As bad luck would have it, Pacific FC had an own goal in their previous game against Calvary FC, late in the game, then started against the 4-0 Calvary FC Wednesday at Spruce Meadows with the ball going off of the lower leg of Marcus Haber and into the net.

Julian Buscher put the home team up 2-0 at 67’ before Haber put away a cross at 74’.

Calvary won 2-1. They are now 5-0 and 2-0 in Cup play.

With the win, Cavalry advances to the second round of the Canadian Championship against Forge FC of Hamilton. They will play June 4 and June 12 for the finals.

The winner of those two games will take on the Major League of Soccer Vancouver Whitecaps July 10 and 24 for the Cup – the Canadian version of the English Premier League’s national championships.

The 13-team and 24-match national championship includes the three MLS teams, seven CPL teams, the two championship teams from the semi-pro -1 Ontario and the Première ligue du Soccer du Québec. The Ottawa Fury who play in the United Soccer League is also in.

Pacific FC are on a four-game road swing and do not play at Westhills Stadium again until June 23, when they host Edmonton, who they drew 0-0 in the Alberta Capital earlier this month.

Pacific FC are now 1-2-2 after five games and sit in fourth place in the seven-team Canadian Premier League.
