The liveblog returns in time for Wanderers to “host” Pacific in Winnipeg.
Wanderers are now 0-2 in both lightning delays and games played. Tonight could easily be 0-3.
Our first Wanderers liveblog of the year kicks off against Pacific. It’s a rivalry on the field and often in the stands, and a good test for Wanderers in Match #1.
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?
