Teams going home
Impact doesn't live up to their pre tournament No4 ranking and flies home early to Edmonton in their private jet. The list also includes the 2 'Afters' teams from Chicago and San Diego and crowd favorite Avalanche who finished last as they lost all their 5 matches. Dogs had a bad weekend - started badly and couldn't get it back together in time to make it to Sunday. Infamous goes(scrapes) thru on points despite having the same scoreline.
