CSL: Kingston FC 1, York Region Shooters 1

After last week's first full and proper CSL game in Kingston (a 4-2 loss against the TFC Academy, covered in full on Waking The Red and the Kingston Whig-Standard), Kingston FC was prepared to look for their first win of the young CSL 2012 season against the York Region Shooters.

The CSL Division II game was played immediately beforehand and despite fighting back to a 3-2 scoreline late in the game, the Kingston FC Reserves dropped the game by a 4-2 result, a definite step up on last week's 10-0 scoreline!

The game kicked off with Kingston FC wearing blue and the York Region Shooters dressed in white, and Kingston attacking the north end of the pitch.
