Toronto Ultra Try to Continue Strong Regular Season
The Call of Duty League Stage Five is the most important stage for the Toronto Ultra. With the second-place Dallas Empire in their group, they must perform well to take second place. The Toronto Ultra proved to be a force after winning the Stage Two major and are sitting in third place. However, with the Dallas Empire five points ahead, each match is important if the Ultra want second place.
The Toronto Ultra play against the Minnesota Rokkr. This match can dictate how the stage plays out for the Toronto Ultra. If they want to make second place a reality, they must win this game, as it is unlikely the Dallas Emprie will lose theirs. This match and group also gives the Toronto Ultra to separate from the New York Subliners, who are in Groupd A. In the regular season, the Toronto Ultra have played against the Minnesota Rokkr once and won. The Minnesota Rokkr are middle of the pack this season, and the Toronto Ultra should beat them in order to start off strong. However, if the Toronto Ultra do lose, they must beat Dallas in week three to even out the potential records.
The Toronto Ultra plays against the Minnesota Rokkr on Sunday, July 11 at 4:30PM ET.
