Djordje Jocic prominent in Serbian Eagles victory

There were three games in the CSL First Division over the weekend when Vorkuta FC and Serbian White Eagles scored important wins to take first and second position respectively in the standings.  Vorkuta defeated York Region Shooters, 2-1, while Serbian White Eagles came back from an early 1-0 setback to score three goals, ending with a 3-1 victory over Royal Toronto FC, both games played Friday. On Saturday, Brantford Galaxy enjoyed a 4-1 home victory over Milton at the Kiwanis ground in Brantford.

Dario Brezak scored with a flying header from close in at 11 minutes for Royal Toronto in the game against Serbian White Eagles at Centennial Stadium, the ball finding the net inside the right post out of reach of Serbian Eagles goalkeeper Goran Skaric. The 1-0 lead held up until 43 minutes when the home side made it 1-1 with a goal by Goran Svonja. The play started from a corner kick by the ever prominent Djordje Jocic that was cleared by the Royal defence to Filip Velasevic of Serbian Eagles. Velasevic drove the ball from 22 yards and it was diverted by Svonja into the net.

Luka Bojic put Serbian Eagles into a 2-1 lead with a goal at 74 minutes, taking a pass from newcomer Dusan Kovacevic, recently acquired from McMaster University. Kovacevic entered the game as a substitute 10 minutes earlier and was playing his first game for the home side.

Kovacevic made it 3-1 for Serbian White Eagles with a near solo effort when he beat several players at 77 minutes. It was 3-1  the final whistle.

Midfielder Camaal Reid opened the scoring for the home side York Region Shooters against Vorkuta at the Joan of Arc Stadium in Maple, beating visiting goalkeeper Ruslan Zarubin at the 25 minute mark and this was followed up five minutes later with a tying goal by Vorkuta defender Volodymyr Rudyi when he found the net past York Region keeper Adam Majer. It was 1-1 at the break. Vorkuta forward Kristijan Kezic struck the winning goal at 84 minutes for a 2-1 Vorkuta victory.

Brantford Galaxy took a 3-0 halftime lead in the games against Milton SC at the Kiwanis ground in Brantford on goals by Maksim Bosic at 17 minutes, midfielder Dragan Milovic at 35 minutes and Miroslav Cabrilo at the 41 minute mark.

Striker Stefan Vukovic increased the Galaxy lead to 4-0 at 75 minutes before Harris Fazlagic found the net for Milton three minutes later, beating Stefan Avramovic in the Galaxy goal for a 4-1 final score.
