Lee Victor-Massunda (7'). Agustin De Medina-Fernandez (25'), Doryan Botelho (58') and Bradley Fenton (90') scored a goal apiece and led North Mississauga Panthers to a dominant 4-0 victory over Windsor TFC Stars.
"The gameplan hasn't changed since day one," said North Mississauga head coach, Sam Medeiros. "Once you change your gameplan, what you're doing is you are working towards your opponent's strength. It's part of my coaching philosophy."
"The execution and the attacking and defending has been the same since day one. The only changes are some of the things that we looked at and worked on this week that we saw could break down this opponent and taken advantage of them."
The North Miss clean sheet was shared by Adam Majer and Daniel De Sousa, a promising young player from the club's youth ranks.
"In regards to the young keeper, he's not even 16 years old yet - Daniel," said Medeiros.
"He's been called up from the U16s where he plays and has been doing really well, so we used him and he has been training with us. We think that he's done very well and a kid that is six feet something... well, I think he has great potential. We hope that he leaves us for the next level somewhere in Europe."
Windsor was still reeling from an 11-0 shellacking in Matchweek 17 by west division leaders, Oakville Blue Devils, but head coach Zibby Piatkeiwicz said there had been improvement.
"The gameplan was to basically defend," he said.
"We had a lot of inexperience today. As you can see, we brought a young team that need games like this. You can see them getting much better every game as we go on."
"The players didn't give up," he added. "They played right to the end and that is all I can ask for."
The addition of one of Windsor's perennial top defenders in Jamar Kelly helped Piatkiewicz steady his back-line and add a measure of composure to the inexperienced side.
"We had Jamar Kelly back there, that really helped," he confirmed.
"It makes a huge difference every time we have him back there. We still gave up four goals. Am I happy? Not really. We still have to put the ball in the net, which once again we failed to do, and this is something that we need to work on."
"It's going to come down to experience and good games like this at the end of the season is really good for our younger players."
North Mississauga SC will next play Oakville Blue Devils on August 30 at Hershey Centre, Mississauga.
