    For sure. It seems odd that Forge keep getting scheduled on days where TFC play. I swear it has happened 3 or 4 times now

    That one may have topped the one Valour scored on us at The Donut Box and I thought that was a lock for CPL GOTY.

    Another big weekend in the CPL. Forge needs to keep winning to maintain their spot and push for the fall title. York 9 who is in great form right now has a chance to try and take something off of Cavalry for the first time. Should be good.

    Another 3 points in the bag for Forge, big ones too! Slightly annoying that once again they have 2 games played more than cavalry. I wish the schedule was just a little more balanced.

    This week and this team really came out with the highlights over the last week. Borges and Thomas with amazing goals!

    Fury beat Wanderers 5-4 on aggregate and York 9 fall 3-2 to the Impact. Both decent showings for the CPL comes playing outside the league for the first time.

    Calvary v Whitecaps still to come tonight.

    My big takeaway so far: CPL is just as good as USL and there is no sane reason Ottawa shouldn't join CPL in 2020. Also I really think Calvary is going to win tonight.

    I agree 100%. If they do join we are then only sitting 2 expansions away from having 10 teams which would be amazing for the league. Laval would be a great start for and then maybe a team in Regina or somewhere around there,

    I kind of hope they do as well, although I hate to say it.

    Calvary take the lead, Caps need at least 2 goals now. Also I will all but guarantee somebody is getting sent off because this has been real chippy and dirty.

    No one loves being down to the lower league team, puts players on edge.

    It's not like this is a weak Whitecaps team either.

    Well there we go, for the first time in CPL history we have conquered a team from outside the league.

    Next up Forge verse Antigua.

    Very impressive showing for the CPL teams. I wouldn't want to be a Whitecaps fan, this team is bland as they come and have done nothing since coming to MLS, just a horrible franchise playing in a dome on synthetic grass with a club owner without ambition.

    Impact were very lucky to go through and this serie with Calgary should be a lot of fun.

    Yes Ottawa needs to get out of the US reserve league and join CPL very fast.

    They would get more opportunity with possible CONCACAF League spots up for grab and a very obtainable league at the moment. Plus would give young Ottawa kids a club to grow up in.

    Could not agree more with Kloke. Pretty cool seeing 3 leagues represented in the Semis of this competition.

    CPL back at it with some big games today for keeping pace. FCED with a chance to gain some ground on Forge with a win, Forge needs to win to hopefully get some momentum going on the road.

    York 90 with 6 goals today, Gattas with a hat trick.

    Forge get a point on the road, would have been a good result if they didn't give up an 88th minute equalizer.

    Cavalry draw, which makes Forges draw a missed opportunity.

    Ottawa were lucky to get out of that game with Halifax with a draw to be honest. For most of the game they were thoroughly outplayed. The CPL has really impressed in this tournament and I agree with the statement above about Ottawa needing to head over to the CPL ASAP, and should have been there this year TBH.

    How did that work out for you???

    "It's the late show from Forge FC!!!"

    Also this was the first time ever a match involving a CPL team was broadcast in the US (Univision Deportes).

    Not too bad. My team is actually winning in the field not having free spots gifted for it and is by far the most talented team in the league.

    As for this game Antigua got the away goal and since there isn’t CPL refs there to save the day for Forge, Antigua should be able to pump 5 or 6 past Forge in the return leg.

    They didn't have CPL refs today either.
