Path To 2012/13 CCL Starts Now

Toronto will look to repeat as Canadian champions
a fourth time for Champions League chance


NEW YORK - Three-time defending champion Toronto FC will face Major League Soccer expansion Montreal Impact, and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC will play FC Edmonton in the Amway Canadian Championship.

Both series will begin Wednesday, May 2, with Montreal and Edmonton hosting first legs with the second a week later in Toronto and Vancouver.

Toronto defeated Edmonton in last year's semifinals and then rallied to beat Vancouver in the second leg of the final - a match that had to be replayed after the initial attempt was abandoned due to lightning and torrential rain. Toronto went on to reach the semifinals of the 2011/12 Champions League before being eliminated by Club Santos Laguna of Mexico.

Montreal, which won the title in 2008 under a different structure, is playing as a first-division side for the first time, having elevated its status as MLS' 19th team.

The new year also has brought in a name change in the title sponsor the Canadian club championship, from the Nutrilite brand of health supplements to its parent company Amway.

ACC Recap:
Whitecaps leave Edmonton with 2-0 victory



The Major League Soccer side left Commonwealth Stadium with a 2-0 aggregate advantage over FC Edmonton after the first leg of their Canadian Championship semifinal on Wednesday through goals from Eric Hassli and Atiba Harris.

Hassli’s 18th-minute effort was his first goal in 18 matches, as he slid a low effort past goalkeeper David Monsalve. Omar Salgado made the play by beating fullback Paul Hamilton down the left side before cutting the ball back for the big Frenchman to fire home.

The Whitecaps doubled their lead in the 41st minute, and once again Salgado was the catalyst. Hassli sent the Texan into a good position in the box, and Salgado beat his marker before hitting a fine chip over Monsalve’s head. The ball bounced off the post, but Harris was there to control before tapping home for the 2-0 goal.

ACC Preview:
Whitecaps FC look to advance to Amway Canadian Championship final



Holding a two-goal advantage from last week’s first leg, Vancouver Whitecaps FC (1W-0L-0D in ACC) host North American Soccer League (NASL) side FC Edmonton (0W-1L-0D in ACC) in the second leg of their 2012 Amway Canadian Championship (ACC) semifinal on Wednesday evening.

Martin Rennie’s side return to Bell Pitch at BC Place just four days after earning a memorable 2-1 victory over Western Conference rivals San Jose Earthquakes in an eventful Major League Soccer clash on Saturday afternoon. Currently on a four-match winning streak, the ‘Caps look to book their ticket into this year’s ACC final by getting past their Western Canadian rivals in Wednesday’s second leg, with the Blue and White hosting The Eddies for the first time in club history.

10-man TFC top Impact 2-0, back to finals

After another week of turmoil, 10-man TFC pulled out a 2-0 win over the Montreal Impact on Wednesday at BMO Field for their first win in any competition in nearly two months.

ACC:
Late barrage books 'Caps place in final



VANCOUVER, B.C. – It got a bit hairy at times, but the Vancouver Whitecaps are through to the Amway Canadian Championship final mostly thanks to two goals from Sebastien Le Toux.

Vancouver’s 3-1 win over FC Edmonton at BC Place on Wednesday gave the club a 5-1 aggregate win over the two-legged tie.

Yashir Pinto put the scare into the ‘Caps on 54 minutes and put Edmonton within a goal of levelling the tie, before substitute Le Toux beat David Monsalve with a goal in the 75th minute and tallied a second in the 87th minute.

Darren Mattocks, making his return from burn injuries suffered in late March in a cooking accident, scored an insurance goal with the game’s final kick to round out the win.

It's time for a true Canadian Open Cup

With three MLS teams North of the Border, another in the second-tier NASL and a second to come in Ottawa in the next couple years – not to mention the ever-growing and improving ranks of amateur clubs in Canada – why haven’t we figured out a better way to do this?

Canada has grown so much in soccer terms over the last decade. The game has never been healthier, the country is set to host the Women’s World Cup in three years and even FIFA president Sepp Blatter says the big ticket – the men’s World Cup – may not be far behind.

So why can’t Canada do what the rest of the world does, and have a good old-fashioned Canadian Open Cup tournament? Its time has come, says former national team captain Jason deVos.
