Fun match to watch!

Both teams playing better this half. Ottawa controlling play but HFX looking dangerous.

Bogus offside denies HFX equalizer but a nice little run in the area and HFX find a way.

And just like that it is 3-2 Ottawa. Where are they finding all these beautiful finishes? I wonder what the odds would have been on a 4-4 draw!

Of course it was a bogus offside , that’s why I love VAR , yes it has its problems but it would have most likely called that a goal if it went to VAR it’s 2019 not 1919 bring on technology!

What an emotional roller coaster that was!

Thiago scores a brilliant opening goal and most of us in the stands are praying the floodgates don't open up,  but I'm proud of how the Wanderers hung in there to level and then tie it up again in the second half.

The crowd was rather irritated at the disallowed goal as it looked good from my angle and then the Fury get the winner.  I have to say that #58 (Barnathan) well I don't have anything good to say about him.

Then the craziness after the final whistle as Barnathan talks trash to someone from the Wanderers (couldn't pick out who) and then when a couple of our guys go to confront him, he races to the dressing room.

On a more serious note for the Wanderers was the shouting match between Langwa and Hart.  Langwa stormed to the locker room after being subbed and did not come back and then the two almost came to blows at the final whistle as the players clapped the fans off at the Kitchen end.

I'll leave it to Grasshopper to confirm what I saw but Langwa's days may be numbered.

Great game and another great crowd!

Wow what a special night at Wanderers Ground. What a ride i'm emotionally and physically drained but still buzzing at the same time. Some random thoughts in point form.

1) I disagree Ottawa was clearly the better team. I'm not disputing the point however I think the Wanderers should have came away with the draw. I will however say Fury had some clinical finishing.

2) Atmosphere was unbelievable - the stands were jammed standing room everywhere was 3 or 4 people deep it had a championship feel to the evening. Very Special.

3) Perea makes Wanderers another team altogether. I think we can contend for to of the fall table if we stay healthy.

Now to Terry's point after the whistle was wild! I just spotted it in progress and said to my buddy 'I think Stephen Hart is gonna drop him'. I didnt know at the time it was Langwa but that was a massive exchange. Went on for a minute after I fist spotted it. It was close from my view to coming to blows.

I mean im not sure how you come back after that one. You cant do that on the pitch. Thats something for behind closed doors. However maybe he gets a break because he is young and apologizes? Hard to say.

I suspect the Fury organization, after tonights match experience, are probably carrying at least some small portion of envy and regret.  To be fair though, I think more than one CPL partner are also looking at what Wanderers have brought to CPL with some envy and admiration as well.

So all that talk from Ottawa Fury fans and organization claiming USL was leagues above CPL went flying out the window tonight

To be fair, the Fury did something neither MLS side could do.

9 goals scored on the night and I'd rank the MLS goals 8th and 9th.  The runt of the litter and it's ugly twin.

I think Ottawa would definitely be top 3 in the CPL, and a strong contender for 1st. Based on watching that one match of course. They knocked the ball around well and their finishing was clinical. Not super strong at the back though.

Where would you place the MLS sides, based on a single match?

Well I'd place at least one near the bottom of MLS.

And based on what I saw, I think that is fair.  But to me that simply proves @Ansem's point that there is no categorical difference between the Fury's quality and the quality of CPL teams (keeping in mind that Halifax finished exactly mid-table in the Spring season).  Small sample size acknowledged, but I think this was a good advert for CPL.

You are right about the offside .If you freeze the video it's obvious that the Fury defender in middle kept Bona onside
