WINNIPEG — Dominick Zator scored the go-ahead goal in the 48th minute, and York United FC beat Valour FC 2-1 on Wednesday in Canadian Premier League play.

Lowell Wright scored in the 14th minute to help York United FC (1-1-2) to its first win of the season, while also becoming the first player to score against Valour FC in four matches this season.

Andrew Jean-Baptiste had a 5th-minute goal for Valour FC (3-1-0), who were the only remaining CPL team without a loss before Wednesday.

Also, Josh Heard scored his second goal of the season in the 63rd minute as Pacific FC (2-1-1) downed Atletico Ottawa (1-3-0).

Goalkeeper Callum Irving only had to make one late save to earn the cleansheet.

All eight CPL teams are playing at Winnipeg's IG Field for the first part of the season — a 29-day single-city stretch being dubbed "The Kickoff."
