FC Edmonton vaulted to the top of the Spring Season Standings, at least for a few hours, after the Eddies defeated Carolina, 1-0. The win was the second straight for Edmonton, which is on a five-game unbeaten streak. The RailHawks are winless in their last four, including three losses.

Both teams probed the opposing defense in the first half, but no one succeeded in breaking through during the wet and cold matinee on Sunday afternoon. But near the end of added time, Edmonton’s Dustin Corea unleashed a left-footed shot that Carolina (4W-1D-3L, 13 points) goalkeeper Brian Sylvestre parried away as the half was whistled to a close.

As the rain picked up in intensity at Clarke Field, Carolina came close in the 50th minute when Nazmi Albadawi’s crossing pass was headed inches over the crossbar by Kareem Moses.

The Eddies (4-2-2, 14) grabbed the lead in the 78th minute on a clinical penalty kick by Daryl Fordyce. The spot kick was called after Carolina’s Connor Tobin wrestled Albert Watson to the turf during an Edmonton corner kick.
