SCARBOROUGH WINS LEAGUE TITLE……….Brantford ‘s last game victory
Scarborough confirmed yet another title win despite a 3-1 defeat by FC Vorkuta and in the second game of a Canadian Soccer League Saturday double header and Brantford Galaxy won its first game of the abbreviated 2020 league campaign with a 2-1 result over Serbian White Eagles.
Scarborough and FC Vorkuta ended the regular season at the top of the five-team regular season tied with 15 points and it took the CSL first tie-breaker rule of most wins in regular season competition to separate teams tied on points. Scarborough’s extra win awards the CSL First Division title to the east Toronto club, a second title following the club’s CSL championship victory of 2019.
Midfielder Sergii Ivliev opened the scoring for FC Vorkuta in the opening game at Centennial Stadium, finding the net past Scarborough goalkeeper Aubrey Lowe at the 17thd minute and Valerii Yarmosh made it 2-0 at 32 minutes and it was 2-0 at the break.
Striker Mykola Temniuk put Vorkuta into a 3-0 lead at 66 minutes and Scarborough reduced the lead to 3-1 with a goal by Moussa Limane at the 77 minute mark, the score at the final whistle and ending the regular season for both teams.
Scarborough completed its regular season with a 5-3-0 record for 15 points, while Vorkuta ended with 4-1-3 record, also with 15 points.
Petar Dordevic struck twice for Brantford Galaxy at 35 and 40 minutes for a 2-0 lead until Bojan Zoranovic scored for Serbian White Eagles at the 64th minute mark, the 2-1 result at the final whistle. The victory gave Galaxy a 1-7-0 record for 3 points, while Serbian White Eagles ended its regular season with a 3-4-1 record for 10 points.
Brantford coach Sasa Vidovic considered the win long overdue. “We have an improved team and played well tonight and have done so in earlier games without getting a result—It’s a good way to end the season,” he said.
The post-season playoffs will kickoff this coming week with the championship final brought forward to an earlier date to be announced in the coming days.
