Canadian international Nik Ledgerwood had the decisive touch to settle the Canadian Derby, as the midfielder's late goal gave FC Edmonton a 1-0 win over Ottawa Fury FC at Clarke Field on Sunday afternoon. The Eddies have now won six games in a row at home and have lost just once in their last 10 games.

FC Edmonton (2W-1D-0L, 7 points) was reduced to 10 men when Papé Diakité was sent off for a second yellow card after a tackle on Dennis Chin near the corner flag in the 60th minute. The Eddies, though, would be the team to get on the scoresheet. Sainey Nyassi's introduction into the game in the 76th minute added speed and an attacking bite, despite the disadvantage. It paid dividends in the 82nd minute when he laid the ball across the top of the box and Ledgerwood fired the ball first time past Ottawa (0-0-3, 0) goalkeeper Romuald Peiser. It was Ledgerwood's first goal for the Eddies.
