MONTREAL IMPACT ACADEMY IN PLAYOFFS WITH 6-1 VICTORY…Niagara defeats SC Waterloo

Montreal Impact Academy became the sixth CSL First Division team to secure a playoff berth following their 6-1 rout of Brantford Galaxy at the Claude Robillard ground in Montreal Sunday afternoon, and in one other game in the CSL, Niagara United defeated SC Waterloo 3-2. Both of these teams remain on the fringes of a spot in the upcoming CSL Championship post regular season games.

 

It was Montreal Impact Academy’s fifth win in a row, while Brantford Galaxy have gone eight games without a win and it was a one-sided contest in Quebec with the academy side’s  Mircea Ilcu opening the scoring at 17 minutes after collecting a cross from Maxime Tissot.

 

 Wandrille Lefevre made it 2-0 for the home side at 57 minutes, Zakaria Messoudi increased the lead to 3-0 two minutes later and Ilci struck his second and Montreal’s fourth goal at the 60th minute mark. Victor Ndiaye came on as a substitute to score at 71 and 87 minutes, while Shane Trembley scored Brantford’s lone goal at the 79th minute mark, a 6-1 final score.

 

Montreal Impact Academy improve to 10-3-5 WLT for 35 points and fifth place in the standings, while Brantford Galaxy are at 8-11-1 for 25 points.

 

It was an important win for Niagara United at the St. David ground in Waterloo as both teams look for a playoff spot.

 

Waterloo took a 1-0 lead almost immediately following the kickoff on a goal by midfielder Drazen Vukovic, his 15th of the season, but the visitors took the lead on goals by Rudy Pikzinski at 19 minutes and Derek Paterson at the 30th minute mark for a 2-1 Niagara lead at the break.

 

Niagara went 3-1 ahead on a goal by Lucas Folino at 47 minutes and Vukovic scored his second at 76 minutes for his 16th of the season.  Niagara’s 3-2 lead  held up to the final whistle.

 

Niagara remain in contention for a playoff spot with a 8-9-3 record for 27 points and SC Waterloo can still squeeze into the playoffs while they go into the last two regular season games with an 8-11-1 record for 25 points.

 

There was one game in the CSL Second Division Sunday, with St. Catharines Wolves B defeating Mississauga Eagles FC B by a 5-1 score.
