CSL 2013--Week 16

Recommended Posts

Result and details of the Sunday August 18th, 2013 CSL game between

Brampton City United and Windsor Stars played at Victoria Park

in Brampton at 3:00pm.

10 min...Stars David Kadoic GOAL...WS Wade Allen eludes two

defenders on right edge of box near end line and crosses over

to 18 yards on left and Kadoic stops ball and shoots

low 18 yarder that banks in off right post past diving goalie

Eugenio Garro.

32 min...A Stars defender is called for handball just inside box

on left as a BCU player sends in a low cross from 20 yards on left.

Referee Manuel Orellano signals for a Penalty kick.

33 min...BCU Milos Scepanovic GOAL...Scepanovic blasts Penalty kick

low that hits the post in the back of the net and it bounces out

of the box so fast that the illusion was it looked like it had

hit the left post.

73 min...BCU David Velastagui on rush has Stars Michael Watson bash

him over after he'd stepped into right side of box. Another

Penalty kick is awarded.

74 min...BCU Milos Scepanovic GOAL...Scepanovic blasts a Penalty

kick low to left that goalie Dejo Olabegi dives and blocks. The

ball bounces out to 8 yards and Scepanovic beats other players

to blast the rebound into the top right side of the net

beating Stars defender Jamar Kelly to get away shot.

86 min...BCU RED card...Marcos Nunes earns a direct ejection for

a late studs-up sliding tackle on Stephen Ademolu after Ademolu

had passed away the ball at the Stars 40 yard sideline.

93 min...BCU Milos Scepanovic GOAL...BCU Thomas McLean blasts

30 yard freekick from the left that the goalie flies to block

and Scepanovic kicks 7 yarder over fallen goalie into top right

corner of net.

Final Score:.....Brampton City United...........3.........

........Windsor Stars...............1...............

Attendance was about 80 on this hot and sunny day. That was

disappointing for such nice weather. It did mean it was easy

to hear all the chatter on the field and BCU Thomas McLean

heckling back at a Stars fan in the stands.

Referee Manuel Orellano gave out only one Yellow card (and the

Red card) that I counted in a close checking game with some

harsh tackles. He got the players from both teams to back off

when they surrounded him before he gave out the Red card.

Both teams had problems with getting called offside quite often.

Milos Scepanovic scored all three goals for BCU today. Two of

them came off Penalty kicks. His total goals scored is 8 for

the season which brings him up to a tie for 6th. 2nd leading

league scorer Marcos Nunes will face a lengthy suspension

and his total stalls at 13.

Eugenio Garro was the goalie for BCU today. He had played in

the team's 2nd Division game yesterday which they lost 1-0 against

SC Waterloo B. With main keeper Camillo Benzi still serving

a suspension, backup Euloge Awitor Kodzo on vacation, and the

B team #1 in the USA scouting for schools to attend, the chance

fell to Garro who didn't disappoint. He made a few good saves

but it was the Stars poor shooting that really cost them the game.

BCU's defenders have only allowed 17 goals in 13 games. Donavan

Wilson, Mirko Medic, Mark Jankovic, and Tarik Robertson cut down

on Stars shots and the 'tall guys' of Medic and Jankovic had

a few headers when BCU sent in a cornerkick of freekick into

the Stars box.

Best non-scoring chances were at 26 minutes when BCU Marcos Nunes

took a low 20 yard shot from the right that the diving goalie

blocked and the ball rolled wide left of the net. 45 minutes

had BCU David Velastagui take a cornerkick from the left that

BCU Mirko Medic headed from 15 yards from the right that was caught

by the goalie just under the bar. 47 minutes had a Stars player

bend a 20 yard shot down the middle that the goalie pushed off

the right post for a cornerkick. 62 minutes had Stars Wade Allen

tap a pass at 40 yards to the charging Stars Stephen Ademolu who

ran to 15 yards and had his low 15 yard shot blocked point

blank by the sliding goalie. Allen followed up with the 10 yard

rebound shooting it wide right of the post.

BCU's record improves to 9 wins, 4 losses, 0 ties which based

on other teams results later tonight moves them to a tie for

3rd place with either one game or two games in hand on the

teams above them. Stars record evens up at 6 wins, 6 losses,

3 ties to be all alone in 5th place.

Stars only played one game this weekend as their game against

Serbian White Eagles on Friday night was postponed because

of field damage at Centennial Stadium. I wondered how the

schedulers could cancel that game and let Toronto Croatia

play at that stadium on Sunday in a few hours...but that

report I'll type up tomorrow....

Result and details of the Sunday August 18, 2013 CSL game between

Toronto Croatia and SC Waterloo held at Centennial Stadium in

Etobicoke at 8:00pm.

Final Score:.....Toronto Croatia..........0..........

....SC Waterloo........0.........

Attendance was only about 80 for this game on this warm night.

The game was delayed about 15 minutes to give Waterloo a chance

for a full warmup as a series of car accidents had clogged

the 401 expressway. A pregame ceremony was held for Toronto

Croatia superfan Marko Misic marking the first year anniversary

of his death at age 20 while piloting a small plane.

I've seen many 0-0 games that were exciting with end-to-end action

and plenty of scoring chances with no goals because of spectacular

saves---but this was not one of them! The timing for both teams

was just off with passes being broken up or sent offside and just

poor off-target shooting.

Referee Armando Pereira gave out only one Yellow card that I counted

in a game that wasn't tame because there were frequent waves for

the trainers for each team to come on to the field to treat

injured players.

Antonio Ilic earned the shutout for Croatia who did play strong

defence and have only allowed 13 goals in 15 games this season.

Imad Hakura earned the shutout for Waterloo having to make a few

routine saves and being helped out by defenders cutting down

on Croatia shots and making timely checks.

I was waiting for the home debut of Jarek Whiteman who's been

with Toronto Croatia since the beginning of the month. He

scored one goal in their 4-0 victory over SC Waterloo on

August 4th. I have been following him since he started in

this league with Portugal FC/SC Toronto in 2010, 2011 and 2012

(team name change in 2011). Earlier this year I watched him

play for K-W United (K-W is Kitchener-Waterloo) of the PDL

league. Their season ended at the end of July so he's made his

way over to Croatia. He played for the first 59 minutes of

tonight's game as a midfielder mostly on one wing or the other

but was caught up in the malaise of every player on the field


Where is everybody? This was the first Toronto Croatia game

held at this stadium in eight weeks so perhaps the attendance

momentum has been lost. During the time after the flood damage

to the turf at Centennial Stadium, the team has played one home

game at Lamport Stadium in downtown Toronto, had one home

game postponed and had a 'road' game against Serbian White

Eagles (who also use this stadium as home) postponed as well.

White Eagles are in worse schedule shape as they have to make

up three home games before the playoffs start. That will result

in quite a few 'two games in a weekend' dates before mid-October.

This game was filmed for showing by Rogers Community channel

for showing next weekend. This certainly is not the game to

broadcast to show off the excitement of soccer. I may even have

trouble watching this game.

Croatia is tied for 3rd place at 9 wins, 2 losses, 4 ties.

They are part of a breakaway group that are at least 9 points

ahead of the pack and hold a home playoff date for the first round.

Waterloo is in 7th place with a record of 5 wins, 5 losses

and 4 ties. It's a good result for SCW to reply to a 4-0 loss

the last time these teams played. They can build on holding

the two-time CSL defending champions to a draw.

Hey I read off transfermarkt that Ex Serbian White Eagles keeper Milos Djurkovic is with FK Slavija Sarajevo in Bosnian 1st div also his facebook says it too. Do you happen to know if SWE was involved in this movement in any fashion? My thoughts is he's bosnian and made his own connections but thats just my guess
