At the beginning of a new charge forward, Tommy Wheeldon Jr. has tweaked the strategy, honed the tactics and the timing. And it still may not be enough.
When you have a tournament, this is the kind of game it’s about. Both Forge and Cavalry need a result, plus it’s Forge and Cavalry–by far CanPL’s best rivalry so far.
Tommy Wheeldon Jr. is dragging Cavalry forward despite battle scars and missing limbs. Bravery, to be sure. Foolhardy? We shall see.
Pacific are the team that always upsets Cavalry. If they do it here, they’ll have a real chance of making the final.
