Hamilton Croatia continues to galvanize relationships with organizations and individuals who make us better!

Two coaches from Dinamo Zagreb have been working with our coaches and teams for three weeks in June and July.

Ugo Klingor and Sasa Kanizar have been developing our coaches and individual teams teaching them the “Dinamo way”.

We are very fortunate to have these talented coaches from the Dinamo youth system join us this summer to help further develop our youth soccer program. We look forward to a long partnership with these coaches, and clubs like Dinamo Zagreb, as they help develop our young athletes and maintain the ties to our Croatian roots.

Please join us in welcoming them to our park when you see them around.

We would also like to thank the Lulich Family for their sponsorship of this endeavor and hosting them at the Comfort Inn in Burlington during their time here with us.

They Did It Again!

On Friday, April 7th the Hamilton Croatia’s men’s indoor league — the CISL — culminated with the Živko Cup.

The previous week the top eight teams battled it out in the quarterfinals to reach the final night, in what has become the annual tradition of playing the semifinals and final in the same night. The games are always followed up with the post-season party at The Club.

Poskoci, 2017 Playoff Champions

Poskoci — the Snakes — 2017 Playoff Champions.

The two semifinals were tight affairs. On field one, the favoured Snakes, coming off another league title in which they finished 15-0-1, defeated fifth-seeded Holivud Hrvat 1-0 on a goal by Petar Gavran.

The game was a classic goaltending duel between the other Gavran sibling, young phenom Luka, and grizzled veteran Frank Perin, with both netminders putting on a show for the fans with some point-blank saves.

Field two featured the upset of the night as third-seed Vukovi scraped by Petrinamo, who many thought would be the Snakes biggest threat for the Cup.

In the final, the Poskoci scored twice and defended well, but the Vukovi managed a late marker to tie the game 2-2. It then came back down to the goaltending of Gavran in the penalty shootout, as he stopped 2-of-3 en route to the victory.

Honourable mention (because we don’t announce MVPs) goes to Poskoci midfielder Mark Poklecki who set-up two goals and was a stalwart on both sides of the ball throughout both the semifinal and championship game.

For this year’s (and past) playoff results, check the CISL Playoffs page.
