76 min…Lions Daniel Cameira GOAL…Lions Daniel Nascimento good pass forward and Cameira 10 yard shot is into left side of net.

Final Score:…….Brampton Lions…….5……….Windsor Border Stars……..0………

Attendance was about 70 on this hot humid evening. The late start almost ensured that there would be no children here. The league didn’t have a team in Brampton last year but facilities were unchanged. They had a PA system and DJ (the same one as did last year’s Metro Lions games). The scoreboard was functioning as a countdown clock. Natural grass field and wooden benches as the stands can hold a few hundred people.

Border Stars failed to capitalize on their early chances. Before the 1st minute was over Aaron Byrd ran up the middle and passed over to the right where a charging Tom Eller kicked a 15 yard shot that Lions goalie Adrian Ibanez tipped wide right. Byrd, Eller, and George Vlithar also had other chances in the first 25 minutes.

From the 25th minute on the Lions took over the game. The second Lions goal just before the end of the first half was the killer for this game and put the game out of reach.

Nordo Gooden looked great for the Lions and had that extra burst of speed that he could use to run past the Border Stars defenders. He may make us forget about last year’s Lions star Evan Milward.

Two-goal scorer Daniel Cameira looked great in the second half and cheering loudest was one Lions official. I’d wondered why I recognized Victor Cameira listed as this year’s Lions manager after many years as an official of Toronto Supra (Portugal FC). That was his son playing and scoring for the Lions.

The other ‘family’ connection on the Lions is that brothers Miles and Matt O’Connor were playing midfield on the same team this year. Matt was their captain in last night’s game.

Adrian Ibanez and Maxfield Materne shared the shutout for the Lions. Materne replaced Ibanez at 86 minutes and didn’t face a shot. David Kadoic for WBS had just hit the top side of the bar a minute earlier for their last chance.

For the last five minutes of the game the Lions just played keep-away in the midfield. Border Stars were comfortable with that as from the bench they were advised to ‘save it for tomorrow’. With league scheduling, this game ended at 10:27pm and they have a five hour drive to get back to Windsor and they play a ‘home’ game tomorrow at 7:00pm against Trois-Rivieres Attak in Chippewa Valley Michigan (their only game there this year). Lions’ next game is Sunday against North York Astros at 3:00pm at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York.

I had been sent an e-mail from a fan in Bulgaria asking if it was true that Windsor had started the game with only ten players against North York Astros last Sunday which Astros won 3-0. After tonight’s game I asked Border Stars owner/coach/midfielder Jeff Hodgson if that rumour was true. He said it wasn’t; their team “just wasn’t good enough”. Tonight’s game they had brought four subs and used them all.

Result of the Sunday June 8th, 2008 CSL game between North York Astros and Brampton Lions played at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York at 3:00pm.

14 min…Astros Sergio Ribadeneira GOAL…Astros Selvin Lammie rush on right passes across goalmouth from 12 yards and Ribadeneira kicks in 5 yarder from left post.

36 min…Lions Daniel Nascimento GOAL…Nascimento has 5 yard tap-in into center of net as Lions throw-in bounces past defenders leaving two Lions players Nascimento and Miles O’Conner in box alone.

40 min…Lions Nordo Gooden GOAL…Daniel Nascimento at center line sends a bouncing through ball that Gooden gets to at 35 yards on left and he takes 20 yard kick that’s bent around goalie Haidar Al Shaibain and into top right corner of net.

51 min…Astros Selvin Lammie GOAL…Astros player had made great play to save ball along end line on left and cross finds Astros Brian Carbajal short on left end line and his cross from 5 yards deflects off defender and Lammie heads ball in from 2 yards just under bar. Lammie obtains a head injury on the play and has to be helped from the field and was immediately subbed.

58 min…Astros Go Nagaoka GOAL…Nagaoka scores almost impossible angled 8 yard blast from right end line into top left corner of net behind goalie Adrian Ibanez.

Final Score:……North York Astros…….3…………Brampton Lions………2………..

Attendance was about 90 on this extremely hot and humid day.

This game was wide open with lots of end-to-end action by both teams. Lions almost tied it up at 70 minutes when Alex Arbello takes a 30 yard freekick from the right and has the ball curve to goalie but he coughs up a big rebound that a Lions player one-touch deflects from 8 yard off the right post. Three minutes later Lions Andy Garcia sent a 20 yard blast down middle is just over the bar. Lions Daniel Nascimento took a 26 yard freekick at 79 minutes that was just wide left of the post. At 82 minutes Alex Arbello’s 25 yard freekick up the middle is blasted into the player wall. At 86 minutes, Lions Orlin Chalmers rushed through the middle and retains possession as the ball tips off a defender and his 12 yard shot is into the outside right mesh of the net. Their last chance came at 92 minutes when Denny Velastegui’s 25 yard cross from the right on rush has goalie Haidar Al Shaibain catch in front of a group of players in the box.

Referee John Facini gave out a few cards but it wasn’t a really rough game. Lions Nordo Gooden was injured in the Astros box at 64 minutes and did not return to the game after some off field treatment. He had to be carried back to the locker room with no weight on his right leg. He was also injured late in Friday’s Lions vs. Border Stars game.

I ask Ennio (Astros PA announcer) about last week’s Astros win over Windsor Border Stars. He confirmed that Border Stars only had ten players and collapsed after they got behind in the 67th minute. This fact was first pointed out by an e-mailer to me all the way over in Bulgaria.

There won’t be any pictures on my web site from this game as I forgot to bring my camera.
