- York Region Shooters vs FC Ukraine United -
The well-traveled attacking midfielder, Anthony Bahadur, scored the lone goal in a 1-0 victory for York Region Shooters over FC Ukraine United at the St. Joan of Arc ground in Maple, the only game played in the Canadian Soccer League First Division Sunday.
Bahadur, who scored the only goal for the then Italia Shooters in the CSL Championship 1-0 victory over Serbian White Eagles back in 2006, struck Sunday’s winning goal at 34 minutes after Ukraine United goalkeeper Nazar Lytvyn managed to save a first attempt. Bahadur collected the rebound to drive the ball into the net from inside the box. It was 1-0 at the interval and at the final whistle.
The Canadian-born Bahadur has played in Mexico, Singapore, Thailand, Israel and Egypt with some success at high levels and played also for the Shooters, Toronto Lynx and Edmonton in Canada.
Sunday’s win by league-leading York Region (10-2-2 WLT for 32 points) opens a nine-point gap in the standings with nearest rivals Scarborough SC (23 points) in second place, while Toronto Atomic are in third position with 22 points.
