With a penalty and a free kick, Sanjaxx's Oni Bernard (8') and Nykosi Simmons (34') got the Lions off to the right start in their matchweek 10 matchup with Pro Stars, while forward Julia Wong (73') finished it off for the Lions with a perfect 3-0 result.

"For Sanjaxx, once again their goalie [Sarah Anisha Bradbury] was outstanding making several fantastic saves," said Pro Stars head coach, Benjamin Falkenstein.


"The turning point was an early penalty goal followed by a well taken free kick goal. Unfortunately, Pro Stars narrowly missed several chances immediately after. Despite camping in the Sanjaxx half for the balance of the game, the ball did not enter the net."

Falkenstein looked for the Pro Stars' players with top work rate and attacking ingenuity when naming his MVPs, and found several worthy candidates.


"Prostars MVPs were Adrianna Krencil and Alison Lemon, who both had very high activity rates throughout the game in sweltering conditions," Falkenstein commented.

"16 year-old Alana Baba once again showed why she is one of the emerging star strikers in the province," he added. "She was incisive, hitting the post on numerous occasions, and leading the Sanjaxx centre back Lee on a dance."


With a number of new players in their ranks, Falkenstein said the technical staff would continue to focus on getting the group to gel.

"We will take away that despite having seven new players on the field we still held a significant possession and territory advantage," he concluded, "and continue to work on integrating all the new players into our system of play."

Sanjaxx Lions returns to action on Friday July 31 vs. Durham United at Kinsmen Park, Pickering - 8 p.m. kickoff. 

Pro Stars FC hosts Vaughan Azzurri on Saturday August 1 at Victoria Park, Brampton - 1 p.m. kickoff.
