OTTAWA, ON – The Ottawa Fury Women (8-0-1) kept their undefeated season with a 2-0 victory over the Hamilton Avalanche (2-5-1) on goals from Anna Caniglia and Sari Raber.
After a scoreless first half that saw the Fury stymied with several chances on goal they looked to be suffering the same fate until Sari Raber tallied her fourth of the season in the 74th minute finding a lose ball in a goal-mouth scramble after two great saves from Avalanche keeper Amy Holt.
The goal put the Avalanche back on their heels as the Fury pressed for a second goal which came in the 85th minute from defender Anna Caniglia who headed home the Michelle Evans cross for her second of the season.
Emma Kete made her Fury debut coming on in the final five minutes for her first touches in Fury colours.
Kete joins the Fury from the New Zealand National Team, becoming the fourth Kiwi to join the Fury this year. Yewande Balogun collected the shutout for the Fury.
Hamilton plays at home on Monday (July 6) against Toronto, with a 7pm start. On Wednesday (July 8), Buffalo visits Hamilton for a rematch at 7pm. Both games are at Brian Timmins Field.
