13 Aug 2023

Toronto Falcons defeated league leaders Serbian White Eagles by a 2-1 score, Hamilton City struck four in the first half to beat Ooty Black Pearl 4-2 and Scarborough striker Petar Dordevic scored a hat-trick in his side’s 5-0 victory over Weston United, three games in the Canadian Soccer League at the Mattamy Sports Park Saturday.

Toronto Falcons opened the scoring just four minutes after the kickoff when Nazar Slobodian drove a direct free kick inside the right post and out of reach of Serbian Eagles’ goalkeeper Nikola Postic, a 1-0 lead at the interval and Vasyl Matviishyn made it 2-0 for the Falcons at the 60th minute mark. Five minutes later, Serbian White Eagles midfielder Nikola Durkovic drove a distant long shot that found the net past Vasyl Shpuk in the Toronto Falcons goal to reduce the score to 2-1, a score that held in favour of the Falcons at the final whistle. Toronto Falcons improved to a 4-3-1 WLT for 13 points while holding on to fourth position in the standings. Serbian White Eagles are on top with a 7-2-0 record for 21 points.

Anton Sigul scored on a breakaway at the 9th minute mark for a 1-0 Hamilton City lead in the second match and Ooty Black Pearl defender Bahati Michael Rusage scored from outside the box to tie the game 1-1 at 16 minutes. Hamilton City then scored three goals before the break, the first by Vladimir Dojcinovic at 28 minutes, a goal by midfielder Janko Milosevic at 30 minutes and Marko Djukic made it 4-1 at the 37th minute mark. Mario Peche Morote found the net past Hamilton goalkeeper Aleksandar Nikolic for Black Pearl’s second goal at the 80th minute mark. Hamilton City remain in fifth position in the table with a 3-5-1 record for 10 points, while Ooty Black Pearl have an 0-7-2 record for two points and seventh in the standings.

Scarborough continues to impress having conceded just two goals in the club’s eight-game regular season campaign while the prolific Dordevic hat-trick for a 5-0 rout of Weston United in the late game moved the east Toronto side within two points of top of the table Serbian White Eagles.

Dordevic opened the scoring with a low drive at 15 minutes and found the net again at the 35th minute mark for a 2-0 Scarborough lead at the break. The Serbian striker completed his hat-trick at 77 minutes, with late goals also from Gonzalo Matias at 70 minutes and Shaqueil Bradford at the 79th minute mark. Scarborough now has a 6-1-1 record for 19 points, while Weston United have a 1-6-2 record for five points and sixth in the table.
