CPL Week 11: Forge Maintain Pole Position After Valour Win

WINNIPEG, AB August 18 – Forge FC have maintained their status quo at the top in the eleventh game week of the 2019/2020 Canadian Premier League season.

A 3:1 away victory over Valour FC moved Forge to first place in the league table at a time where the club is looking to keep rolling at all levels of competition. The win is made more impressive by the accounts of the Forge players who, despite a 1:0 lead at halftime, did not feel they had played near their best. Once again Anthony Novak was the difference maker in Winnipeg. The forward scored twice, including the eventual match winner for Forge. Thus far, the Hamilton side have been no slouch at any stretch of the first year national league. Despite a runner up performance in the Spring Season and a 4-1-1 start to the Fall, the club feels they are just hitting their stride with a run of important matches ahead.
