GUATEMALA CITY — Hamilton-based soccer club Forge FC advanced to the CONCACAF League Round of 16 after posting a 0-0 draw with Antigua GFC on Thursday.

Forge FC advanced 2-1 on aggregate after winning the first leg of the preliminary-round matchup by the same score last week in Hamilton.

The Canadian Premier League team’s cause was helped when Antigua midfielder Pablo Mingorance was issued a red card in the 86th minute.

Forge will next face Honduran club Olimpio.

Hamilton’s Forge FC currently leads the CPL fall standings with a 3-1-1 record.
