Another year, another final for Forge FC. Hamilton reached their third CPL Final on Sunday after downing 905 Derby rivals York United 3-1 in their 2021 CPL Playoffs semi-final at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. The result means Forge will host Pacific FC in the 2021 CPL Final on Sunday, December 5. Woobens Pacius’ opener in the opening 10 minutes put Forge on their way, though York United’s Michael Petrasso equalized before halftime with a brilliant outside-the-box free-kick that looped into the goal. A wet and intense second frame followed, punctuated by a well-worked goal from Josh Navarro, who sliced home the match winner in front of a raucous crowd. Navarro created another goal soon after when he nodded a near-post header into the mixer, eventually seeing his deflected shot find the net. Here are your sights and sounds for Sunday’s semi-final.
