Attendance was about 250 people on this hot night.
The crowd was really upset by offside calls that
SWE kept getting caught on even being sarcastic
yelling 'offside' for every pass play by both
teams. This mood started at 9 minutes when
SWE Zoran Rajovic for a 10 yard tap-in that was
called back. SWE got better at beating traps near
the end of the game and it was wide open rushes for
Best non-scoring chances were at 20 minutes when
MIA Amine Meftouh took a cornerkick from the left
that was knocked around in the box which included
the SWE goalie flying over and catching a 3 yard
header on the left post. 71 minutes Zoran Rajovic
got to a through ball and chipped the goalie
from 25 yards from the left but the ball bounced
wide left of the net (two minutes later he
did score). 82 minutes had the MIA goalie punch
away a cross on the left post to prevent an
SWE player from heading it in.
The SWE defensive strain in the second half was
more pronounced (they'd only allowed two goals
all season until tonight) when after substituting
defender Sebastian Novais with forward Viktor
Anastasov at halftime, they had defender Boris
Milicic red carded.
SWE club official Dragon Bakoc told me during
the game that SWE 22 year old goalie Milos
Durkovic has an opportunity to sign with an
Austrian Division 2 team within the next few
The league website pointed out the link between
Stefan Vukovic and SWE assistant coach Sasa
Vukovic as son and father. Stefan started his
career with the SWE youth team then crossed
over to TFC Academy for more full time training.
After leading the CSL in scoring last season,
TFCA released him as he'd passed (at the time)
their self-imposed age limit. He was picked up
by MIA who have an older limit on their Academy
This was a match-up of two of the last three
undefeated CSL teams...SWE with a 4-0-2 record
and 8-2 in goals for/against and MIA at 3-0-3
and 13-4 goals for/against.
Montreal's tough weekend continues when they
play the league's other undefeated team, Toronto
Croatia here at Centennial Stadium at 8:00pm.
(Croatia usually plays Sunday nights but MIA
as they do every year wants to play two games
in two nights to cut costs.
