Team spirit building
It is soon the end of the indoor season. Even if the results are not the ones hoped for, Edmonton Fusion FC shows a steady progression in its gameplay. A good state of mind and interesting perspective for the future of the team.
Edmonton Fusion FC – Unicorn FC
Everything started well for the Fusion. Playing instead as striker, Fusion goalkeeper Joris Desmares-Decaux scored the first goal of the game (1-0). The team scored again by Fadi Khalil (2-0). The opponents managed to equalize just before half-time (2-2). Fusion scored a third goal by Sampson Diji (3-2). Unfortunately, a subsequent goal was denied for our players. The Unicorn players maintained pressure and equalized a few seconds before the end of the match (3-3). A disappointing result for Edmonton Fusion after such as strong start: 3-3
Sluggo’s FC – Edmonton Fusion FC
The game was intense against Sluggo’s FC. Both teams had many opportunities throughout the match. Fusion scored first by Mathieu Gascon in the first period (0-1). Fusion striker Olivier Sabourin, who brought his technique and power, unfortunately found the crossbar before the end of the first period. Sluggo’s FC equalized in the second period (1-1). The Blue and White players had many chances but the goalkeeper made many excellent saves. Result: 1-1.
Edmonton Fusion FC – Juventus II
The Fusion went up against Juventus II, playing a well-positioned and dominating game. Dominating the game, however, unfortunately does not always mean a successful outcome! The opponents had surgical precision in their attempts on goal and scored first (0-1). Fusion player, Matthew Gascon, equalized with a magnificent strike a few minutes before the end of the first period (1-1). Fusion continued to put steady pressure on this team ranked #2 in the standings. Despite excellent gameplay by Fusion, Juventus II managed to score two more goals (1-3); however, the progress displayed by the Fusion is clearly visible. Bad news for the team, Matthieu Gascon was injured and will likely be out for the remainder of the season.
