Result and details of the Sunday September 6, 2015 League 1 Ontario game between Woodbridge Strikers
and Kingston Clippers played at Vaughan Grove in Woodbridge at 7:00pm.
79 min…Woodbridge Darian Bygrave GOAL…WS Andrew Derayeh blasts a shot on a scrambled play in the
box and ball deflects off a player and ball lands at 6 yard line and Bygrave even with right post lifts
shot into upper half near right corner of net with goalie Navi Sidhu trapped in the center.
Final Score:……..Woodbridge Strikers……….1……..Kingston Clippers…….0…….
Attendance was around 50 on this hot and humid evening. Although it is a holiday weekend there were
no children in the crowd.
Strikers held a wide possession and territorial advantage through most of the game. Their problem was
they missed about a dozen chances and the game was never safe as the Clippers always had the chance
to tie. Thats sounds a lot like the Canada vs Belize national team game on Friday.
Matt George earned the shutout for the Strikers without having much to do except come forward to break
up the odd through ball pass and catch a few crosses. That also compares with the Canada vs Belize
game with Canadian goalie Kenny Stamatopoulos having even less to do.
Referee Alexis Vaughan gave out only three Yellow cards tonight (two to Woodbridge) in a game that
never got rough. She also scheduled a water break in each half. Clippers were caught offside about
three times late in the game when they were pressing.
Best non-scoring chances were at 16 minutes when WS Adrian Gallo rolled a through ball pass
to WS Nicholas Chiarot who has his 12 yard shot deflected over the net by a retreating, sliding defender.
28 minutes had WS Darian Bygrave pass from 22 yards on the left that somehow bounced between players
and the diving goalie pushed the ball wide right of the post and WS Jesse Andoh took an 8 yard shot
that was partially blocked and Bygrave blasted an off balance 12 yard shot from the left high and
wide right of the net. 35 minutes and WS Joseph Jackson had a 15 yard shot stopped by the diving
goalie at 6 yards on a sprawling save. 66 minutes had WS Victor Munoz run to the left end line but
he pushed the ball out of play as he was trying to deke the goalie. 73 minutes had WS Munoz take
a 45 yard freekick from the left that had WS Jackson leap in a crowd of players and head a 12 yarder
downward that the goalie caught on the bounce. Injury time had a WS player chip a 15 yard shot
behind the goalie but the retreating KC Eric Koskins got back to clear the ball off the line.
The win vaults Woodbridge from sixth place to a tie for fourth with one game in hand on Sigma FC who
have the same mumber of points. Their record improves to 11 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses for 34 points.
This has been a very productive weekend for them as they won 2-0 on the road against Vaughan Azzurri
on Friday night. Strikers have games in hand on all the teams above them.
Kingston’s record falls to 3 wins, 5 draws, and 11 losses for 14 points and they stay in tenth in the
twelve team league.
