Pacific Football Club (2-5-2) return to Westhills Stadium for a Canada Day matchup versus the Spring League Champions Cavalry FC (8-1-0). Kickoff in the game is set for 3:00 p.m. PST, with gates opening at 1:00 p.m.
Pacific FC found their form this past week ending a winless streak in Manitoba versus Valour FC with a 2-1 win. However, a quick turnaround with injuries to multiple players including Marcus Haber and Lukas MacNaughton gave the youngest side in the CPL a tough test versus an experienced Edmonton side. The Island contingent started an impressive seven U-21 players in Sunday’s game. Despite hitting two posts and an unbelievable goal from Pacific’s Victor Blasco, the away team found the back of the net three times to claim the victory.
The West Coast representatives will be eyeing a win on Canada Day as a positive end to the Spring Season. Pacific FC will be hoping for three points ahead of the rematch versus Cavalry only five days later on July 6th to kick-start the Fall Season.
“Boys have been excellent, we are training very well,” commented Pacific FC assistant coach James Merriman. “The players are keeping a positive mindset – always wanting to improve and we will continue to put in the work. Looking forward to Cavalry on Canada Day.”
Cavalry FC led by head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. have been impressive all season despite their unbeaten run coming to an end this past week versus second place Forge FC. The familiar crop of players that featured under Wheeldon previously bounced back, taking down York9 FC to clinch the Spring League title this past week. With the title clinched, the Alberta side will look to continue their dominance with a victory on the West Coast.
Canada Day is an important game for Pacific FC as they look to finish off the Spring Season with a win ahead of the opening game of the Fall season back at Westhills Stadium versus Cavalry FC on July 6th. Meanwhile, Cavalry FC aim to finish the Spring Season clear at the top of the table with three points at Westhills Stadium.
