When he isn't scoring 13 goals in a VMSL match, Nick Soolsma is the TSS assistant. Not sure if he also plays. I have to admit I haven't seen a Rovers match at Swangard. Holding out for CPL.

Women's and men's doubleheader on Sunday, tickets $10, just saying.

I feel like Cavs are USL level and the rest of the league is closer to USL1. We just play a much more complete game than anyone else in the CPL.

I suspect familiarity is the reason for the good form. There may be a leveling effect as time passes. But if what you're saying holds true into the second half of the year, I'll wholeheartedly agree with you.

I watched two Foothills games last summer and the team played in the same way as Cavalry do right now. Always controlling posession and playing the game on their terms. It was the same at the PDL level. For this, I think the coaching staff and players deserve a ton of credit.

So far so good.

It’s a shame they are not eligible for the Concacaf league.

Would be nice to see them make it to the third round of the Voyageurs cup and give Vancouver a real test. 

I still think the exclusion from concacaf league is "facility" related. Sure, there'd be little to no problem playing at ATCO field late in Fall, but once in concacaf league, qualifying for CCL would be a real possibility. How do you play these games in February? A little difficult, isn't  it?

The 3 teams eligible for concacaf league all have turf. It may be uncomfortable, but they could pull it off. I don't see how that happens in Calgary, much less Halifax or York.

You may be thinking "Pacific have turf and nice climate, why not them"? Well, remember how some member of the club voiced their displeasure publicly? I think they got screwed because they didn't fit in the pretty little box the organizers used to justify why only Forge, Valour and FCE could compete for this edition.

I know the chances of Cavalry winning the Voyageurs Cup is slim to none, but should they pull off a miracle, the only possible solution I see is playing at McMahon stadium.

I have a feeling that it’s that familiarity. Fall season should be a bit more indicative.
