The inaugural CanPL/USPORTs draft presented a completely clean slate. Draftees were actually the first players formally affiliated with the new clubs, and many went on to have a lot of success. That, in turn, increased both expectation and attention for the 2019 draft.
Dylan makes some educated guesses for Monday’s CanPL draft, looking at the best unlikely USPORTs heroes from across the country.
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’s mostly the same teams in contention–now all minus a key player or two that made them dynasties. Room for an upset? Or just another Carabins – Capers final?
