Voyageur’s Cup: Ottawa Fury v. Halifax Wanderers

After the first leg, Ottawa were in their changing room singing “olés”. They played well in Halifax, no doubt, but Wanderers will still feel they can nab this with a strong start. They’ll need one after a sultry, sagging week of travel and poor results.

Some things were said.

One can debate the accuracy of the statement, and one can argue whether Ottawa were better off in USL or the Canadian Premier League, but make no mistake that everybody involved in CanPL has those quotes on a bulletin board tonight. Maybe even the Fury, too.

One thing about the Voyageur’s Cup is that it’s never short of drama. This is its 11th year, I’ve watched most of it every year, and I think I’ve seen one, maybe two games that weren’t completely crazy?

Midweek, Midfield, and More: Week 4 in CanPL

I’ve always liked midweek games. Apparently I’m the only one–attendance is regularly brutal at these the world over, and the Canadian Premier League is no exception. Forge drew nearly 6,000 on Wednesday before getting rained on Saturday, which actually isn’t bad at all, but boy does it look rough in a 27,000-seat stadium. Cavalry drew only 2,055.
