CPL Week 16: Pacific Rises Above Valour

LANGFORD, BC October 19 –  Pacific FC closed the Fall season on a high, grabbing a 2:0 win over Valour FC in front of a sold-out crowd in the sixteenth game week of the 2019/2020 Canadian Premier League season.

Zach Verhoven opened the scoring in the 12th minute when the winger got on the end of a line-breaking backheel pass from Terran Campbell, slotting a chip over Tyson Farago. Another in-on-goal chip from Verhoven minutes later marked a strong first 20 minutes of play from the hosts. Valour’s chances were few and far between in the first half. A freekick from Bustos was as close as they got, challenging Pacific keeper Nolan Wirth. Valour started getting their own passing touch through the hour-mark. Snippy possession led by Marco Bustos, Tyler Attardo and Jose Galan put PFC on the backfoot at times. Pacific would, however, soon seal the win via Canadian international Ben Fisk. The captain went unmarked at the back post in the 61st minute, taking time to control the ball and place an effort in front of the Lake Side Buoys.
