One paragraph analysis
I didn't see the match, but by all accounts, and by the scoreline, the Eddies acquitted themselves much better than they did in the opener. Two first half goals certainly left all to play for in the second half. Some might argue that this match adds more fuel to the argument that Edmonton is Canada's hard luck team in this tournament, but when the 'bad luck' this year was coming out flat and having a terrible goalkeeper, it's hard to make the case.

Canadian content report
The presence of Eddie Edward in the squad was a notable upgrade from last week. Just as in the first leg there were 6 Canadian starters, this time 4 with Ottawa.

Nobody really had this quarter final round pegged. That's reflected in the scores, with the closest predictors off by five goals. The good news is that everyone, more or less, is still in with a chance.
