Tonight at Trillium its the semi finals of this Cup. Analysis:
EDC vs Westside. EDC are on a high after knocking off the defending BC and Western Canada Champs last round. EDC are fairly talented going forward, and love the warm weather where they can show their latin flair and perspire. Westside, on the other hand are a veteran and decorated team who now are a bit long in the tooth (those that have them). EDC will come out like they just scaled a wall and are running from the feds, and will almost overrun run all over a stretched Westside defence. Almost. Besty will then get upset with all the diving and get a yellow for dissent. Wicks will hold the defending champs of this cup in it the first half. Westside, just before half, will go up one as big Simon will physically over power the undersized EDC back line, towering over the talkative garlicy and dwarfed goalkeeper and burying just before the half. EDC will swarm the ref, and the Zapatas on the sideline will charge the field, claiming a foul on the prone little keeper. This will change things and EDC will escalate remonstrating at the official; their complaining will net them several cards. Westside will go up 2-0 at about the 65 minute mark on a free kick. EDC will actually get one back on a giveaway ten minutes from time, and EDC will run in the net to get the ball and push Wicks. This will get their #10 a second yellow and he will be sent off. putting EDS down to 10. Westside will get one more on a counter minutes from time. Final score Westside 3 EDC 1.
PCOV vs Columbus. PCOV will similarly come out strong and puffed up after their upset of the league champs in the last round. They will get one early on a header, but Columbus will quickly one back to tie it. PCOV will get a second on a set piece 5 minutes before the half, and will be up 2-1 at the break. Columbus will come out flying and display their talent on attack and will get two in the first 15 minute of the second stanza to go up 3-2. PCOV will get another with about 15 to go on another header off a set piece. Columbus will get a winner on a PCOV minutes before time on a PCOV giveaway. Final score Columbus 4 PCOV 3.
Sir M you are quite the comedian and typical kick and run enthusiast. All year EDC has been hated on but the team has kept together and proved them all wrong. Why can't teams just accept that a better team just beat them? Don't get mad that little guys beat on the big , towering, decorated veterans.
Funny how EDC small defence won 80% of ball in the air and the little goal keeper was not beaten hahaha love reading your Analysis.
The only guy I saw swarming the ref was some bald guy in the middle from the West side team who I think was speaking English... he sounded like a mad leprechaun. Happy St. Patricks Day!!!
