Fresh off another scintillating weekend of Canadian Premier League action, the CanPL.ca Newsroom crew is back to break down all four games in reverse order.
Kristian Jack and Charlie O’Connor-Clarke avoid dwelling on hockey by jumping right into Valour FC’s 1-0 win over York United, as they give some much-deserved credit to the Winnipeg club’s two CF Montreal loanees, Sean Rea and Jonathan Sirois, for their heroics at IG Field on Sunday (2:50). After that, they head east to Nova Scotia, where they’re joined by Mitchell Tierney for a full discussion of a thrilling 2-2 draw between HFX Wanderers FC and Cavalry FC which featured plenty of set-piece magic and a late equalizer from Daan Klomp for the visitors (16:03).
From there, it’s all the way to the opposite coast for a chat about Pacific FC’s 2-1 home win over FC Edmonton on Saturday night. Alexandre Gangué-Ruzic joins the show first to give his full analysis of the two sides from a competitive contest (27:32). After that, Pacific midfielder Manny Aparicio drops by to share his thoughts on the champions’ start to the season — as well as his side’s “recovery day” spin class on Sunday (35:15).
Finally, KJ and Charlie return to Ontario to break down a close-fought 1-1 draw between Forge FC and Atlético Ottawa at Tim Hortons Field (48:22), and they end the show with a brief discussion of some breaking news, with dual national Marcelo Flores officially choosing to represent Mexico rather than Canada in international football (1:02:40).
