Ottawa Fury FC scored two goals in the game’s final six minutes to defeat Minnesota United, 3-2, at NSC Stadium on Saturday night.

Minnesota (5W-5D-5L, 20 points Fall; 10-6-9, 36 Combined) took a 1-0 lead a half-hour into the game. Christian Ramirez, the league’s leading goalscorer, turned provider when his long pass was chested down by Jamie Watson at the top of the Ottawa (4-5-6, 17 Fall; 6-8-11, 26 Combined) penalty area. Watson went around goalkeeper Romuald Peiser and his shot eluded two Fury FC defenders before rolling into the goal.

Ottawa knotted the score in the 35th minute when Giuseppe Gentile’s shot from 25 yards out skipped past Loons goalkeeper Sammy Ndjock. Two minutes before halftime, Christian Ramirez drew a foul in the penalty area, then converted the spot kick for his 15th goal of the year and a 2-1 lead.

Ottawa refused to yield. Ryan Williams headed in a cross from Eddie Edward in the 84th minute and then Danny Mwanga gave Fury FC its first lead of the night when he scored off a cross from Jamar Dixon in the 88th minute.
