ã€€ BMO FIELD - WEDNESDAY 8PM ET TV: SPORTSNET ONE
ã€€ THE KICKABOUT:
- With a 0-0 scoreline all that is needed for the trophy, will Winter resist the temptation to play
defensively and will his players have the nerve not to?
Toronto FC defeated the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 in the opening Nutrilite Canadian Championship
games. Toronto had allot to prove as they are currently the only Canadian team in the coveted MLS.
Vancouver will be joining in 2011 but the Montreal Impact will have to wait their turn.
Montreal won the Canadian Championship last year with Toronto barely defeating Vancouver for the
It's not often that the Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps
get to play each other. But with the Whitecaps entry into the MLS by 2012 the two rival Canadian
teams will get to face off once again. For Canada however the two teams have been matched again for
the Nutrilite Canadian Championship games.

The quest begins tonight for Toronto FC to try to win the Voyageurs Cup and retain their
Canadian Champions status from last year. Tonight the Montreal Impact of the USL visit Toronto to
get the ball rolling. This game will be broadcast on Sportsnet tonight at 8 pm, so check it out and
cheer on your Reds.
Tuesday night, the USL showed what it was really capable of doing. Montreal, a point out of last
place in the second tier USL-1, drew with Toronto 1-1 to win the Canadian Championship on points.
In winning the Championship, Montreal gained access to the preliminary round of the Champions
League this fall and, if they beat Nicaraguan side Real Esteli in a home and away series, will
enable USL-1 teams to enter the North American Club Rankings.
Heading to Vancouver with a one-goal lead but with the sword of the away goal hanging over TFC's heads, you wouldn't think that ramping up the excitement for Wednesday's match would be difficult. However, in the world of promotions you can never hype too much and in the tradition of terrible movie sequel titles, the 2nd Leg deserves a boost.
Solid midfielder The Canadian Club Championship - we still like to call it the NutCan because it sounds dirty - and the quest for the Voyageurs Cup is a great little tournament. There have been some terrific matches and plenty of drama in the tournament's short history. It was also TFC's only glimpse of glory in the wasteland that was 2007-2013.
Toronto FC won their second game of the Nutralite Canadian Championship, beating Montreal 1-0 on
Wednesday night at BMO Field. Chad Barrett got the only goal of the game in the 35th minute after
coming on as a 16th minute substitute for the injured Marvell Wynne. Stefan Frei needed on save for
the shutout, with Montreal keeper Matt Jordan making seven saves against a strong Toronto attack.
Somewhat shocking news out of Toronto as the 7th place Reds have a coach resign/quit/fired/asked
away. Toronto is entering the stretch that will make or break their season playing two extra
matches in both May and June (Voyageurs Cup/Canadian Championship). If you have the time watch Its
Called Football to figure out the fallout.
MLS side Toronto FC will face Vancouver and Montreal at home May 6th and May 13th.
CONCACAF Press Release:
2/24/2009 - MONTREAL – The United Soccer Leagues champion Vancouver Whitecaps will travel to
face Toronto FC on May 6 to open the Nutrilite Canadian Championship, which will determine the
country's qualifier for next season's CONCACAF Champions League.

I spent my formative years as both a player and a young man in Vancouver developing a lot of friendships throughout those years.
FC Edmonton 3-0 Carolina RailHawks FC Edmonton hopes their home win on Sunday against the Carolina
RailHawks will allow them to turn the corner on a so-far disappointing season start. The Eddies had
been winless this year in both NASL and the Amway Canadian Championship. With yesterday's victory
they are now 1-W/4-L/1-T in all competitions.
