In an extra special late-night edition of the CanPL.ca Newsroom podcast, Kristian Jack and Charlie O’Connor-Clarke are here with their immediate reactions to Pacific FC’s monumental 4-3 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC in Thursday’s magical Canadian Championship tie at Starlight Stadium.
Covering all bases, from the incredible atmosphere off the pitch to Pacific’s relentless performance on it, Kristian and Charlie break down every angle they can think of just moments after the fulltime whistle. They spare a thought for Marco Bustos, the Tridents’ talismanic winger who missed out on the coveted Whitecaps clash due to injury, but heap praise on all the Pacific players who stepped up tremendously in his absence.
Ending the postmatch reaction show are a few listener questions, including: Did Pacific punch above their weight, or did the ‘Caps stumble (18:50)? Also, can Pacific maintain this kind of form and intensity in the next round vs. Cavalry (21:10)?
