Ottawa Fury FC news and notes

  • Current record: 1-2-0, 3pts

  • Ottawa earned its first victory in the USL last Saturday when Steevan Dos Santos’ first goal for the club earned a 1-0 win on the road against the Richmond Kickers.

  • Dos Santos’ strike on the volley from the halfway line was one of the top finishes of the season so far in the USL, and lifted Fury FC to victory late on.

  • Saturday’s game will mark Fury FC’s first home opener in the USL, but the club had remarkable success in the Premier Development League prior to moving into the pro ranks, winning its division four times in five seasons at the conclusion of its run.

  • The contest with Toronto FC II will be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs in the professional ranks, with Ottawa having yet to meet Toronto’s MLS squad in the Voyageurs Cup.

Toronto FC II news and notes

  • Current record: 1-2-1, 4pts

  • Toronto is coming off a 0-0 draw with the Rochester Rhinos in its last outing that saw Angelo Cavalluzzo record his first shutout of the season.

  • TFC II is winless in its last three outings after having earned a 1-0 win against Phoenix Rising FC in the club’s opening game of the season.

  • Toronto announced this week it had signed former Montreal defender Brandon Onkony to a USL deal after the young defender made a positive impression in in the first four games of TFC II’s season.

  • Ayo Akinola, who scored two goals in 10 games for TFC II last season, was named in the U.S. U17 squad for the CONCACAF U17 Championship in Panama which kicks off on Friday.
