LyesMTL’s online diary – putting the eMLS Cup behind me

Eliminated in the knockout round, the Impact’s eSports player looking ahead

That’s the thing with knockout games; the margin for error is slim, very slim. That was the case Saturday afternoon in Boston.

After a strong performance on Friday to finish the regular season ranked fourth in the Eastern Conference, things were a little more difficult on Saturday. Against FIFA Abe from Orlando City SC, in the knockout round of the eMLS Cup playoffs, I started slow, letting him score the first goal off a counter.

Things remained difficult even though I managed to score. He used the counter-attack twice more with great success, finishing both times to take a two-goal lead before half-time. It was already too late to stage a comeback, even though I did what I could to attack. When it was all said and done, Abe won 3-1.

It’s on this disappointing game that my eMLS season comes to an end, although there’s still plenty of FIFA 19 to be played. You can always follow me during the weekend for my FUT Champions Weekend League games on Twitch, or visit me at Stade Saputo, where you can take challenge me on PS4 during every single Impact home game.
