OTTAWA FURY FC 1, JACKSONVILLE ARMADA FC 0
OTTAWA, Ontario A late goal by Marcel De Jong gave the Ottawa Fury FC a 1-0 win over the Jacksonville Armada on Sunday afternoon at TD Place Stadium.

Ottawa improves to 2-3-2, 8 pts, while Jacksonville is now 1-5-1, 4 pts in the NASL Spring season.

The majority of the match was a stalemate between the sides until the 88th minute when a De Jong kick from near the endline deflected off a diving Miguel Gallardo and into the goal.

Armada forward Charles Eloundou had a match-high seven shots, but only two went on goal, with the other attempts proving to be too strong and sailing over the goal or being blocked. Despite allowing the late goal, Gallardo made four saves, including a pair of second half clutch dives that kept Jacksonville in it.
