Depleted Victory find the net but suffer loss to Fury in Canada

A depleted Boston Victory broke a four-game scoring drought through Andrew Sousa’s second half goal but went down to a 4-1 defeat to the Ottawa Fury in Canada.

The improved performance after last week’s heavy loss to CFC Azul will give Boston the belief they can return to winning ways next Saturday, June 9, at home to Vermont Voltage at Quincy’s Veterans Memorial Stadium, kickoff 7pm.


Missing several starters including their entire Brazilian contingent and Cape Verdean international striker Zico Veiga, the Victory faced an uphill task in their sixth game of the 2012 Premier Development League season.  New signings Matthew Keys and Russell Oost-Lievense both made their debuts.

Sergio Taborda’s team were chasing the game after only five minutes having fallen behind to a Miguel Jimenez goal and the hosts made it 2-0 before halftime when Carlo Basso headed home a free kick.

A Niall Crick tap only a minute after the break as Boston came out flat for the second half effectively ended the contest but former New England Revolution midfielder Sousa breathed life into the Victory.  His goal after 54 minutes ended a streak of 414 minutes without the Victory hitting the back of the net.

Another tap in, this time for William Beaugue as the ball came down off cross bar, rounded off the win for Ottawa whose Algonquin College Soccer Complex is a home fortress and has earned them a 23-2-8 record against all visitors.

Team: Bar, Hamilton, DeMelo, Sidibe, Campbell, Keys, Sousa, Resendes, Fagundes, Kaya, Latif
