Result of the Friday July 13, 2012 CSL game between
SC Toronto and Niagara United played at Lamport
Stadium in Toronto at 8:00pm.
14 min...SCT Jarek Whiteman GOAL...SCT Jonathan Osorio
from 55 yards on left sends in pass to Whiteman at
25 yards on right who chests ball down and shoots
12 yard roller into left corner of net past sliding
goalie John DeLuca.
19 min...SCT Alon Badat GOAL...SCT Jonathan Osorio
sends in high pass to the right for Badat who chests
it down and he takes 15 yard shot into high left
corner of net.
85 min...SCT Kyle Hall GOAL...SCT Brennan McNicoll
rushes on right and rolls centering pass to Hall
in alone to take 15 yard shot that sliding goalie
gets piece of at 6 yards and ball deflects into low
right corner of net.
Final Score:.......SCT Toronto...3......
Attendance was about 80 that about doubled by the
end of the game for permit holders waiting for
their game to start. Weather was hot and humid
but it was overcast until it got dark after having
the sun out most of the day.
Both early goals were assisted by Johnathan Osorio
who I hadn't seen before this game. He's stepped
in as their new dead ball specialist. Whiteman
scored at 14 minutes and wears #14. Badat wears #19
and scored at 19 minutes (on an almost identical
play except for shot location. Osorio wore #21 and
at 21 minutes took a 20 yard shot from the right just
over the bar.
Best other non-scoring chances were at 10 minutes
when SCT Dane Roberts took a 22 yard shot up the
middle through a crowd of players that the goalie
fumbled and have roll through his legs but turned
and fell to smother the ball on the goalline.
16 minutes had SCT players work out a short cornerkick
from the left that had Osorio cross into the box and
Whiteman was called offside on 4 yard tap in when
the ball was headed forward for him. 29 minutes had
SCT Hall rush down the middle and pass over to charging
SCT Badat who had a 12 yard chip that the goalie palmed
upward and caught at 8 yards. 33 minutes had Badat
on the left take a 12 yard shot into the short side
mesh of the net.
Niagara took over for the first 15 minutes of the
second half with the subbing in at halftime of
forwards Derek Paterson and Ben N'Goran. Best chance
was at 48 minutes when N'Goran hit the right post
on a 10 yard shot. The Niagara head coach James
McGillivray had to be told to sit back down
on the bench when the fourth official and referee's
assistant summoned referee Jeff Fearnall over to
the sideline. I saw a Niagara player just before
then lying down in the SCT box away from play.
I wonder if the TV cameras caught that or were they
upfield following the action? That wasn't the only
action that had the Niagara coach upset.
Other good scoring chances were at 69 minutes when
SCT McNicoll was given a tap over pass in the middle
and blasted a 15 yard shot over the net. 75 minutes
had SCT Whiteman take a 12 yard blast on the right
that the goalie flew to the right to bat down.
77 minutes had NU N'Goran and Paterson have a pair
of shots blocked in the SCT box by defenders.
The win moved the SCT Toronto record up to 5-1-3
for a share of 2nd place tied with TFC Academy
and Montreal Impact Academy but with one game
less played than those two teams. Niagara's
record falls to 4-4-0 for 11th place but they've
played less than any other team in the league.
The game was the Rogers TV Community Channel's
game of the week and will be broadcast on
Sunday evening at 8:00pm in the City of Toronto.

5 yards but ball deflects over him into right
side of net.

...St Catharines Roma Wolves.......0......
Attendance was about 120 on this hot evening. The
seats were still wet from a few rainstorms in the
afternoon that played a part in the PDL game
held here earlier.
The first two goals scored by Toronto Croatia within
four minutes broke open the game. Croatia had many
early chances to score and with each miss it looked
like maybe in a day of CSL upsets, Wolves stood a chance.
Wolves have only scored four goals in 11 games so after
those goals a comeback appeared unlikely.
Antonio Ilic earned the shutout for Croatia by making
a few key saves.
Referee Gianni Facchini gave out a few cards and had control
of the game but wasn't popular with TC fans and the Wolves
Best non-scoring chances were at 36 minutes when TC Marin
Vucemilovic Grgic rolls a 25 yard cross from the right that
TC Hayden Fitzwilliams misses connecting on a 7 yard shot
down the middle. 43 minutes had the TC players work
out a short cornerkick from the right that's worked into
box and TC Augustin De Medina shot an 8 yarder wide right
of the post. 46 minutes had TC Tihomir Maletic send in
a cornerkick from the right that Fitzwilliams headed
a 5 arder onto the top of the net. By 48 minutes TC had
been called for two offsides in the half already.
65 minutes had Wolves Scott MacLennan take a 45 yard
freekick that had Calvin Rosario shoot a 7 yard shot off the
right post. 69 minutes found TC Grgic alone on the right
to shoot a 22 yard roller wide left of net. 71 minutes
had Maletic take a cornerkick from the right through the
players in the box and Fitzwilliams miss a 3 yard
header. 77 minutes had Wolves Rosario take a 12 yard shot
in a crowd of players in middle and the flying goalie batted
wide right. Rosario gets to the rebound but crosses
high and wide left of the net.
Toronto Croatia's record improves to 7-1-2. They had
briefly been displaced from first place when TFC
Academy had won earlier in the afternoon but are back
to the lead which they've held since Week 3.
Wolves fall to 1-8-1 and would be in last place except
the North York Astros who won earlier today have
played one more game.
