In an event I have never personally seen before, Saturday night’s game between Hamilton City and Serbian White Eagles was abandoned after a brawl erupted between the two teams. The abandonment came while the home team Hamilton City was leading the match 1-0 at the Cardinal Newman.
Hamilton’s goal was put home by Igor Krmar who found the back of the net to put Hamilton City into a 1-0 lead over Serbian White Eagles. However late in the game when it looked like Hamilton was on their way to their second straight victory, the referee abandoned the game with mere minutes remaining following an altercation which could not be controlled.
According to a release from the Canadian Soccer League, “The result will not stand until the CSL Disciplinary Committee carries out an investigation and renders its decision on the outcome of the game.”
At present, with the game currently sitting as a no contest, Hamilton City sits in sixth place with a 4-7-3 record and 15 points. Etobicoke’s Serbian White Eagles have a 6-5-2 record and are in fourth position with 20 points.
Hamilton City pays a visit to Toronto Atomic FC on Saturday night to take on Toronto Atomic FC who are in third place with a 6-5-4 record. That game kicks off at 7:30 PM.
