Forge FC: Canadian Premier League Champions… again.
The Hamilton-based club captured its second consecutive CPL title on Saturday with a 2-0 win over HFX Wanderers FC in the 2020 CPL Final on Prince Edward Island.
A cagey affair decided by Alex Achinioti-Jonsson’s 60th-minute header, Forge flourished in a second-half resurgence to prove they’re still a step ahead of the rest of the CPL.
Halifax fans came out in (socially-distanced) droves to Wanderers Grounds to watch the game and, of course, folks brought their microwave dishes out to honour the North Star Shield.
Here’s how the Canadian soccer community reacted on Twitter to Saturday’s final.
