(WINDSOR, ON) – Kicking off the 2018 League 1 Ontario season, Windsor TFC dropped a home match to Unionville-Milliken SC in front of almost 100 fans at Alumni Field yesterday afternoon. Windsor did manage to carry most of the play and had their chances, but didn’t capitalize in the 3-1 defeat.
The two sides battled to a 0-0 half time score with much of the attack contained to the mid-field as neither defense would allow the other side much leeway. Windsor opened the scoring in the 70th minute when Jamar Kelly struck home a solid shot off a clearing attempt by Unionville.
“That was a good hit,” said Windsor head coach Zibby Piatkiewicz. “He had a good chance and he put it away.” Kelly, a defender, was named Windsor’s player of the game for his effort at both ends of the pitch.
The visitors drew even with a goal by Joseph Di Chiara in the 79th minute and then went ahead to stay just minutes later. Unionville capped the match with a third tally to close out play.
“We had our chances. It was a tight game, though,” said Piatkiewicz. “Unionville played really well. They controlled the ball nicely and moved it very well.”
Windsor returns to Alumni Field on May 6 when they host Aurora FC at 2pm.
