Canada Championship. QF. (1st leg).

York9 FC 2 v  2 Montreal Impact.

@ York Lions Stadium.

5,252.

Well after swerving the new Canadian Premier League because of their rules re the starting line up / squad system I thought I’d have a peek at the Canadian Championship , I’ve followed it and the US Open Cup from afar for a fair few years and have now sampled both.

Both follow the trend of domestic cups in the rest of the world and bigger clubs tend to give all the squad players a game , this game at York was no different in that Impact rested 6 of their previous MLS weekend starting line up with 4 of them on the bench.

So off to York9 FC it was , they are named after the 9 districts of the area of York in Toronto , they are newly formed and were the first team to enter the new Premier League . Initially they had planned to play at the Alumni Field at York University campus while the York Lions Stadium on the same campus was brought up to speed. This was speedier than at first thought and with them being   given 3 away games to start the season , this resulted in  kicking off the home league campaign at Lions Stadium with a game against local Hamilton rivals Forge a month after the opening day fixture at Forge on the 27th of April. That first home game attracted an attendance of 4,260.

The Canadian Championship 1st leg game v Impact bettered this with a crowd of 5,252 , this was Impacts first game in it whilst for York it was their 5th  game  , winning in R1 against AS  Blainville 1-0 (AGG) and in R2 against Edmonton 3-2 (AGG).

Toronto the holders of the cup are given a bye to the next semi final round , I’d upset the MLS / USL teams by having them all in from R1. Only need 3 more clubs to be invited / qualify to have a nice figure of 16 in the competition.

On to the game and the ”Nine Stripes” gave a good account of themselves and were the better side , although they went behind on the hour to a tap in by Omar Browne after a headed back pass to the keeper went awry . They then scored 2 in the last 10 minutes , Ryan Telfer with a cracker on 83 and a poke in at the far post by Rodrigo Gattas on 88. But they gave away a 90+3 penalty courtesy of a stupid challenge by the keeper which Impact’s Saphir Taider scored and gained a draw. There was still time for York and  local boy Joe Di Chiara  to miss a sitter when clipping the bar instead of stroking ball into an empty net.

Yorks starting line up contained 9 of 11 Canadians , 15 of 18 of the squad whilst Impact had 4 of the starting line up and 7 of the squad of 18 so obviously no rules re birth for this competition.

The 3 big teams have struggled in the Q-F’s , York v Impact 2-2 , Halifax v Ottawa 2-3 & Cavalry v Whitecaps 0-0. Will all 3 progress , come on the ”Nine Stripes”.

Will keep my eye on the results from the 2nd legs when played on July 24th.
