CSL CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYOFFS SATURDAY……….Quarter-finals underway
The Canadian Soccer League playoffs get underway at Esther Shiner Stadium in mid-town Toronto this coming Saturday, August 13 when four teams, Continentals FC, Toronto Falcons, the current CSL champions Scarborough and BGHC 1 will play two quarter-final games in their bid for the CSL Championship.
The winners will then draw against league title winners Serbian White Eagles and runners-up York Region Shooters, both teams gaining a bye to the semifinals after finishing one-two in the final regular season standings. The semifinals are scheduled for August 20, to be followed by the CSL Championship Final the following week.
Final positions in the league standings, which determined the playoff schedule, were delayed following the abandonment of the Continentals FC vs York Region Shooters last game of the regular season on August 6 and which was eventually ruled as a 0-0 draw which placed York Region Shooters in the runner-up position and Continentals FC in fourth position in the table.
