Final Score:...SC Toronto.......4.......York Region Shooters....3......
Series tied 4-4 on two leg aggregate. York Region Shooters win 4-2 on Penalties.

Attendance was about 100 people which swelled to 160 by the end as permit holders were waiting for the game to end so their rec league games could start. The night was cold and with a strong wind from the north effecting goalie punts. It eventually blew over two of the corner flags.

This game was the most exciting CSL game I've seen since the 2005 Final when Oakville Blue Devils won in extra time against York Region Shooters. This game was full of end to end action at different times of the game. SC Toronto used their 'best' lineup tonight as the York University team which about half the team plays for was not scheduled to play until Saturday. They had to play with ten men in the two periods of overtime because of the second Yellow card to John Louis Perruzza near the end of regulation time.

The two calls for awarding YRS Penalty kicks looked weak especially when played over in slow motion on the television broadcast. Ironic or not that referee Gianni Facchini awarded a Penalty kick against Antonio Zupan. Last year Zupan playing for Hamilton Croatia in a game against Toronto Croatia pushed Zupan after being ejected and the game was abandoned and Zupan was eventually given a one year suspension. There were a lot of deserved Yellow cards on both teams.

Best non-scoring chances were at 107 minutes when SCT Adrian Pena took a 15 yard blast from the left that was off the top of the bar near the left post. 113 minutes had Pena take a cornerkick from the left that was cleared back to him and his recross was cleared and a 22 yard shot down middle by SCT Jarek Whiteman had the flying goalie block on the left post and the rebound was flagged offside.

Shooters win the series and as the eighth seed will play their one game semi-final game on the road.
