United tallies twice in second half to slip by Master’s FA

GUELPH – Guelph United scored twice in the second half then held on to edge Master’s Futbol Academy Saints 2-1 in a battle between the last two League1 Ontario Men’s Premier soccer champions.

United took league honours last year in their inaugural season, a season shortened by the global pandemic, while Master’s won the title in 2019. The 2020 season was a victim of COVID.

With the win, United moves into a four-way tie for second in the 22-team league with a 3-1-1 record. North Toronto Nitros lead at 5-0-0 and are followed by Vaughan Azzurri at 3-0-1 and United, Simcoe County and Unionville Milliken all at 3-1-1. Master’s are 22nd at 0-4-1.
