Canadian international Marcel de Jong scored from an acute angle deep in the penalty area in the 88th minute as Ottawa Fury FC snatched a late 1-0 victory against visiting Jacksonville Armada FC on Sunday afternoon.

Jacksonville (1W-1D-5L, 4 points) had perhaps the best chance of the first half, coming in the 40th minute when Charles Eloundou cracked a shot from just outside the penalty area that forced Fury FC goalkeeper Romuald Peiser to parry clear.

In the 63rd minute, Ottawa’s Israeli striker Idan Vered took a lead pass from Jonny Steele and broke into the penalty area. From the center of the penalty area he guided a left-footed shot toward the near post before Armada FC goalkeeper Miguel Gallardo stretched out to push the ball over the end line for a corner kick.

Gallardo came up big again nine minutes later when a crossing pass from the left by Steele setup Dennis Chin’s flying, right-footed volley that bounced in front of the Jacksonville 'keeper and was smothered.

Ottawa (2-2-3, 8), which had last week off, now has a nine-game NASL home unbeaten streak. Jacksonville has lost four straight and been outscored, 5-0.
