Fury FC quick notes: Our starting midfield, one of the best in the NASL, was outpaced and outmuscled by the younger RFC midfielders, and we were under severe pressure for all of 1st half, especially down our right flank. RFC played many one-twos on that flank, and Fresenga, Jarun, Ryan and Donatelli failed to combine together to effectively shut down their passing moves.

In the 2nd half, the introduction of Davies and Paterson, particularly, shifted the momentum to Ottawa, with good passing and movement down our right flank and we started to open up some chances. Soria looked very good at LCB and is a player that deserves more playing time, with his calm, assured play throughout the spring season. The introduction of 17 year old F Jacob Schroeter was a great boon for the OFFC Academy and for elite footballer youths in Ottawa in general.
