Final Score:.....Brampton City United..........1..........

........Astros Vasas..........2...........

Attendance was about 125 by halftime after a slow build caused by

the threat of rain from an hour before game time although it never

got started during the game.

The game started off very slowly with few chances by either team

in the first 30 minutes. The last 30 minutes of the game was just

the opposite with end to end action. A goalie would make a save

and punt the ball upfield for his team to then get a fast break.

Best non-scoring chances were at 29 minutes when BCU David Velastegui

took a cornerkick from the right and the charging BCU Thomas McLean

headed a 6 yarder over the bar. At 44 minutes McLean took a 35

yard freekick that was just wide left of the net with two players

just missing connecting. 55 minutes had AV Evan James receive a short

pass forward on the left and he cut towards goal at 25 yards and took

a shot from 12 yards that the goalie made a point blank save at 8 yards

on the left. 58 minutes had the AV goalie make a stand up save on the

goal line of a 10 yard shot from the right. 61 minutes and BCU Oscar

Cordon on a good dribbling run on the left and he tapped a pass to BCU

David Velastagui who crossed from 20 yards and BCU Milos Scepanovic tipped

a header from 7 yards that the goalie swatted wide right of the post.

81 minutes had BCU David Guzman rush on the left and cross from

35 yards into the middle and BCU Scepanovic speared the ball down with his

foot then chipped a 15 yarder over goalie and just over net. 92 minutes

had BCU Kevin McIntosh take a 55 yard freekick down the middle that had

the flying BCU goalie head an 8 yarder just wide left of the AV net.

(Yes that was BCU Camilo Benzi going airbourne in the AV box).

Camilo Benzi was back in the BCU goal after a lengthly suspension

and played net like a sweeper as he often charged out 25 or 30 yards

to make a clearance before the AVs could set up. He was almost

sent off at 38 minutes when he was out to 30 yards to hoof away

a bouncing ball and mistimed his kick and the ball hit him on the

arm but he ended up with only a Yellow card. He had to make some

good saves. AV goalie Matt George I'd never seen before but he

was a stand-up goalie who didn't slide or dive often to make saves.

BCU played their recent signing Oscar Cordon for the entire 90 minutes

in midfield. He started off slow like the rest of the team but looked

better in the second half. He played for Toronto FC of MLS for the

2010 and 2011 season. He joins ex-TFC (2007) teammate David Guzman

who subbed in during the second half and also played in the midfield.

The hero of the game though was Astros ex-TFC player Joey Melo (2007)

who scored today's winning goal. A BCU teammate said before the game

that Cordon who is only 22 can't get a scholarship at NCAA because

of once being signed to a pro contract and his only hope is to wait

for a call from overseas. I hadn't seen Oscar since last year when

I said hello when he was watching his younger brother Allan play

for the North York Astros.

BCU waste an opportunity to keep pace with leading Kingston. They

stay in 2nd place but are four points behind and now only have

one game in hand. Their record is 12 wins, 4 losses, 0 ties.

Astros jump up from 9th to 8th with a record now of 5 wins,

10 losses, 2 ties although they could be back to 9th as Burlington

is playing a game later tonight and might flip back over them.
