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.
A huge test awaits the Huskies after they upset the Dalhousie Tigers yesterday. But this is a game every team wants to play.
Nobody is scared of UPEI–but they should be, because there’s no school in AUS better at pulling off playoff upsets.
It’s the Halifax derby–live from Cape Breton. The AUS didn’t give us a playoff race but it did give us a great quarter-final rivalry. Saint Mary’s aren’t having much of a year in the other football, so no doubt the whole campus community will be cheering on the boys tonight. No doubt.
Usually I write obituaries for the teams that are out, but the playoff race this year was a non-event so let’s not bother rehashing all of that and cut straight to the games that matter.
One of the more interesting tools to help analyze games is the game state: how does a match pan out when the score is 2 – 1? 3 – 0? On the road? At home?
One of the nice things about the university season is it just comes thick and fast. Unlike the Canadian Premier League spring season, there aren’t a lot of midweek games. Instead, you get weekend back-to-backs. Pick your poison.
As soon as I hit post on the AUS season preview, I knew large parts of it would be wrong. Some of this was just my doing it rather quickly, and some of it is the nature of university soccer.
