The June 20 game against Valour FC dealt a few blows to Pacific FC with Marcus Haber and Lukas MacNaughton going down with injuries. Victor Blasco and Terran Campbell scored the team’s two goals.

Pacific FC is looking to replicate Wednesday’s performance this weekend in front of the home crowd.

“Thursday night’s win was huge for us as a group, not just because of the result but because of the way we got it,” said Pacific FC midfielder Ben Fisk. “We got back to the style of football we want to play and put in a great performance that now we can build off going into the Edmonton match. With four games in a row at home now it’s a great time for us to be hitting stride and hopefully go on a little run to end the spring season.”
