Two teams aiming to get back on the winning track when the Carolina RailHawks visit Ottawa Fury FC at TD Place.  Carolina, who’s two points from the final spot to The Championship, is coming off a 2-0 loss to visiting Atlanta Silverbacks last week, while Ottawa was also beaten by the similar score at home, 2-0, against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.  This is the third encounter this year between the two with each club winning one match apiece.  The last meeting took place on July 26 at WakeMed Soccer Park where forward Zack Schilawski scored twice and midfielder Nazmi Albadawi added another for the host RailHawks in the 3-0 victory.

Coaches quotes:

“We will need to be mentally and physically engaged if we want to beat Carolina. It’s another test of the team’s character and I believe our answer will be positive. Carolina won in its last away game and we know the type of opponent they could be. I really believe our group of guys will give back to the fans that have come to TD Place and have been fantastic.” – Fury FC coach Marc Dos Santos

“At this point in the season we should see every game as if we were playing The Championship match. Last time that we went to Ottawa we didn’t get a good result, but we know we can do better and we are going for the three points.” – RailHawks coach Colin Clarke

Ottawa Fury FC 2 Carolina RailHawks 2

Ottawa Fury FC holds a 1-0 lead over the Carolina RailHawks after 45 minutes of play at TD Place in Ottawa, Ontario.


The Carolina RailHawks (3W-1T-6L, 10pts) were moments away from leaving Ottawa victorious on Sunday afternoon, but were forced to settle for a draw after a controversial stoppage time goal by Ottawa Fury FC (1W-3T-5L, 6pts).

Even-though the RailHawks dominated possession and created multiple opportunities in the first half, it was Ottawa who open the score in the 24th minute of play with a goal by former RailHawks forward Tom Heinemann. 

Despite being one goal down, the RailHawks came out strong in the second half. 

In the 61st minute of play, RailHawks midfielder Danny Barrera would go on to score his first goal of the season. After a series of deflections in the box Barrera found the ball outside of the area and with soft chip he send the ball to the back of the net to tie the game 1-1. 

Three minutes later RailHawks Midfielder Leo Osaki's took a shot which deflected off an Ottawa player in the box and landed at Tiyi Shipalanes feet. After dribbling towards the goal Shipalane blasted a shot past Ottawa's goalkeeper Romuland Peiser to give the RailHawks a temporary 2-1 lead.

In the final moments of stoppage time, Ottawa's forward Oliver scored a controversial stoppage time goal in the 95th minute to tie the match and to send the RailHawks home with only one point.
