No one wants to be known as the player (or the team) that gave up the first goal that broke a goalless streak, but the drought is now over for FC Edmonton. The visitors from Alberta finally scored after being shutout six games in a row. In fact, they scored thrice on Sunday at Westhills Stadium.

Tomi Ameobi scored at 32’, then five minutes later, Oumar Diouk tallied. At 79’ Bruno Zebie put the game out of reach.

Victor Blasco could have singlehandedly kept the game close, as he twice hit posts and then finally scored at the 83’ mark to break the shutout bid by Edmonton.

“We believe in ourselves and know that the score could easily be the other way,” said Blasco. “We also appreciate the great fan support that we get here (4067). We were a little bit unlucky today.”

Pacific FC controlled the majority of the play in the mid-field; however, Edmonton’s back line was solid in keeping most shots to the outside. Blasco’s goal was a long, powerful, dropping shot from 20m out.

The other way, PFC – in a league where mistakes will surely be capitalized on – they let through three crucial plays that cost three goals against.

Pacific FC’s next game will be Canada Day, July 1, at Westhills Stadium. They will host the league-leading Cavalry FC of Calgary.
