Cavalry down Eddies to clinch Fall title with Al Classico triumph
Calgary also won the Spring season title in June
Cavalry FC captured the Canadian Premier League Fall season title on Saturday with a 3-1 Al Classico win over FC Edmonton.
The Cavs needed a win to take the title away from idle Forge FC on the final day of the Fall season. On 38 points, with a record of 11-4-3, Cavalry edges their Canadian Premier League Finals opponent by a point atop the standings.
