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…

Rising: Richmond Kickers 0 – 2 Ottawa Fury FC

PHOTO: Richmond Kickers By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo   The Ottawa Fury have back-to-back wins for the first time since June, as the men in black and red earned a 2-0 victory on the road against the Richmond Kickers. Yes, back-to-back victories against the 16th-place Toronto FC II and the 15th-place Richmond Kickers are expected from a team with playoff ambitions, but the deed still has to get done. On a windy night in the Virginian capital, a Carl Haworth-induced own goal…

Drought: New York Red Bulls II 1 – 0 Ottawa Fury FC

PHOTOS: New York Red Bulls II By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo If the Ottawa Fury are to make the playoffs in 2018, they will have done so the hard way. On Friday night in Montclair, New Jersey, the Fury were dealt a blow to their fading playoff ambitions by way of a 1-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls II. The loss is their third in succession and the fourth match in a row without scoring. For those counting at home,…

Knife Edge: Ottawa Fury FC 0 – 0 Indy Eleven

PHOTOS: Steve Kingsman/Freestyle Photography/Ottawa Fury FC By Théo Gauthier @OwnGoalTheo   There are times in sport when two opponents are so finely poised, so evenly matched, that a thin blade is necessary to pry them apart. On Saturday afternoon at TD Place, neither Ottawa Fury FC or Indy Eleven got their hands on such an implement as they poked and prodded their way to a 0-0 draw. When it’s this close, every opportunity takes on a larger significance. Both sides had…

The Ottawa Fury picked up a vital three points against the Richmond Kickers at TD Place on Wednesday night on a perfect night for soccer in the capital. Maxime Crépeau and the Fury picked up their 11th clean sheet of the season as Carl Haworth and Tony Taylor provided the goals they needed to climb to seventh in the USL Eastern Conference standings.

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…

The win was an important one for the Fury; going into Friday’s match, the two clubs were just outside the playoff picture and within one point of each other; their respective hunger for these three points was practically on…

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: Martin Mendizabal / Instagram: martin_gonzalesm12 By Théo Gauthier @Mimglow On what can only described as a perfect night for soccer, the Ottawa Fury fell a goal down early on in the first leg of their semifinal matchup in the Canadian Championship against provincial rivals Toronto FC and fell just short of equalising on Wednesday night at TD Place. The win by Toronto FC means they will take a one-goal advantage into the second leg at BMO Field in the…

Five Guys, One Couch: A Profile of Fury FC’s Maxime Crépeau

PHOTOS: Steve Kingsman/Freestyle Photography/Ottawa Fury FC By Théo Gauthier @Mimglow One day, you’re taken to your older brother’s soccer match, and the appeal of the sport works its magic on you. Shortly thereafter, you’re playing as a defender for your hometown on Montreal’s south shore, but your team’s keeper is away on vacation. Teammates are looking around and asking: “Who’s crazy enough to play keeper?” You raise your hand, get your debut in goal…and never look back. This is the story…
