HAMILTON THUNDER 3-1 OVER OLYMPIANS
Hamilton Thunder regained the runner-up position in the Western Conference of the standings with a 3-1 defeat of Mississauga Olympians at Brian Timmis Stadium, the only game played in the Canadian Professional Soccer League Thursday.
In the only game played on Wednesday night, it didn�t take long for St. Catharines Wolves to make amends for a heavy 5-0 loss to Toronto Supra just 48 hours earlier. The Garden City team came out on top of a hard fought contest to defeat London City, 3-2.
Mississauga Olympians took the lead with a strike at the 8th minute by John Matas, but just six minutes later Matthew O'Connor tied the score 1-1 for Thunder.
Stalin Cardenas put Hamilton ahead at the 65th minute mark and Peter Curic made sure of the win for Hamilton, scoring at the 73rd minute, a 3-1 final result.
In the game Wednesday at Club Roma, the teams fought to a scoreless tie in the first half and it wasn�t until the 73rd minute that Mark Mulholland put St. Catharines one-up and that score held until five minutes from the final whistle when Attila Salamon tied the game for London City.
The game was looking very much like a 1-1 tie, but three more goals were scored�two by the home side and one by London City for the 3-2 final score.
Carlo Arghitto made it 2-1 for St. Catharines at 86 minutes, Frank Del Priore made it 3-1 for Wolves at 88 minutes and Gentian Buzali struck for London City in added time.
The win moves St. Catharines into second place in the Western Conference with a 6-5-1 WLT record and 19 points, while London City are at 3-7-2 and 11 points.
