Serbian White Eagles maintained their unbeaten string, winning a 1-0 squeaker over FC Ukraine United in the only game played in the Canadian Soccer League Friday night.
Defender Branislav Vukomanovic struck a picture goal three minutes into the second half following a well-played 45 minutes at Centennial Stadium, a first half that produced few opportunities to break the scoreless deadlock.
The goal from 35 yards which entered the net in the top right corner well out of the long reach of Ukraine United goalkeeper Andriy Bandrivskyy was described as a rare strike, particularly from the distance.
Forward Luka Bojic struck the right post with a drive at 88 minutes for Serbian Eagles and two minutes later midfielder Pavlo Lukianets of Ukraine United came close with a free kick from 20 meters with Serbian Eagles’ goalkeeper Goran Skaric beaten. Forward Dusan Kovacevic and midfielder Milan Mitrovic were impressive for the home side, while Ukraine United’s Roman Datsiuk on the right wing was a constant threat for the visitors to the final whistle.
Serbian White Eagles have a high output of nine points in third position in the standings, an unbeaten 2-0-3WLT record achieved from finding the net just four times in the 5 games played to date. Only two goals have been conceded, the lowest in the CSL’s top division.
FC Ukraine United hold second position with a 3-2-1 record for 10 points, trailing First Division leaders FC Vorkuta by three points in the table. Next game FC Ukraine United will play in Waterloo Ontario against Waterloo SC on Saturday, June 29th. Kick-off 6:30pm
