DUSAN KOVACEVIC HITS FOUR IN 10-1 SWE ROMP……..Shooters, Continentals win

31 Jul 2022

Serbian White Eagles, the team which in earlier times had trouble finding the opponent’s net, continued its recent transformation to become the most prolific team in the Canadian Soccer League so far this season with a crushing 10-1 defeat of BGHC 1 Saturday.

In the other two matches played at the Churchill Meadows and Mattamy Sports Park in Mississauga, Scarborough suffered its first defeat in regular season play since the 2020 season, losing 1-0 to Continentals FC, and York Region Shooters beat Toronto Falcons 3-1 in a physical encounter that resulted in three players being shown the red card.

Serbian Eagles’ forward Dusan Kovacevic led his team with four goals in the one-sided opening match, finding the net twice in the first half and twice following the interval. Vladimir Strizovic and  Marko Pavicevic each scored twice while midfielder Nikola Durkovic and Adam Waithe each struck  singles. The score at the break was 4-1.

Tomislav Pinjuh struck for BGHC at the 23rd minute.

Three players with Serbian White Eagles now league the league’s goal scoring with Kovacevic on top with seven, Durkovic and Strizovic each have six. Serbian White Eagles move to second in the standings with a 4-1-4 WLT record for 16 points, while BGHC are 0-7-2 for two points.

Forward Mahmoud Mehdi opened the scoring at the 35th minute for York Region Shooters in the second match for a 1-0 lead and Falcons’defender Vadym Kucherevskyi  beat Shooters’ goalkeeper Gieson Njehia from outside the box to tie the game at the 82nd minute mark.

Jordan Davis Ewan gave Shooters a 2-1 lead at 88 minutes and midfielder Michael Nwobosi increased the lead to 3-1 at 93 minutes, the score at the final whistle.

A physical game overflowed into an altercation resulting in injury during the second half which brought charges of Serious Foul Play and Violent Conduct. There were also Unsporting Behaviour decisions by the referee, one of which resulted in a second yellow card to Gumen Osypenko of Toronto Falcons who was ejected at 63 minutes, to be followed by a Serious Foul Play call against Carlex Mbobda of York Region Shooters at 77 minutes and a Violent Conduct decision against Vallerii Yarmosh of Toronto Falcons, both of whom were also shown the red card.

The victory moves York Region Shooters to a one point lead in the standings with a 5-2=2 record for 17 points, while Toronto Falcons are in fifth position with a 1-4-4 record for seven points.

It was well-played and a result in doubt most the late game between Scarborough and Continentals FC until striker Mykola Temniuk broke the scoreless encounter with a goal at 75 minutes, a strong drive that caught the top left corner out of reach of Scarborough goalkeeper Christan Moraldo.

Continentals FC improve to a 4-2-3 record for 15 points, now third in the standings, while Scarborough with a 3-1-5 record and 14 points drop to fourth following the long, unbeaten streak in regular season games.

There are three games scheduled to end the regular season on Saturday, August 6, to be followed by the CSL Championship playoffs, then the Enio Perruzza Memorial Trophy competition through to October.
