A pair of goals by forward Zack Schilawski and one from midfielder Nazmi Albadawi gave the host Carolina RailHawks a 3-0 victory over Ottawa Fury FC at WakeMed Soccer Park on Saturday evening.
The crowd of 4,294 saw the RailHawks win their first game of the NASL Fall Season when Schilawski got them on the board in the 10th minute off an assist from midfielder Enzo Martinez.
Schilawski made it 2-0 in the 38th minute off a pass from midfielder Cesar Elizondo.
The RailHawks continued their offensive dominance in the beginning of the second half as Albadawi scored an unassisted diving header in the 48th minute of play.
The Fury had a few chances in the first half, but the RailHawks dominated possession time. All of Ottawa's pushes were shut down by RailHawk's goalkeeper Scott Goodwin.
RailHawks coach Colin Clarke commented on the win: “We put on a great performance tonight, some great passing movement, scored goals, kept a clean sheet which is just as important."
