Eddies get a late lift
FC EDMONTON 1, JACKSONVILLE ARMADA FC 0
EDMONTON — A late penalty kick by Daryl Fordyce gave FC Edmonton a 1-0 win over the Jacksonville Armada FC at Clarke Field on Sunday.
Edmonton, which has already clinched a post-season spot, improves to 10-5-6, 36 pts Fall/15-8-8, 53 pts overall while the Armada fall to 4-9-8, 20 pts Fall/5-14-12, 27 pts combined.
Three minutes into stoppage time, Armada defender Mechack Jérôme was whistled for a trip on Edmonton’s Sainey Nyassi on the edge of the 18 yard box. At first glance the officials awarded a free kick to the Eddies.
However, the call was over-turned and penalty kick was awarded to Edmonton. Fordyce put the game winner past Miguel Gallardo to give the Eddies their second win over the Armada all-time.
