Eddies Look To Finish On A High Note In Season Finale

Jacksonville has its last chance to pick up a road win, as Edmonton looks to give its home support one more strong performance

FC Edmonton welcomes Jacksonville Armada FC for the final game of its 2015 NASL season on Oct. 25 at Clarke Field at 4:00 p.m. ET. It is the second of back-to-back matches for the two sides, who put on a thrilling 3-2 contest last weekend at Community First Park in Florida. 

The Eddies endured played their four most recent games on the road, including a three-game, seven day swing on the East Coast, that concluded last week against Armada FC. The team was unable to capture the points needed to stay in the postseason conversation and will wait to next season for postseason qualification following the Fort Lauderdale Strikers’ scoreless draw against the San Antonio Scorpions on Wednesday night. 

Jacksonville’s inability to win on the road throughout the entirety of its inaugural NASL season is a major factor the team will be on the outside of the NASL postseason picture also this season. The Florida-based team was riding a four-game undefeated streak heading into their most recent match on Oct. 21 that included three victories and a draw, but was unable to withstand Ottawa Fury FC’s attack, falling, 3-1, to the Fall Season Champions to end their postseason ambitions.

Edmonton and Jacksonville have met twice this season, with Jacksonville collecting all six points from the Eddies. The initial meeting of the season ended with a 3-1 Armada FC victory in the Eddies in the seeason opener. More recently, the two teams engaged in an entertaining 3-2 match that ended in Jacksonville’s favor and all but ended Edmonton’s hopes of a postseason berth. With nothing to lose for either side this weekend, Sunday’s match has the potential to be yet another entertaining fixture.

“We will give it maximum effort here to finish the season on a high with a positive result and positive performance,” FC Edmonton head coach Colin Miller said. “We owe it to our owners, Tom and Dave Fath, and to our fans who have been fantastic this season. We will do all we can to get a positive result and finish this season on a high.”
