Pacific FC beat 10-man Valour FC 3-2 to move top of the Canadian Premier League table at Starlight Stadium in Victoria Sunday.

The game started out slow with Pacific carrying the possession and not really forcing the play.

But the first goal came in the 20th minute with Manny Aparicio getting his head on a cross from Marco Bustos. Pacific continued to press and in the 26th minute Tony Mikhael  received a straight red for a high boot to the face of Nathan Mavila after only being on the pitch for four minutes.

Alejandro Diaz made it 2-0 Pacific in the 33rd minute.  Pacific’s Kunli Dada-Luke scored an own goal in the 42nd minute attempting to deal with a William Akio cross.

Josh Heard is fouled in the Valour box in the 45th minute. But Bustos was denied on the resulting penalty by Valour keeper Jonathan Sirios.

Pacific did get their third goal in the 56th minute when Heard scored, again set up by Bustos. Valour were awarded a late penalty and Moses Dyer put it past Callum Irving in the games final action.
