Hume scores for Doncaster in win over Haber’s Stevenage side


In a battle between Canadian strikers, veteran Iain Hume got the better of Marcus Haber.

Haber’s Stevenage side hosted Hume and his Doncaster Rovers mates Saturday in English League One action. And not only did Hume score, but Rovers took the match 2-1 thanks to a stoppage-time headed goal from Robert Jones.

Hume drew Rovers’ level in the 79th minute.

Both Haber and Hume played the full 90. Haber was part of the national U-23 team that went to the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament in 2012. Haber scored in the loss to Mexico that eliminated the Canadians.

Hume, a national-team veteran, provided the only bright spot in Canada’s 8-1 loss to Honduras that eliminated Les Rouges from World Cup qualifying. Hume’s second-half free-kick goal offered a little bit of consolation during what was arguably the worst day ever for our men’s national-team program.

Doncaster sits joint top of the League One (third tier of English football) with Tranmere Rovers, the team with which Hume rose from the youth ranks to first-team soccer in England. Earlier this year, Hume scored a match-winner for Doncaster against Tranmere.

Stevenage sits just three points outside of one of the promotion playoff spots.
