CARDS AND GOALS A-PLENTY IN CSL ACTION SUNDAY

There were plenty of goals but more cards in Canadian Soccer League games Sunday, some of which resulted in ejection of players, coaches and one manager while Montreal Impact Academy tied Capital City FC 1-1, Brampton City Utd  defeated North York Astros 5-0, Mississauga Eagles FC downed Brantford Galaxy 2-0 and Toronto Croatia gave up a 2-0 lead to tie York Region Shooters, 2-2.


 


There were no less than 13 cautions issued by referee Chris Grabas in the game at the Marie Victorin Stadium in Montreal and eight of the yellow cards resulted in four players – two from each side – being shown a red card on their second caution.


 


Montreal defender Karl Ouimette opened the scoring at the 19th minute mark when he took a pass from Wandrille Lefevre to beat Capital FC goalkeeper Clint Irwin for a 1-0 lead at half-time.


 


Capital FC lost coach Shaun Harris at 55 minutes when ordered out of the game and that was followed by the ejection of midfielder Collin Harrison following a second yellow at 82 minutes and Academy goalkeeper Jason Beaulieu was shown the red card, also at 82 minutes following his second caution.


 


Substitute Joel Bagby – in the game for just three minutes – struck the equalizer for the visitors at 85 minutes to tie the game 1-1.


 


There were two more ejections when Ottawa’s Julien Edwards was shown the red card at 85 minutes following his second caution and Academy midfielder Wandrille Lefevre picked up his second yellow card and was ejected at the 90 minute mark.


 


The tie gave the Ottawa team their fifth game in succession without a loss.


 


Brampton City Utd gave their fans plenty to cheer about with five goals without a response from North York Astros at Victoria Park. Striker Richard West led the way with two goals in a game which left the Astros still searching for their first win of the season.


 


Brampton forward Jeremy Shepherd opened the scoring at 12 minutes when he collected a pass from West to drive the ball from 15 yards past Astros goalkeeper Enea Perego and the home side took a 2-0 lead when midfielder Denny Velastegui scored from a penalty  awarded by referee Justin Tasev. It was 2-0 at the interval.


 


West scored  his goals at 56 and 85 minutes and Blazej Skoczylas completed the scoring when he struck the fifth goal at the 87th minute, a 5-0 victory for Brampton.


 


Mississauga Eagles FC won their fifth game of the season with a 2-0 victory over the current CSL champions, Brantford Galaxy at the Hershey Centre. Forward Dave Simpson opened the scoring at 19 minutes for the home side, a play that started on the left wing, then came across for Simpson to tap in from three yards past Galaxy ‘keeper Vladimir Markotic.


 


Shawn Brown made it 2-1 for Mississauga, his second goal in two games after opening the scoring for his side in a 4-2 defeat of London City on Friday night. The 2-0 score at the interval remained to the final whistle.


 


York Region Shooters came back from a 2-0 deficit to tie Toronto Croatia 2-2 in a tough contest at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke.


 


Croatia midfielder Augustin De Medina opened the scoring at 39 minutes on a penalty awarded by referee John Oliva, a call against York Region defender Chris Turner for pushing in the box and Lee Hagerdon made it 2-0 for the home side at 44 minutes.


 


Jason De Thomasis of York Region reduced the lead to 2-1 at the 45th minute mark, the score at half-time and Kadian Lecky scored the equalizer at 72 minutes and the game ended 2-2.


 


Hayden Fitzwilliams of Toronto Croatia was shown the red card for Violent Conduct at 78 minutes. Kadian Lecky and Jason De Thomasis of York Region were also  red-carded following a second caution in each case near the end of the game. Both head coach Filipe Bento and manager John Pacione of York Region Shooters were ordered from the game during the second half by referee Oliva.
