KINGSTON ADVANCE......narrow victory puts division winner in semifinals

Kingston FC may be finding each game a greater challenge as the season moves 
through the CSL playoffs, but it’s a sure bet head coach Colm Muldoom has 
factored that into his way of negotiating the difficult path that leads 
to the overall CSL Championship.

For the group that boasts the first professional soccer team to play out 
of the picturesque eastern Ontario community, it has not been an easy journey 
and Sunday’s 2-1 victory over a Serbian White Eagles, winner of the trophy 
in 2008 with experienced players seasoned in European soccer, it was no exception.

It was a squeaker, a scoreless first half with a Kingston goal by midfielder 
Nathan Klemencic six minutes into the second half cancelled out by a Serbian 
Eagles goal by midfielder Stefan Racic just two minutes from the final whistle.

The game went into 30 minutes of extra time and while the home side had a decided 
edge in the second half, there was no guarantee that would continue. 

Muldoon understood some time ago it would probably take other players to sustain 
the earlier success attributable to striker Guillaume Surot, Jason Massie and 
Catalin Lichioiu, a trio to account for 47 goals during the regular season.

Holding a 1-1 precarious tie, the Irishman brought in Kihara Waiganjo to replace 
Klemencic – the opening goalscorer – and after 10 minutes of overtime the talented 
25 year-old headed in the game winner just three minutes after stepping on the field. 
The 2-1 lead held until the final whistle.

“Basically, our team delivered a performance, created many chances which we should’ve 
finished to make the game easier,” Muldoon said. “Our conditioning took over, [we] 
created more chances but it just wouldn’t go in for us – we hit the wood work 
numerous times. We made our own fortune and we got what we deserved in the end.”

Kingston FC has announced its CSL Championship semifinal game against London City
