HIGHLIGHTS: Late York9 goal splits points at FC Edmonton
Canadian Premier League

An unusual goal saw honours split between York9 and FC Edmonton Sunday with the match ending 2-2 at Clarke Stadium.

FC Edmonton’s Omuar Diouck got the match off to a flying start in the 4th minute after a lovely Ajeej Sarkaria flick-on sent the Belgian winger in on goal. Diouck placed his shot to grab his sixth goal of the season.

York9 would equalize soon after. A penalty call against Eddies defender Amer Didic sent Kyle Porter to the spot. Connor James saved the attempt, but the rebound fell to Wataru Murofushi, who slashed home his first goal for York9. FCE continued the flurry of chances soon after when a Sarkaria goal was controversially called offside.

Switching to the second half, the next big chance for either side came for FCE’s Randy Edwini-Bonsu in the 69th minute. Played in, cutting on his defender, and smashing a chance off Nathan Ingham’s ball for a corner. The Eddies would convert on that corner via Easton Ongaro. A Didic header found Ongaro, who slid the ball past Ingham from tight near-post angle.

York9 would equalize, in the 84th minute, when a looping cross from Ryan Telfer harmlessly bounced through the box and into the back of the net untouched.

Next up for York9 is a new installment of the 905 Derby as they visit the Hammer on September 8 to play Forge FC (1:00 p.m. ET, on OneSoccer). FCE will head out on the road as well, with their next match a Labour Day tilt against HFX Wanderers FC on September 2 (1:00 p.m. ET, 2:00 p.m. AT, on OneSoccer).
