In this week’s episode of the CanPL.ca Newsroom, the editorial gang of Kristian Jack, Charlie O’Connor-Clarke, Benedict Rhodes, and Brady Reid recap the action in the Canadian Championship, and break down a couple intriguing results in the Canadian Premier League.
They begin in Hamilton (2:30), where champions Forge FC stole a point from HFX Wanderers at the very end thanks to Kwame Awuah’s cross-turned-goal — which both Charlie and Benedict were on hand to see at Tim Hortons Field. Forge found a way to get the draw, but did the Wanderers deserve a better fate (8:45)?
In CanChamp action, York United blew out League1 Ontario’s Master’s FA by a 5-0 scoreline; the gang breaks down just how important a win like that could be for the Nine Stripes going forward (15:35). Valour FC also moved on in the Canadian Championship, and looked great doing so on the road against Atlético Ottawa (21:32). Can Rob Gale’s side get back their strong form of the Kickoff?
Finally, a look at Cavalry’s big win over Pacific (26:07): Was Pa-Modou Kah right to rest Marco Bustos and Lukas MacNaughton before their own CanChamp clash with Vancouver Whitecaps on Thursday night (10 pm ET/7 pm PT, on OneSoccer)? And are Cavalry the best team in the CPL right now (34:10)?
