TFC Pull Off Miracle, Win Canadian Championship


I attended the first TFC match in this 2009 Nutrilife Canadian Championship when we beat the Montreal Impact 1-0.  Then, things went south and we came into last night's game needing a win by four or more goals to replace the Vancouver Whitecaps atop the final standings.

I don't follow soccer that closely, but I appreciate how difficult it is to win by four or more goals, especially when you consider TFC had never ever scored five goals or more goals in a single game.  Throw in the fact that Montreal was up 1-0 last night, and you'd be forgiven for writing us off.

Queue the miracle.  Toronto FC managed to score six straight goals to beat the Montreal Impact 6-1 to take the 2009 Nutrilite Canadian Championship.  Dwayne De Rosario scored the first three, Amado Guevara had a couple and Chad Barrett scored the championship-winning goal in the 83rd minute.

The Voyageurs Cup is ours.  Next up, the Stanley Cup.

Montreal Merda
