(BRAMPTON, ON) – Windsor TFC embarked on the road for a match with Prostars FC at Terry Fox Stadium on Saturday. Fielding just three players from the senior team, the replacements from WTFC Academy dropped a 3-2 decision against a strong home side.
“We knew that Windsor would probably come here with a young team, because it is that time of year, and it worked out to our advantage,” Prostars FC head coach Stivon Mikhail told League 1 Ontario media staff.
Mann Slewa put Prostars ahead in the 17th minute, but veteran Celso Carapau drew Windsor even before the break. Lucas Doros then pushed the home team into the lead and Michael Fayehun gave them a two-goal advantage.
Newcomer Nathan Cummings brought Windsor within one, three minutes from time, however they were stopped short of leveling.
“We lost the game, but the goals that we scored were just fantastic goals, with nice touches on the ball and nice combinations of play,” Windsor’s Vancho Cirovski told League 1 Ontario. “We missed two breakaways in the last five minutes, so this could have been a different outcome. I’m happy with how we finished.”
WTFC will remain on the road for a September 17 match with North Mississauga SC. The final game of the season will be played on home turf at McHugh Soccer Complex when Sanjaxx Lions arrive in Windsor on September 30. Kickoff is at 7:30pm.
