If you don't mind, I would greatly appreciate your help for a school assignment. Could you guys please list any important games/matches/fights you know of in which the home side lost. By important, I mean playoffs, division/conference finals, big rivalry game (for soccer), a fight in which the home town fighter is the heavy favorite (ufc).

Thank you!

97th Grey Cup.

Saskatchewan would be considered the home team even though it was played in Calgary. Probably one of the biggest blunders ever made that cost Saskatchewan the Grey Cup.

With Montreal trailing 27-25, Montreal kicker Damon Duval missed wide right on a 43-yard field goal attempt that could have given Montreal the victory. Saskatchewan's Jason Armstead returned the missed field goal kick from inside the Saskatchewan endzone to the Saskatchewan 6-yard-line and kneeled to end the play, at which point Saskatchewan players began to celebrate what they thought was a win. However, Saskatchewan had thirteen players on the field during the Montreal field goal attempt, and referee Glen Johnson made the call of, "Illegal substitution, too many men on the field, Saskatchewan. It's a ten yard penalty, we'll repeat first down". With Saskatchewan's 10-yard penalty for too many men on the field, the Alouettes moved to the Saskatchewan 26-yard-line with 0:00 on the clock (a game cannot end with a defensive penalty) and attempted a 33-yard field goal for the win on the following play. Duval converted the 33-yard field goal to score three points for a 28-27 Montreal victory.

Not sure if this is really what you are looking for, but it's one of the first things that came to mind.

1986 Battle of Alberta. Calgary vs Edmonton. Conference Semi Finals.

In game 7 in Edmonton, score tied 2-2. Five minutes into the 3rd period rookie Oilers defenceman Steve Smith inadvertently scores into his own net. Giving the Flames a 3-2 lead that they would not relinquish.



1994 playoffs round 1. Canucks vs Flames. Canucks stave off elimination with overtime victories in games 5 and 6.

He attempted to pass the puck up the ice, not knowing the back of Grant Fuhr's left pad was in his way .

I see that now.

Someone wrote on the side of Northlands Coliseum the day after "Steve Smith Sucks" in giant letters, remember it well.

Thanks guys. I got stuck on the bad side of a debate regarding whether home field advantage exists or not and I'm on the side debating it doesn't so I figured since most research shows there is home field advantage during regular season games, I'd take the angle that home field advantage puts more pressure on the home team in important games which makes it a disadvantage.

How about the World Juniors where Canada literally collapsed in the third period. Canada was winning 3-0 at the time, and the 3rd period was about to begin. Gold was in the sights of Canada. The Russians stormed their way and scored 5 goals in the third to win the gold medal. That was a huge failure.




ok technically it was home ice advantage because even though it was played in Buffalo, it's so close to Southern Ontario that the entire arena was packed with Canadians.

1999: Canadian goaltender Roberto Luongo is beaten in overtime by fellow future Canuck, Artem Chubarov in the final of the World Junior tournament, held in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I still can't believe the 1st kick was missed, I remember that game so clearly because it was such a freak play since it was the last play of the game.
