MLS Cup: FC Dallas vs Colorado Rapids

MLS Cup Trophy

This year’s MLS Cup to be held in Toronto will be full of surprises, but the weather is not one of them.

For mid-November in Toronto a couple of degrees above 0 is not something to complain about, but for many players competing in Sunday’s MLS Cup, the weather will bring a shock to their system.

By the time the game kicks off at 8:30pm, the temperature should be far below the daily high of 8, but the FC Dallas and Colorado Rapids players have far more important things on their mind.

“I mean it’s the championship,” said Dallas player Atiba Harris originally from St. Kitts and Nevis. “I don’t think the cold weather’s going to bother us, especially when we’re competing in the most important game of FC Dallas history.” Dallas is led by the MLS Most Valuable Player, David Ferreira.

Toronto Gets Behind Reds

TFCToronto FC tickets are in high demand. Leading up to the first season, team owners, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, did not expect the MLS team to be as popular as it was. They were hoping for an attendance of 13,000 to 15,000 fans per game at BMO Field, which has a capacity of 20,148 seats. Beyond anticipation, the bustling, multicultural city of Toronto got behind the “Reds,” and has continued to exceed expectations. Continue reading

“We were ready to go, we were ready to compete, we were ready to press them,” Toronto FC coach Preki said of his team’s quick start at last night’s game.

Compete is exactly what Toronto FC did yesterday evening at BMO Field. The Reds came out strong, scoring their first goal just 3 minutes into the game off of a header in the penalty box by Martin Saric. It took until the second half for five time CONCACAF Champions, Cruz Azul, to realize what had hit them.

Not many people were expecting the Reds to be ahead 2-0 going into the second half. Continue reading

The Reds Defeat Motague But It Ain't Over Yet

In the first game of the CONCACAF preliminary round yesterday, the Toronto FC defeated CD Motague 1 to 0 at BMO Field.

ChadBarrettThe game’s only goal came at the 20 minute mark when Dwayne De Rosario split the defense, leaving Walter Flores, the Motague goal k eeper, alone with TFC’s Chad Barrett who was able to put a left footed kick to the back of the net. Toronto FC was hungry for another goal, and dominated the majority of the game play, including the shots (13 – 4), but they were unsuccessful.

A number of TFC players expressed their frustration with not being able to widen the lead in this aggregated series. As De Rosario put it, “Another day we finish one or two of those chances and we go to Honduras with two or three goals up … We did get the win, the 1-0, but we know it’s very tough going to Central America and playing.” Continue reading

The game this weekend will be a good indicator of how the Eastern and Western MLS conferences compare, as well as how far the Toronto FC has come in the 3 years since they entered the MLS.

The two teams have had similar runs the last two seasons, finishing within one point of one another. This year, they are both sitting in third place in their division with FC Dallas at 25 points and Toronto FC at 22. Continue reading
