Happy Birthday Laba!!!

Happy 24th Birthday to our hard working midfielder @matiaslaba! As we look back on the past season, we are grateful for your massive contributions to our success on the pitch! Thank you for helping us lift our first #VoyageursCup!!! We will never forget that night at BC Place!

That occasion was made possible because of your goal away to Edmonton at the end of May, which will also live long in the memory...especially for our partners that made the trip.

That of course wasn't your only goal of the season. All of the #CapsOnTour in #PDX in July went nuts when your shot from distance, lasered its way into the back of north end goal. Those who score such goals in #CA5CADIACup matches have a special place in the hearts of supporters.

We want to thank you for more than your goals and for more than all the hard work you do in claiming the middle of the pitch for our team to operate in - we want to thank you for all the joy you bring to all your teammates in how you always are able to keep the mood light and provide some comic relief.

All our best to you & @camifreijomil as you prepare to be parents. Give our best to @juliolaba and your whole family in Argentina. Enjoy the off season and we'll see you in January!

Much Love,

One of the Collective
