Major League Soccer's two Canadian teams, the Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC, go head-to-head in the first leg of the Canadian championship at Empire Field in their first meeting since the opening game of the MLS season (10 p.m., Rogers Sportsnet in Canada; Sportsnet stream).
Toronto FC has won the last two Canadian championships but has never won in Vancouver in three previous tournament meetings. The Reds also fell at Empire Field on March 19, 4-2, when Eric Hassli's brace was the difference.
The Whitecaps will look to protect home field and gain an edge to secure the elusive Voyageurs Cup. The winner of the title will be entered into the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary round, where it will face Nicaragua's entry into the tournament in July.

1-1 tie. good result for TFC heading home next Wednesday for the 2nd leg. Hassli and Maicon Santos with the goals.
So he’ll be at Montreal next season then
Yeah right…No Canadian team would want him.
hargreaves is on the radar.
Vancouver is a playmaker away from being a really nice team…I wonder if they have anybody on the radar…
Hassli’s got a leg on him.
And don’t stop until you find two teams that don’t have a chance of making it to the group stages of the concacaf champions league (half-joking).
Wow that the worst officiating mistake I’ve seen all year.
That’s the most clear cut penalty you could ever get as an official. No ball, complete contact, and well inside the box on a breakaway.
Keep looking until you find a bunch of Amway commercials, you’ll know you’re in the right place.
Got it now
I checked Sportsnet, but could’t find the stream. Is it there, or somewhere else.
That stream has been open all night. I wonder if the CSF had the express written consent of Major League Baseball to stream the Blue Jays game.
