Is this thing already over? For the record, I don’t think Cavalry have won the spring season yet–too many road games ahead–but they’re definitely close.
Halifax Wanderers lost another road game, which isn’t particularly interesting on its own–sometimes you lose road games–but the way they did it shows us a lot about how this league works.
Cavalry FC have developed a way of playing that suits a new league. Can it work long-term. Tommy Wheeldon Jr. has bought himself time to find out.
The Quagmire returns. Cavalry FC have a chance to go to 15 points and take a commanding lead in the CanPL spring standings.
Halifax Wanderers FC lead 3 – 2 on away goals after the first leg, and with Vaughan needing at least two goals (and not having much defense) we may well see goals again tonight.
Originally, I was going to keep this brief because, y’know, if Wanderers aren’t playing did anything really happen?
One thing about the Voyageur’s Cup is that it’s never short of drama. This is its 11th year, I’ve watched most of it every year, and I think I’ve seen one, maybe two games that weren’t completely crazy?
I’ve always liked midweek games. Apparently I’m the only one–attendance is regularly brutal at these the world over, and the Canadian Premier League is no exception. Forge drew nearly 6,000 on Wednesday before getting rained on Saturday, which actually isn’t bad at all, but boy does it look rough in a 27,000-seat stadium. Cavalry drew only 2,055.
Another week, another liveblog. This time I’m working off a stream just like the rest of you, as Wanderers head back out on the road for what I’m calling the Military Derby: Valour have built their club around Winnipeg’s military history and Halifax’s logo is based on an old fort (and also a bridge that’s constantly under repair), so why not?
