Vancouver, British Columbia (March 25, 2013) – FC Edmonton is set to take on the Vancouver Whitecaps FC in the second game of the 2013 preseason.
The teams will square-off on Tuesday, March 26 at Thunderbird Stadium on the University of British Columbia campus for 1pm.
The ‘Caps Reserve side has played three games this season, racking up a 2-0-1 record. They are currently coming off a 3-1 win over the SFU Clan, only losing to the University of British Columbia in their first game of the season.
FC Edmonton is flying high after a promising inter-squad game on Saturday. However, it is far from Head Coach Colin Miller’s style to become complacent.
“The lads looked really good in the inter-squad game but the Whitecaps will be a different beast all together,” he said. “I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ll do against the team I have some familiarity with.”
The Eddies look to display a vast improvement over last year’s disappointing performance in the attacking third of the field. The partnership between Eddies veteran Michael Cox and Northern Ireland newcomer Daryl Fordyce looks promising considering that the duo contributed four out of the Blue team’s seven goals in Saturday’s game.
