Depending on the draw, this weekend’s Toonie Tournament might finally determine who has the stronger soccer team.
After ending in a 3-3 tie on November 2, PropertyGuys and Austring, Fendrik and Fairman reached another 2-2 draw in U-11 soccer play at the Canada Games Centre on Wednesday.
The PropertyGuys squad dominated play at the start of the first, producing a bevy of shots on the Austring net, soon going up 1-0 on a goal by Matthew Butler in minute 11.
However, as if the goal was a wake-up call, Austring’s John Dagostin scored with five minutes left before half and took the lead midway through the second on a goal from Elias Sagar on a long shot that caught the far, bottom corner of the net.
“I didn’t change the lineup at all – I think they need to warm up and then they get into it,” said Austring coach Raymond Dagostin. “I let them break a sweat before a game because it helps them get into it. They’re sort of sleepwalking in the first half.”
With the clock winding down, PropertyGuys’ Andrew Lefebvre evened the score with a shot that went off the side of the net, ricocheting off the goalkeeper and in.
“Our offence wasn’t getting back in time to help,” said PropertyGuys coach Pat Shaw. “Once we took care of that we got another goal.”
“One of the problems we’re having is that tonight we had all our players and the last game we had five of our players,” said PropertyGuys coach Mike Pierce. “So it makes it a little more strenuous getting the lines organized.”
Staying on top of the Austring offence, PropertyGuys’ James Russell was named his team’s MVP.
“He was doing exactly what he was supposed to be doing,” said Shaw. “He was standing in front, sticking with the offence all the time, never giving up. It was a good, solid game for him.”
Snagging MVP honours in the Austring lineup was John Dagostin.
“He played awesome in goal, then I put him back out as forward and he stopped a sure goal,” said his coach. “He played really well and worked his heart out.”
