CANADIAN GAME POSTPONED
Due to inclement weather, a game between the Toronto and Vancouver FC have been postponed. Now Vancouver's goal will be erased and the clock reset to zero when the Whitecaps and Toronto FC meet again July 2 to finish what they started.
Canadian Soccer Association officials announced Thursday they'd postponed the Nutrilite Canadian Championship final after Wednesday night's game was abandoned due to lightning and rain.
The Whitecaps were leading 1-0 on a goal by Eric Hassli and 2-1 on aggregate in the two-game, total goals series when officials sent both teams off the water-logged BMO Field pitch in the 60th minute.
Under the Canadian Championship rules, the game must be replayed in its entirety, a rule that frustrated Whitecaps coach Teitur Thordarson and had Vancouver fans crying foul.
