Final Score:...North Mississauga Panthers.....2.....Pro Stars FC....2.......
A tweet I received said the night game of Darby FC against Sigma FC was cancelled because of the high winds. It was at the Whitby Soccer Dome !? Today details were provided that the dome roof hadn't blown off but was damaged inside. Light standards attached to the ceiling had fallen. I switched to Plan B which was to catch North Mississauga against Pro Stars FC at Hershey Centre Field #2. It's great to live in the GTA as there are choices for a quick change of mind for alternate plans. Hershey Centre Number 1 has a dome still not taken down from the winter...yep looked alright but...that's what Sigma FC uses and the Panthers use #2 open air. So the game starts and down comes a misty rain and it eventually turns into a torrential downpour driving the 150 fans down to 60 by the start of the second half. Result was another surprise this weekend as Pro Stars earned a 2-2 tie. They were the last place team in the league last season with only one win. A tweet from the league came through and said their gate was 112. Triston Watson opened the scoring at 27 minutes for NMP (he scored the lone goal in last week's win against Alliance United). Aleksander Zwierzynski scored at 42 and 56 minutes for Pro Stars but Rahim Thorpe responded at 59 minutes right in the strongest of the rain. I had finessed my way across the field to cower under the DJ tent with my notebook (that's a pen and paper kids--not a computer). Pro Stars Silas Obeng played only five minutes coming in at 78 minutes and subbed out by 83 minutes. I remember him beaten on one run but that was a very short appearance. He didn't look injured when he was subbed off. Rocket Robin email@example.com Twitter @RocketRobin01
