The Fort Lauderdale Strikers marked their debut game at Central Broward Stadium with a 3-1 win over Ottawa Fury FC.

The Strikers (3W-2D-5L, 11 points) took an early lead when Amauri played the ball to Jose Angulo, who sent a backheel back into the path of the forward to open the scoring in the 18th minute. Ottawa, though, would strike back ten minutes later when Carl Haworth connected with Maxim Tissot’s cross to head past Strikers goalkeeper Bruno. It was Haworth’s seventh tally of the year. In the 38th minute, Haworth had a chance to add his name to the scoresheet once more, but Bruno was up to the task and stopped his penalty kick.

Fort Lauderdale grabbed the lead in the 77th minute when Amauri finished off a sensational bicycle kick. The Strikers then added another goal when Fury FC (3-0-6, 9) defender Rafael Alves turned a ball into his own net in the 83rd minute.
