USL is kicking off their season next week. 29 clubs will participate in the season. The following are some discussion points that I think will be interesting to follow over the course of the year. - Will Whitecaps FC 2 actually follow sanctioning requirements this year, starting 6 Canadians every match? - Do any Canadians currently signed to a USL contract sign an MLS contract before the season's end? Someone like, Uccello, Levis or Riggi perhaps? - How do the Canadians on American USL clubs fare? Will be interesting to see how Laryea, Ewart, Pasher, Cox, Grant, and Murrell do among others. Laryea especially since I don't see him getting much action with Orlando City. - How do our U-17 prospects fare in USL? Eyes will be on Davies, Tabla and Chung. - Do any new Canadian wonder kids sign a USL contract before the season's end? Someone like Adonijah Reid perhaps? - Do any of the USL clubs sign someone completely outside of their academies? Someone like Dominic Russo? - Does Tosaint Ricketts sign in USL? I'm mostly kidding, but not 100%. - How many arguments in this thread about winning versus development are had in this thread?
Toronto tied things up through Jay Chapman in the 57th minute, somewhat against the run of play and with the help of a referee that blocked Tyler Rosenlund and inadvertently set up the chance. That goal sparked TFC2 into life and they looked like the only team that was going to win this thing, missing a couple of great opportunities to do so. Their cause was helped further when Victor Blasco picked up two yellow cards in the space of five minutes and was sent off in the 68th minute. The couldn't make their man advantage tell and the Whitecaps were then thrown a lifeline in the 77th minute when Mark Anthony Kaye picked up his second yellow of the game, after sending Ben McKendry flying, and the teams were level in personnel once again. Both teams had chances to win it. The 'Caps got in the better positions and will be disappointed to come away with only a draw, remaining with just one win now from their first five games.
