It was Cavalry FC’s day on Saturday.

The Calgary-based outfit was victorious in its inaugural match at home, eventually edging York9 FC 2-1 in a nervy and snowy day at Spruce Meadows.

Calvary started the match in control with a number of chances and stand-out attacking plays, though it didn’t take long for Jordan Brown to break down York9’s door down. The English striker became the first goalscorer in Cavalry’s club history in the 26th minute, scoring with a nodded effort from just a few yards out off a corner kick swung in by Julian Buscher and first assisted by Jay Wheeldon.
