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

PHOTOS: Steve Kingsman/Freestyle Photography/Ottawa Fury FC By Théo Gauthier @Mimglow The Ottawa Fury are in a playoff position and appear to only be picking up steam. However, despite yet another strong performance by the men in black and red on Saturday night at TD Place, the narrative could have been a much different one.
