Post Season: Ottawa Fury FC 0 – 0 Bethlehem Steel FC

PHOTOS: Steve Kingsman/Freestyle Photography/Ottawa Fury FC By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo That sound you heard over and over again on Sunday afternoon at TD Place—soccer ball thumping against plastic piping—may have been the death throes of the Ottawa Fury’s 2018 playoff hopes. The Fury’s playoff hopes are still alive, but the goal the club set for itself in the preseason to attend the postseason dance in 2018 was made more difficult as the Fury drew the penultimate match of the season 0-0…

Pulsating: Toronto FC II 3 – 4 Ottawa Fury FC

PHOTO: Toronto FC II By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo On Thursday night in Toronto, the Ottawa Fury took a 2-0 lead into halftime with goals from Tony Taylor and Cristian Portilla which, in any other Fury match of 2018, would have been game over. The Fury secured their halftime lead by playing the same way they have all summer: tight defence, solid goalkeeping, conceding possession and taking shots at the opposition on the break. Head Coach Nikola Popovic’s hand was forced into…

Music City Lament: Nashville SC 2 – 0 Ottawa Fury

Music City Lament: Nashville SC 2 – 0 Ottawa Fury

Nashville has historically been the home of heartfelt laments, so the Ottawa Fury won’t have had to look hard for an appropriate soundtrack for their journey home after a 2-0 loss on Friday night. Merle Haggard’s “Sing Me Back Home” might be a good selection, seeing as this mini road trip has failed to deliver the bounty of points the Fury set out to collect after the final game of their homestand. Against Atlanta United II on Tuesday, in the…

Great Scott! Atlanta United II 1 – 1 Ottawa Fury FC

PHOTOS: Atlanta United 2 / USL By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo In W.P. Kinsella’s 1986 novel The Iowa Baseball Confederacy, the author explores what would happen if a baseball game went to extra innings and never ended, bending time and space to conjure up a 2000-inning game between the 1908 Chicago Cubs and a local Iowa team. Shades of that idea were on display tonight in Atlanta as the Ottawa Fury and Atlanta United II resumed a match which was suspended…

Dog Days: Ottawa Fury FC 0 – 3 Louisville City FC

PHOTO: Matt Zambonin / Freestyle Photography By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo The summer grind was bound to catch up to the Ottawa Fury, and it appeared to have done so on a humid Saturday afternoon at TD Place as they were defeated 3-0 by Louisville City FC. Early on, the defending USL Cup champions looked spry and active compared to their hosts and pressed their advantage in the energy department to force some mistakes from the Fury’s back line. It was…

PHOTOS: Steve Kingsman/Freestyle Photography/Ottawa Fury FC By Théo Gauthier @Mimglow Romuald Peiser may be the Fury’s all-time leader in clean sheets (23), but the familiar confines of TD Place weren’t enough to keep his old team off the scoresheet as the Ottawa club came roaring back after going down a goal for a 2-1 win over Penn FC. The match, once again played in the oppressive heat and humidity that is typical of Ottawa afternoons in July, was the first come-from-behind…
