The game doesn’t matter in the standings, but [narrative] form matters heading into any final, and Pacific will be playing with a lot of pride. [/narrative.]
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.
Wanderers have looked good enough in this tournament that it’s easy to forget how much of a surprise it is for them to be in the second round.
Cavalry could very easily go out today. Let’s enjoy it, shall we?
Everyone is tired, but points still matter. It’s a Saturday afternoon, alright.
I really, really want to tell you this game between FC Edmonton and Halifax Wanderers won’t be a snore, but I can’t. Please, someone play attacking mids. Please.
Forge haven’t looked quite right, but they still have four points, and Wanderers are in for a test. Follow along from 8:30PM.
