Winnipeg, MB – Brandon Swartzendruber scored his first goal of the season and added a second to lead the Thunder Bay Chill to a 4-0 victory over WSA Winnipeg tonight.  Swartzendruber opened the scoring in the sixth minute placing a great shot far post past WSA keeper Dylan O’Conner.  Swartzendruber then scored the last goal of the game on WSA Winnipeg give away in their own box that he took in on goal past O’Conner and into an empty net.

The prettiest goal of the night was scored by Sergio Campano Franco when he found himself on goal against O’Conner after some pretty tic tac toe passing in the midfield.  Franco took the ball down the left side and past the keeper, placing the ball into another open goal.  Sean Reynolds also scored after finding the ball at his feet in a goal mouth scrum.

Chill head coach Giovanni Petraglia felt the team played better this evening but feels that there is still room to improve.  “I was happy with our execution this evening but we need to deal with some situations much better than we did tonight” he said, referring to a few opportunities that WSA had that could have ended up in the back of the net.  Goalkeeper Daniel Alvarado made his 2015 debut and made 11 saves in claiming the clean sheet.

Thunder Bay (3-0-2) remains undefeated in 2015 and is now tied for second place in the Heartland Division with the Chicago Fire U-23 trailing Springfield Synergy FC by one point but with three games in hand.  The Chill also have one game in hand on Chicago.  

The Chill led 2-0 after the first 45 minutes.  A power outage just after the half time whistle forced the two teams to a 30 minute delay.  Once power was restored the teams continued play where the Chill scored twice more.  

These same two teams face off again at the Winnipeg Indoor Soccer Complex with a 2:30 pm EDT start.    

The Thunder Bay Chill plays in the 63 team prospect focused Premier Development League (PDL) which is the top developmental men’s league in North America.
