Dreaming of Canadian Glory

Battle of the North - Canadian Championship 2018
‘’A Difficult Road Often Leads To A Beautiful Destination’’
On Wednesday evening, on home turf and surrounded by a feverish crowd, AS Blainville will be carrying the flag for Quebec when Oakville travel across the 401 for what is sure to be a firecracker of a game. It is said that the longest routes lead to the most successful climbs and for the boys in navy blue, they are ready and equipped for the long journey ahead.
It is always a fairytale-like scenario to imagine a semi-professional team outlasting an entire field in a cup competition. To better illustrate, it would be the equivalent of a Serie D club winning the Coppa Italia or a Regionalliga side hoisting the DFB-Pokal in Germany. Not impossible but an extremely difficult and often improbable task to accomplish. In the eyes of each AS Blainville player, this is more than just another game and the mentality of the squad going into the Canadian Championship speaks volumes.
