SHOOTERS WILL BE TESTED – Sunday’s Upcoming Games
Despite the comments of Sam Madeiros, head coach of York Region Shooters on June 12 that while the return of his team to the CSL does not forecast a CSL Championship winning performance, the team from just north of Toronto is still on top of the standings despite its recent loss to Continentals FC, a narrow 3-2 score on June 26.
Madeiros is well focused on his roster and particularly those he identifies as promising players that may have a future at high level and which – as one of Canada’s top technicians in the game — he can help along the way. As soccer coach Gerry Gentile once said ‘there’s nothing in the DNA of a Canadian that says he cannot be a great soccer player’.
The Shooters will be tested on Sunday in the opening game against CSL current champions Scarborough SC, now the only team without a loss and anxious to play its next match following an unexpected postponement of its fixture last week. The two teams met in the opening game of this current campaign, the game ending in a 3-3 tie. The Shooters were ahead 2-0 during the first half and led 3-1 at the break before conceding two goals in the second half.
Toronto Falcons held Serbian White Eagles to a 1-1 draw in its last game, an achievement considering the explosive seven goals scored by White Eagles in the 7-3 rout of BGHC 1 on June 18. The Falcons meet BGHC 1 in the second game of Sunday’s triple header at Centennial Stadium. Commenting on the progress of Toronto Falcons as an expansion team, GM Samad Kadirov said “We are building and with the right people are going in the right direction.”
Serbian White Eagles will be attempting to repeat the form demonstrated in the 7-3 victory when on Sunday they meet Continentals FC, an interesting encounter when it appears Continentals form is trending up also.
Individual statistics following Week 5 in the Canadian Soccer League shows Nikola Durkovic of Serbian White Eagles leads the goal scoring with 5, Scarborough SC are undefeated and BGHC 1 are without a victory.
