Last night Hamilton Croatia B officially capped off their season with a 1-1 draw against third place East Hamilton. It was an outcome that could have been much better, but the telling story once again was the lack of offence that plagued the team all season. Justin Taravski opened the scoring with a header for first goal of the season. Forward Rob Biturajac later managed to hit two crossbars — one also with a header, and one with a shot from 20-yards out. That’s as close a the B-Team would get to scoring again this season. East Hamilton tied it on a breakaway goal, the only blemish in an otherwise superb outing by the B-Team defence. Although the standings are not final, Croatia can finish no better than seventh-place with 28 points. The top six finishers go to the league playoffs. “It’s a disappointment because we dropped points to various teams that finished below us in the standings this season”, said goalie Frank Perin following the game. The team was however the most improved in the First Division. Croatia had 18  more points than in 2000, and the final record of 7 wins, 12 losses, and 7 draws is the best since the B-Team joined the First Division four years ago. Even with the improvements, the future of the team still hangs in the balance as members of the Hamilton Croatia National Sports Club board have mentioned that the A- and B-Teams may be combining for the 2002 season.
