Final Score:...Kingston FC.......1.......SC Waterloo........3.........

Attendance started out at about 100 when the game started but picked up as people arrived for the First Division Championship game that was scheduled to start at 2:30pm. The weather was very cold with a blinding bright sun from the south.

This final was held on a neutral site but because Toronto Croatia had finished first in the league while SC Waterloo were sixth, Croatia was considered the Home team.

This game was scheduled for silver ball overtime if the game had been tied. (two 15 minute extra time then Penalty kicks if the game was still tied). I was muttering "Please no overtime" during this and the First Division game because I knew my feet would be numb if these games went any longer than the 90 minutes of regulation time. There was no television coverage...this is Cogeco territory (not Rogers) and they are a sponsor of Niagara United but for whatever reason they were not here.

SC Waterloo were playing both Championship games today. Starting goalie Zoran Pusica was the back up for the First Division game but not used. Starting forward Mohammed-Ali Heydarpour and substitute defender Thomas Sackor were both listed as subs for the next game but neither was used. Substitute midfielder Edward Syllie came into this game at 59 minutes but did not get into the next game as a sub.

SC Waterloo limited Toronto Croatia chances especially at the end although only their second goal at 88 minutes put the game away.

Referee Ramee Arbaji gave out three Yellow cards that I counted--all to Toronto Croatia plus the Red card near the end of the game to an assistant coach on the Croatia bench, he had good control over this game.

I must admit it was the first 2nd Division game I've seen all year as I don't have time to follow this league, I was very entertained.

The win was a good day's start for SC Waterloo. We'd see if the momentum would lift the first team for their Championship game a few minutes later. Interesting also that the SC Waterloo coaching staff for this game is the same for their 'first team' while Toronto Croatia B has a completely different set of coaches for their main team.
