Cavalry FC beat York9 FC 2-1 in its first-ever Canadian Premier League match at Spruce Meadows Saturday. Saturday’s match was held at Cavalry FC’s new stadium, which is in the final stages of construction, at Spruce Meadows.

Cavalry FC striker Jordan Brown and defender Dominick Zator scored for the hosts. Simon Adjei scored for the visitors late-on. But it was Calgary’s new professional soccer team that carried away the three points.

Roughly 5,000 fans braved the cold weather and snow to watch the historic match at the newly built ATCO field.
