Final Score:.......Mississauga Olympians.........1.........London City.........1.......
Attendance was about 40 on this warm evening. I was offering my mosquito spray by the second half.
London City looked like the best I've seen them in a few years. They really limited the Olympians chances in the first half with solid defense. This was their first road game of the year. Anthony Vassallo subbed in at the 69 minute mark. He is the youngest player in the CPSL at age 15 and sure didn't look like the worst player on the field. Olympians had only three subs on their bench and looked like a few late subs could have given them some more chances later in the game with players tiring.
Referee Gord Arrowsmith called a solid game but the fourth official Alexander William had a tough time mistakenly ordering away both coach's sons off the bench despite them being official members of the coaching staff. Hey nothing wrong with having a teenage equipment manager and assistant coach.
The Rogers camera was at the game catching lots of footage for the hilight show. Host Alex B interviewed a few London City players including Steven Flatt, Tyler Hemming, and Anthony Vassallo.
