ANB Futbol took all three points from the Sanjaxx Lions on Sunday evening, courtesy of goals by Belrum Vartanian (22'), Jason Mills (34') and Blake Jones (90'+).

"[THe] first goal by Belrum Vartanian broke the ice after constant pressure from ANB in the first 30 minutes," said ANB General Manager Marcelo Almeida. "The team was able to calm down somewhat and started playing a bit more controlled footbol."

ANB star attacker Jason Mills was a force to be reckoned on this day, earning him Man of the Match status.

"Jason was a constant threat all game, despite Sanjaxx double-teaming him whenever he received the ball," said Almeida. "He created opportunities for team-mates, took on defenders, and scored a goal."

Despite conceding three goals, Almeida was quick to identify the Sanjxx keeper as the Lions' outstanding player in this match. 

"Matthew Zaikos came up with several key saves, especially in the first half to keep Sanjaxx in the game," said Almeida. "He controlled the back line, and was very dominant with crosses into the box."


Despite the victory, Almeida recognizes a number of key elements for the King City, ON based squad to work on during the coming week's training.

"Unforced errors resulted in clear goal scoring opportunities for Sanjaxx," said Almeida. "Passes were awry, individual touches were off, and untimely tackles resulted in ANB players having to quickly recover."

"The team will continue to work on its defensive shape, and to work more as a unit in defending attacking plays and breaking forward out of the back."

Both clubs are in action again on May 30, with ANB Futbol playing host to Woodbridge Strikers, while Sanjaxx go to Scarborough, ON to take on Master's FA Saints in hope of earning their first win of the season.
