Calgary United sweeps doubleheader without playing a game By Steven Sandor Posted on February 25, 2011 Comments Off on Calgary United sweeps doubleheader without playing a game 0 505 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter The aborted travel plans of the Kitsap Pumas have greatly influenced the Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League race. Calgary United will see it’s record go from 5-4 to 7-4 this weekend without having to kick a ball. This weelend’s scheduled home Professional Arena Soccer League interconference doubleheader against the Pumas was cancelled, after the Seattle-area team’s travel plans fell apart. Those games will be awarded as 1-0 forfeits to Calgary United, who entered the weekend trailing the Edmonton Drillers (6-3) by one game in the CMISL standings. The Drillers have three games left on the schedule; two PASL interleague games at the California Cougars and the San Diego Sockers, then the CMISL finale at Calgary. With Calgary getting the two forfeit victories — it looks more and more like the league will be decided on the final day of the season, and the pressure is on the Drillers to get wins in the American arenas, which feature larger nets and home teams that get more practice time than the Canadian clubs. The winner of the CMISL goes to the PASL final tournament in Cincinnati. Each CMISL team plays a number of interconference matches against the non-Canadian clubs, which count in the standings for both teams.
