SCARBOROUGH OVERCOME DEFICIT FOR 4-2 VICTORY

03 Sep 2020

Scarborough SC secured its third win in as many games of a shortened 2020 season with a 4-2 come from behind victory over Brantford Galaxy at Centennial Stadium, the only game played in the Canadian Soccer League Wednesday.

It was the third defeat for the Galaxy despite a well-played scoreless first half followed by an early goal in the second half that gave the visiting team a 1-0 lead.

Aleksa Markovic opened the scoring for Brantford at the 48th minute mark and Scarborough equalized two minutes later, a strike from 15 yards inside the right post by midfielder Zoran Rajovic.

Gonzalo Matias Cabrera Celis put Scarborough into a 2-1 lead from 12 yards at 58 minutes when Galaxy goalkeeper Ognjen Savic failed to collect the ball and this was followed a minute later by an impressive Moussa Limame increasing the lead to 3-1 from close in.

Brantford midfielder Camilo Veloza cut the lead to 3-2 with a drive out of reach of Scarborough goalkeeper John Trye at 60 minutes and Stefan Stojiljkovic completed the scoring with Scarborough’s fourth goal at 73 minutes for a 4-2 result in favour of the east Toronto team at the final whistle.

There are two games remaining this week when Brantford Galaxy and FC Vorkuta meet on Saturday, a game followed by Serbian White Eagles at home to Hamilton City. These and all subsequent games will be played at Esther Shiner Stadium, a change from the Centennial Stadium venue announced earlier.
