Fury lost 3-0 this morning against Rochester
Where was that played? Friday at 9 am is a pretty odd time, even for a preseason match.
It's interesting hearing about the Rochester Rhinos again. They used to be a pretty big club in the USL A-League back in the day when they played against the Impact and Lynx. There used to be rumblings about them joining MLS, and then suddenly they fell off the face of the earth (i.e. dropped to the 3rd division, same difference?).
Well they are now a 2nd division team.
This is amazing. Opens up a massive number of semi-pro Canadian teams to the possibility of one day making it to CONCACAF (however remote that may be).
That's the unique beauty of soccer right there. You can earn your way right to the top!
Fury FC sign 2016 USL Goal of the Year Award Winner Jimmy-Shammar Sanon
Seems like an exciting local (montreal) player. I also asked to confirm if it was a loan thing with the Impact but they confirmed it was a proper signature.
Final Fury pre-season game today
Final score Ottawa Fury 2 Montreal Impact 0
Great news: same as last year, every Fury game (home and away) will be on TV (Rogers channel 22), online stream (Fury FC website, USL website), and radio (TSN 1200).
Also, USL beats out NASL in terms of accessibility: you can watch just about every game live stream on the league youtube channel.
Checked out the St. Louis vs. Louisville game on Saturday to check out the competition.
Fury at St Louis kickoff 8:30pm and will be broadcast on the USL’s Youtube channel, Rogers TV or TSN 1200.
Ottawa just tied it up at about 86 mins
Erg . St Louis just scored to take the lead again 3-2.
Team looks as lost defensively as the Sens right now.
Completely brutal coverage. Only player that impressed me was Campbell; nobody else was able to actually move the ball up the field on their own it seemed.
Game is in Tampa tonight.
Despite the loss, the team looked night and day better than game 1. Rozeboom and Irving in particular looked much calmer and more in control, dictating play and making key interjections to hold possession/prevent chances. Campbell is far and away our best player over the two matches and really the only guy on the field I trust to move the ball on his own: very effective handling and passing. Williams looked good coming on. Edwards and Obasi looked pretty average and got worse over the course of the game.
Missing Haworth up top right now - it'll be big when we can get him back in the lineup.
Haworth could be out for some time
Fury win their first game of the season 1-0 at Richmond with a goal from Dos Santos with a shot from the halfway line.

Ottawa Fury FC acquires Michael Salazar on loan from Montreal Impact
New signing Michael Salazar is not eleigible to play wednesday against Edmonton in the Canadian Championship but will be for saturdays game against Tampa.
Fury 1 Edmonton 0, 2nd game next wednesday in Edmonton.
If Fury draw or win, or lose 2-1, 3-2 etc. then they will qualify to play Toronto FC in the semi final, while Montreal and Vancouver will play in the other semi final
That would be fun. Hope they can hold it together in Edmonton this year.
Ottawa played to a scoreless draw against Tampa this afternoon. Those in attendance (3840) deserve a medal, or a t-shirt, or something - only half kidding, they are hardcore so kudos to them. The Fury on a five game unbeaten streak.
In other news, the CPL is officially a reality. Another league switch in the offing?
I don't think you will see them switch anytime soon maybe 2-3 years from now.
Fury ahead 2-1 (3-1 on aggregate) against Edmonton tonight to see who meets Toronto in the next round of the Canadian Championship. Sounded like Edmonton's goal was a howler by the keeper, but they are sitting in a good position given the away-goals rule (they have two, Edmonton has none).
Ottawa Fury 3 Edmonton 2 final, win 4-2 aggregate, will now play Toronto FC inthe semi final, first game in Ottawa wednesday May 23, 2nd game in Toronto a week later. There should be at least 10,00 for this game.
