(Sports Ed. Note: Thanks to William Ysaguirre for scoring details on games from Tuesday to Saturday of last week. CSSSA President, Deon Sutherland apologized today for his report being late and “incomplete as it does not have goal scorers,” since “my laptop was stolen at the MCC while at the game” last week. We sympathize deeply with Mr. Sutherland’s plight, and understand all too well the inconvenience.)
