Fury, Hockey and Farmers’ Market all in the Glebe This Weekend

August 16, 2018 | by glebeadmin


Wednesday’s massive win over the Richmond Kickers have catapulted Ottawa Fury FC into seventh place in the Eastern Conference, but the team will have to remain consistent over its last 10 matches to stay in playoff contention.

That all start this weekend when the Indy Eleven blow into town for a regular season dustup at TD Place Saturday afternoon. The squad hopes to build off the momentum of a 2-0 win over the Richmond Kickers earlier this week to climb up the standings even more.

The last time these two clubs met, the Ottawa Fury managed to sneak away with a 1-0 win in early July. A win this weekend could push the Fury into fifth place.
