Puerto Rico FC won its third straight game, scoring the winning goal while playing with 10 men and extending its unbeaten streak to six games in a 2-1 win over Ottawa Fury FC at TD Place on Sunday.

Ryan Williams scored his third goal in four games to give Ottawa (5-5-8, 20 points Fall; 7-8-13, 29 Combined) a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute, side-footing a crossing ball from Giuseppe Gentile. Puerto Rico (4-8-6, 20 Fall) tied it up in the 27th minute when Kyle Culbertson scored into an open net after taking a pinpoint crossing ball from Hector Ramos.

The visitors, playing a man down after Rudy Dawson was shown a straight red card in the 71st minute, stormed into the lead in the 77th minute when Sidney Rivera smashed a shot from 35 yards out past Ottawa goalkeeper Romuald Peiser, off the near post and into the net.
