We could talk about the stirring win by Arsenal’s pre-teen XI in the Carling Cup. Or we could talk about how Liverpool is finally “finding its own level”—somewhere north of Sunderland and south of Manchester City. Or maybe the riveting news out of MLS regarding changes to senior-international designation rules…and they wonder why the league hasn’t captured Joe Average’s imagination.
But instead, let’s talk about a huge match with trophy implications in not one but two competitions! Tonight, at the tranquil hour of 10 pm, the Albina-Going FC “Unicorns” take on UrbanHonking Athletic Club in the seventh round of Portland Futsal’s Winter I season. This battle will decide the coveted Rivals Cup, with the winner taking home the Golden Angel of Victory after both sides beat Dudes FC earlier this season. Meanwhile, while my beloved Unicorns have stormed to an unbeaten record so far this season, we haven’t quite wrapped up the Third Division Conference Argentina crown. A win, a draw or a narrow loss puts us into the divisional final after New Year’s.
