CSL 2012-2013: Sporting bring it to Iberia and referee bailed them out!
Tuesday May 7, 2013
Unlike last week Sporting came prepared for their match against top seed Iberia. With a full cast Sporting easily dominated Iberia and took the lead after 15 minutes. The level Sporting played with was exceptional. It was a glimpse into the future. Sporting has finally become a contender for the Metro 1 championship and promotion. However a defensive mistake with a minute left allowed Iberia to level the score before halftime. Sporting however remained cool and knew a Iberia loss was inevitable. Terrol Ishmael had already forced a substitution in the Iberia backline. However the second half was never played. The referee accused Sporting of having 'fake passes". Nothing was proven but Iberia and Sporting were content with the draw. The league will decide on the outcome shortly. Sporting are hoping to receive the 1 point draw to fiinish the season .500. The last time Sporting finished with a .500 was 3 seasons ago when they missed finishing first by 3 points.
