Instant classic, it was not. Though I will begrudgingly accept it because it denied Forge the three-peat and losing it at home makes the loss sting even more!

The winning goal for the Victoria club came from a free kick with just over 30 minutes left in regulation time from B.C.-born midfielder Alessandro Hojabrpour.

Forge dominated the first half with 73 per cent of possession in front of a home crowd, before conceding in the 59′ minute.

Despite the lopsided possession figures, though, it would be Pacific who found the net first. Just before the hour mark, Forge’s Elimane Cisse came through Gianni Dos Santos with a hard sliding challenge in the corner to earn himself a yellow card and give Pacific a dangerous set-piece from the side of the box. Dos Santos himself sent in the ball, and Alessandro Hojabrpour, running in toward the near post, headed the cross in to make it 1-0.

Just over five minutes later, Pacific came inches from making it 2-0, as Josh Heard took a shot from the top of the penalty area that took a slight deflection and caromed off the crossbar.

Of course the TC that likely can best confirm the larger mat pro sports win in the history of Victoria, will wait until tomorrow to comment.

It’s still a Canadian Press story with no quotes from our team.

It seems Edmonton is the first CPL team to fail financially.



VAN DIEST: New owner sought for FC Edmonton after operations taken over by Canadian Premier League

After more than a decade of trying to make pro soccer viable in Edmonton, losing millions of dollars in the process, Tom Fath and Dave Fath have blown the final whistle

They only averaged 961 fans this past season. Every team in the league was down from the 2019 attendance. Hamilton was down by 50%.

That's too bad.  Edmonton regards itself as a "soccer city"

Edmonton is one of 2 Canadian host cities when we host the 2026 World Cup (Toronto being the other).
