Cavalry FC leapt to the top of the CPL table on Thursday night, beating York United 2-1 at ATCO Field on a chilly evening in Calgary.
Although York went ahead just five minutes in courtesy of Isaiah Johnston, Cavalry managed to equalize from a corner kick in the 28th minute as Sergio Camargo managed to get it over the line. Just before halftime, Joe Di Chiara earned himself a red card to put Cavalry on 10 men, but the hosts remained strong defensively and eventually found their goal off another set-piece with just 10 minutes to go (ultimately charged as an own goal to Chrisnovic N’sa).
So, York remain just outside the playoff places, as Cavalry move up ahead of Forge and Pacific.
