Week 3 Preview

The Toronto Champions League enters its third week.  The first two have been competitive and so far, there isn’t much separating the 6 teams.

A Perfect Start

Maestros FC is the only team with full points from their first 2 games.  Their come from behind victory last week was a real show of character.  Metinho and his team will be looking to make it 3 for 3 when they line up against Whitewalkers FC.  If not for a last second tying goal, Whitewalkers would also be 2 for 2 heading into this match.  Haddi has scored 5 of Maestro’s 8 goals and will now face last season’s player of the year Dan McNiece.  The Whitewalkers are aiming to be “the end” to the perfect start.  Winter is coming.

The Infrastructure Derby

When Blue Lightning take the field against the All Blacks, no less than 5 players from the Infrastructure group will feature.  The Bolts have 3 of them in Vince, Scott & Brad.  They’re as good on the field as they are in the office and are looking to secure bragging rights on the 7th floor.  Nicolas Ress is expected to make his debut this week and long with Jeff McCabe, they make up the other side of Infrastructure.  There’s nothing more important in amateur sport than bragging rights and whoever wins them, will undoubtedly use them shamelessly until the next time these teams meet.

Here Comes the Juggernaut

OTPP United has lost both of their matches and are going to unleash the Juggernaut.  Two losses out of two games is unacceptable as far as JJ is concerned.  Brace yourself Bad Apples.  For their part, the Apples are up to the task and don’t feel much like losing.  Ireland just qualified for EURO 2016 and Sean Kinsella wants to celebrate with a victory in the TCL.  This game is the talk of the league and a strong fan turnout is expected.
