Carolina RailHawks return home to welcome Ottawa Fury FC at WakeMed Soccer Park as both sides will be playing their second game in less than a week. Carolina is coming a off 2-0 loss against host San Antonio Scorpions on Wednesday, while Ottawa, who were beaten 1-0 by Scottish side Rangers FC in midweek international friendly action, dropped a 1-0 decision at home last Sunday against New York Cosmos. This is the first meeting between the two clubs at the Triangle, however both sides faced off this past Spring north of the border.  A pair of tallies from forward Oliver led the Fury FC to a 4-0 victory over the visiting RailHawks at Carleton University’s Keith Harris Stadium for the Canadian team’s first NASL win.

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."
