BURNABY, B.C. – A trophy, national bragging rights and a chance to qualify for the continents top tournament.

That’s what’s up for grabs for the Vancouver Whitecaps as they take on Toronto FC in the Canadian Championship finals, starting with the first leg at BC Place on Wednesday night (10 pm ET, Sportsnet).

TORONTO – Toronto FC will be able to count on at least one of their Designated Players for the first leg of the Amway Canadian Championship against the Vancouver Whitecaps (10 pm ET, Sportsnet).

Forward Danny Koevermans, who galvanized TFC with eight goals in 10 games last season, was back at full training on Monday and traveled with the team to Vancouver after being sidelined by a groin injury since mid-April.

BURNABY, B.C. – The big man has found his scoring boots once again.

It took a while for Eric Hassli to get going this season, going seven appearances without a goal to start the year, but since then, the 31-year-old has been on a tear for the Vancouver Whitecaps, bagging goals in three of his last four matches in all competitions.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – For the first time this season, the Vancouver Whitecaps have a full attacking arsenal at their disposal.

On Wednesday night in the second leg of the Amway Canadian Championship semifinals, head coach Martin Rennie demonstrated just how deadly that can be, bringing forwards Sébastien Le Toux, Etienne Barbara and Darren Mattocks (above) off the bench to make the difference.

TORONTO – Toronto FC hope they have found the key to winning in MLS play, where they have lost a league-record eight games in a row to kick off the 2012 campaign.

Going forward, they will aim to channel their determination and desire the way they did on Wednesday night, when they defeated the Montreal Impact 2-0 in the second leg of their Amway Canadian Championship semifinal at BMO Field. Doing so despite being a man down most of the game following Richard Eckersley's 16th-minute red card made it the highlight of an otherwise bleak season.

And then there were two.

Which would be a little more impressive if you ignore the fact that we only started with four.

In two weeks’ time, Canada will crown either Toronto FC or Vancouver Whitecaps FC as its club champion, thereby submitting its entry into the 2012-13 CONCACAF Champions League. It’s a plum prize, obviously, and one that TFC showed gives a club the opportunity to do amazing things.

Yet it’s still a major trophy awarded after a four-team tournament. That just doesn’t seem right.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – It was supposed to be Sébastien Le Toux's night off.

Instead, with the Vancouver Whitecaps under pressure from FC Edmonton in the second leg of the Amway Canadian Championship semifinals, head coach Martin Rennie brought his star off the bench to stabilize the situation after the visitors came to within a goal of equalizing the tie through a 54th minute goal from Yashir Pinto.
