plays two-games-in-a-weekend and that is to cut down on the number of times this season they have to travel to the Greater Toronto area.
