"I'm satisfied the way that the team ended the season," commented head coach MARIO HALAPIR after the game. "The performance tonight by all of our guys was exceptional."
York's Shaun McDonald scored the only goal of the contest at the 45 minute in injury time. The rebound came after a corner kick by Tyrone Downes and was the only ball that got by Hawk keeper Brett Harrington. The contest saw a lot of back and forth action as both teams moved the ball well.
Harrington made several key saves in the first half keeping the contest close. Throughout the contest he stopped three while his counterpart Sotiri Varlokostas also stopped three.
Included in the three was a shot by Robert Kardaras in the final three minutes of the game. The forward put the ball on net from 40 yards out, just getting knocked out by Varlokostas. Kardaras, led the Golden Hawk offence with two shots on net.
The win advances the Lions to the OUA Final Four.
"I'm pleased that our team played two playoff games this year," concluded Halapir on the season. "We have so many young players that it was important for them to experience the playoff environment."
