while Cape Breton are the “home” team, this is very much a road game, in what could easily have been a final had the draw panned out differently. Cory Bent, Charlie Waters, and Peter Schaale were getting a lot of love after yesterday’s display, but this will be their key test.
While neither team managed the brilliant moments of Cape Breton or Montreal yesterday, this may quietly be the better semi-final, as both sides are capable of some run-and-gun football and catastrophic mistakes at the back. That’s a semi-final in a nutshell.
Game. Four. Sentences are only going to be about this long. Weird things always happen in the last game. Always. Carabins. York.
Is the Calgary Dinos logo the worst in sports? It’s close. And it kills me, because the university itself has a crest that would be an all-time great football club logo.
The nice thing about Montreal is you can always count on it to be clear about where you’re at. Mount Royal is more or less in Montréal. Outremont is on the outer side of the hill.
So it begins. So it will likely end for St. FX, up against maybe the hottest team in the country led by a crew of young players hungry for Canadian Premier League opportunities.
It may not have been a terrific playoff so far. Fortunately, these teams don’t like each other and there’s a banner on the line.
Here we all are at the end of the road. This afternoon (or tonight, on CBC), somebody gets the keys to the castle.
A huge test awaits the Huskies after they upset the Dalhousie Tigers yesterday. But this is a game every team wants to play.
