MENU Newsroom: Late drama all around in CPL Week 6 (ft. Pacific FC’s Manny Aparicio)

Fresh off another scintillating weekend of Canadian Premier League action, the 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).
