MENU Newsroom: Marco Bustos joins for massive weekend roundup + CanMNT

In the latest episode of the Newsroom, hosts Marty Thompson, Charlie O’Connor Clarke, and Kristian Jack are joined by none other than Pacific FC attacker (and fan of the show) Marco Bustos to recap York United’s playoff-clinching weekend… And all the bizarre moments that followed.

First up, the gang recap York’s 2-1 905 Derby loss to Forge FC (2:00) and how a “gritty” York team could mount a playoff push against Forge in the first round.

Next up was Valour FC’s devastating late stab at making the playoffs, coming from three goals down to draw FC Edmonton 3-3 (12:20). The gang sheds a tear for Bustos’ former club who was a William Akio header away from getting the win. Plus, what on earth do FCE coach Alan Koch and his Valour opposite Phil Dos Santos have to say after that final 15-minute frenzy?

HFX Wanderers FC’s 1-1 draw with Atlético Ottawa (22:11) was up next – Wanderers Grounds gave Halifax a push… But it wasn’t enough. Plus, of course, we had to discuss Matthew Arnone’s sending off which almost sent Marco back off his chair.

Finally, Cavalry FC vs. Pacific FC – the playoff preview that ended with a Cavs win. What can we say about a matchup that’s been evenly split (three wins each, one draw) going into an unprecedented winner-take-all semi-final slated for Calgary?
