    It's more of same for 'Pesch'

    By SCOTT ZERR -- Edmonton Sun

     Paul Peschisolido was a bitter man as he sat eye-to-eye with the media after Canada's 2-0 loss to Trinidad and Tobago last night.

     The wee Canadian striker not only was down-in-the-mouth about the defeat, but the manner in which he was treated during the contest.

     The Scarborough, Ont., native thought he had drawn a penalty in the 40th minute as he had his jersey tugged by T&T's Ansil Encock in trying to poke a rebound past keeper Clayton Ince.

     Peschisolido was exasperated by the non-call. No surprise, Peschisolido obviously thought. The game's officiating crew was from El Salvador - the same nation which drew the Fulham forward's wrath during a game in Burnaby, B.C., when he flicked an end-line flag at an opponent and got a red card.

     The 36-cap veteran wasn't alone in his displeasure of the referee. Many of the Canadian forwards as well as several players and staff members on the bench thought the home side had drawn a penalty kick in the 71st minute when Dennis Lawrence was signalled for a handball infraction.

     Replays on the giant T.V. screen were inconclusive but the majority of the crowd thought Lawrence had contacted the ball inside the area which would have given Canada a shot from the spot to level the score. Instead the free kick resulted in nothing and soon after, T&T scored.

     "I didn't really pay any attention to that,'' said Canadian coach Holger Osieck. "That was not the reason we lost the game. We made too many mistakes in different positions.''
