Attendance was about 50 on this mild night but cool enough to keep most of the mosquitoes away.
This was certainly a turnaround for DUFA since I saw them last Friday at their other ‘home’ stadium in Oshawa.
That game they lost 4-0 to second place Woodbridge Strikers. I can think of two major reasons for the change.
They kept eleven men on the field so did not have to play after a Red card call for handball in their box
at 27 minutes. They also had their injured captain Taylor Lord back to start and play the full 90 minutes
(last Friday he only played the last 20 minutes). He commanded the defence and midfield.
DUFA had also played a midweek game on Wednesday night on the road against FC London that ended in a 2-2 tie. Seven of
tonight’s starters also started in that game just 48 hours earlier.
Peter Katarsaris earned the shutout for DUFA without having a lot to do. The defensive line of Raphael Reynolds,
Jordan Dover, Taylor Lord, and Aldo Maiorano broke up most of the Clippers final passes preventing shots on net.
DUFA were able to send long crosses and passes forward or across the field. Most noticeable to me were
the efforts by Bruce Cullen and Jordan Dover.
Referee Hassane Rifai gave out no cards in a game that was generally wide open with rush after rush each way.
DUFA were most upset by the number of times they were called offside in the second half. I was standing
about 40 yards downfield and couldn’t see if they had a gripe. Kashiff De Jonge swung his fist in the air when
he scored after having so many rushes called back.
Best non-scoring chances were at 30 minutes when DUFA Bruce Cullen sent in a cornerkick from the left and
the goalie swatted the ball away to the right and DUFA Christian Moncrieffe took a low 15 yard shot from
the right that the goalie smothered. 73 minutes had Mondcrieffe receive a short centering pass from the left
and his low 15 yard shot up the middle was stopped by the diving goalie. 86 minutes had KC Aaron Lyons
cross from 28 yards on the right and KC Eric Koskins twisted an 8 yard header wide left of the post.
The win improves Durham’s record to 11 wins, 6 losses, 3 ties for 36 points and third place in the
Eastern Conference. Vaughan Azzurri is in first place at 46 points with DUFA only having two games
The loss drops Kingston’s record to 7 wins, 8 losses, 5 ties for 26 points and fourth place in the East.
