Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: MLS Week 15/USL Week 13

Well, that was a hell of a weekend for Canadians in MLS and USL.

As if Jonathan Osorio bagging a brace for Toronto FC in Friday’s win over Philadelphia wasn’t enough, teenage sensation Alphonso Davies put on a one-goal, three-assist performance in a win over Orlando City that dropped the jaws of everyone around MLS.

But, while Osorio and Davies bask in the afterglow of their weekend performances — and the continuing speculation of what teams will come in and make offers for them — the feel-good story of the week took place in USL.

That’s because Saskatchewan-born Drew Beckie took to the field for OKC Energy, shortly after being transferred from the Jacksonville Armada. It capped a great comeback story for the Canadian.

After the 2017 NASL season wrapped, Beckie — like most of the players in the league — was left scrambling. Would the league come back in 2018? (No.) Would he need to find a new job? (Yes.) So, he went to Scandinavia to audition for teams, but fell victim to a strange, dangerous virus. He returned to North America, but the bills piled up. An online funding campaign was launched in order to help Beckie. Fans from both Canada and the United States chipped in, as did former teammates and guys who had played against Beckie. It showed how united the soccer community can be.

The campaign raised nearly $20,000 US, a small sum considering how much community work Beckie has done. In 2015 he was named the NASL’s Humanitarian of the Year.

So, the fact he played this past weekend for the OKC Energy, well, that should have us all smiling.

Here are the rankings after the 15th week of MLS play/13th week of USL action:

    And here is how they did with their time on the field in MLS. I watched Osorio in amazement thinking “that’s it, nobody’s going to outdo that performance” and a day later my jaw was on the floor watching Davies totally own Orlando thinking “glad I didn’t bet on it”. That is the second time this year Davies has broken the 4 digit level.

    Only sad news was during the TFC broadcast the announcer was saying this is Osorio’s last year of contract with TFC. Enjoy watching him while you can because I don’t think he will be around MLS if he keeps this level of performance up.
