Ottawa Fury FC faced Minnesota United for a second straight weekend and Ottawa picked up back-to-back wins. The club also scored three goals in each contest, this time at TD Place in a 3-1 win on Saturday night. Ottawa is now unbeaten in seven games.

Behind in the second half, much like last week’s game, Ottawa (5W-5D-6L, 20 points Fall; 7-8-11, 29 Combined) overturned a deficit. Giuseppe Gentile equalized for Ottawa in the 57th minute after a pass from Maxim Tissot. He scored for the second straight time against Minnesota United. Fury FC grabbed the lead when Carl Haworth bombed down the right flank and his cross took a deflection off a Loons defender before Ryan Williams scored, also his second goal against Minnesota in back-to-back games, in the 82nd minute. Haworth added a second assist four minutes later as Lance Rozeboom scored the side’s third goal of the contest.

Jamie Watson gave Minnesota (5-5-6, 20 Fall; 10-6-10, 36 Combined) the lead in the 20th minute when Ben Speas chipped the ball forward before Christian Ramirez squared the ball towards Watson, who put in his own rebound for the tally. 

With the victory, Ottawa jumped in front of the Loons in the Fall Season and moved into fifth place – on goal differential (plus-two to plus-one). In the Combined Standings, Minnesota’s grip on fourth place – and a postseason berth – is slipping. The side is only one point better than the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
