Serbian White Eagles continued their relentless drive to the league title with a 1-0 victory over Scarborough SC, the only game played in the Canadian Soccer League Friday.
It was the 13 win of the season for a team determined to win the CSL First Division title as a prelude to the more coveted CSL Championship being staged at Waterloo on October 25.
Friday’s game was decided by just one goal at 51 minutes following a tough, tenacious scoreless first half. Forward Milos Scepanovic found the net past Scarborough goalkeeper Mladen Kukrika directly from a corner kick and while both sides missed chances to change the score, the outcome of the game played at Centennial Stadium in Etobicoke appeared never in doubt with Serbian Eagles having a distinct edge in the play.
Serbian White Eagles are 10 points clear of their nearest rivals Toronto Croatia in the CSL First Division standings, and while the First Division title is by no means decided, there are few that will deny the eventual outcome with just three games remaining for the league leaders and five each for Toronto Croatia and SC Waterloo.
“I’m very pleased with the way everyone has responded following an investment to strengthen the team following the 2014 season,” said head coach Uros Stamatovic following Friday’s win. Players like Marko Krasic and Radenko Kamberovic, and others, have given us the extra strength needed to win the CSL.”
Serbian White Eagles now have a 13-2-4 WLT record for 43 points and three games remaining, ten points ahead of Toronto Croatia (five games remaining) and 13 points in front of SC Waterloo, also with five games still to play.
Scarborough have a 5-7-7 record for 22 points in ninth position in the table.
Serbian White Eagles next game is at Burlington on September 20.
