But the soccer club, which has faced challenges this season as a result of searching for a new ownership group, will be buoyed by having won its first game of the CPL season over the weekend.
The Eddies defeated Atlético Ottawa 1-0 at home on Clarke Field on Sunday. Midfielder Bicou Bissain, who was acquired by FC Edmonton on loan from Pacific FC in April, broke a 0-0 deadlock in the 65th minute of the match.
He headed the ball into the net, converting on a corner kick by teammate Azriel Gonzalez.
Edmonton dominated Ottawa in terms of shots on net during the match 6 to 1.
The Eddies’ seven points on the season see them currently sit at the bottom of the CPL standings with one win, four draws and seven losses.
Sunday’s match between FC Edmonton and Cavalry FC will kick off at 5 p.m. local time at Spruce Meadows’ ATCO Field just outside Calgary.
