Ottawa unleashes its fury on Indy Eleven
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Ottawa Fury FC made it a clean sweep of its “Class of 2014” brethren Indy Eleven in their 2015 series Saturday, using a pair of goals by Andrew Wiedeman early in the second half – including the game-winner in the 54th minute – to post a 4-1 win in front of 9,866 fans at IUPUI’s Carroll Stadium.
After its three-game, eight-day stretch that was the busiest of the 2015 regular season to date, Indy Eleven will get a well-earned weekend off, next returning to action on Wednesday, August 19, back at Carroll Stadium against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
“We’ll take advantage of the time we have to get a little bit of rest from both the physical and the mental side and then we’ll ramp it back up and get ourselves back in gear. We definitely faded over the course of this week. Between the travel, the lack of training and guys in and out, it’s going to happen. I like to think that I could look at every guy and they would say that they could have given more.” – INTERIM HEAD COACH TIM REGAN
With its third win in as many meetings over Indy Eleven in 2015, the Fall Season leader Ottawa pushed its unbeaten streak to 12 games and reclaimed the top spot in the NASL’s overall standings ahead of New York. Meanwhile, Indy Eleven saw its winless streak reach match a season-high four games after a fruitless three-day, eight-game stretch.
