Ongaro won’t be with FC Edmonton in 2014

Comments Off on Ongaro won’t be with FC Edmonton in 2014

Jordan Ongaro’s bid to join his hometown NASL team has been unsuccessful.

FC Edmonton confirmed Friday afternoon that Ongaro’s trial has come to an end, and that no contract was offered to the PAC-12’s leading scorer from the most recent NCAA campaign.

Ongaro arrived back in his hometown two weeks ago after he was released by the Montreal Impact. He was a fourth-round SuperDraft selection of the Impact, but was let go before the Impact headed down to Florida to take part in the preseason Walt Disney World classic.

Ongaro has represented Canada at the U-20 level and also played for the national team at 2012’s CONCACAF futsal championship.

The release of Ongaro is a little bit ironic, as a couple of years ago, the Eddies tried to convince Ongaro to leave school to join the club; but that was when Joe Petrone, the former director of soccer operations, and coach Harry Sinkgraven were steering the club. Those overtures came before coach Colin Miller took over the squad ahead of the 2013 season.
