Following their impressive outing in the Canadian Championship first-leg tie against Toronto Football Club last week Wednesday, the Fury “rode a wave” of morale booster to overcome the Richmond Kickers. In an encounter that saw a total of 8 goals. It was a twenty-one minutes period that put the match apparently out-of-sight for the Ottawa Fury FC, who notched in three “unanswered” goals in the final twenty-one minutes of the encounter leaving the Richmond Kickers searching for a way out.

The Red Bulls 2 impressively snapped a three match losing streaks. A match winner from forward Derrick Etienne saw RBNY II squeaks out Charleston, who face off last weekend game leading the East. It was a stunning result given the both clubs current form but the Charleston Battery weren't able to dealt with the RBNY II on set-pieces. Here's a complete roundup of some last weekend's USL results and how they went down.

FC Cincinnati 1–0 Toronto FC 2

Undoubtedly, the recent acquisition of Danish forward Danni Konig is apparently starting to pay off for the Football Club of Cincinnati. Danni Konig scored his third-goal through two matches, and steered FC Cincinnati to a 1-0 triumph over Toronto FC 2 last weekend. It was midfielder Tyler Polak's cross that found Danni Konig, who headed home the winner for the hosts.

Despite their narrow loss, Toronto FC II apparently created several clear chances, including forcing in a goal-line defensive clearance and hitting the crossbar.

Ottawa Fury 5–3 Richmond Kickers

The Fury won their second consecutive game in a come from behind win over a potent Kickers team. Richmond Kickers looked-well on its victory after taking the lead in the fifty-ninth minute. The Fury notched three “unanswered” goals in the final twenty-one minutes to earn their second victory at home.

Ottawa Fury FC had not won “back to back” matches yet this year. Forward Sito Seaone netted his third-goal through two matches, and the Fury is now gripping on the top-half of the Eastern Conference standings.

New York Red Bulls II 2–1 Charleston Battery

Red Bulls 2 seemed “destined” to lose their fourth consecutive game after giving up a free-kick goal from Battery's Justin Portillo minutes before the break.

RBNY II fought back fervently in the second-half with two set piece goals to snap Charleston Battery seven match unbeaten streaks. The Red Bulls II well-dominated midfield restrained Charleston Battery to just 41% ball possession and three-shots on target. Red Bulls II forward Junior Flemmings notched his fourth-goal of the season, while Derrick Etienne's seventy-fifth minute match winner was his first goal of the year.

Tampa Bay Rowdies 1–1 Saint Louis

Forward Neill Collins eighty-seventh minute equalizer canceled-out José Angulo's game opener for the hosts to ultimately settle for a 1-1 stalemate with visiting Saint Louis. The Tampa Bay Rowdies showed strong guts in their come-from-behind stalemate, particularly coming-off from its last mid-week game. Obviously, finishing in front of goal will need to be an utmost “priority” for the Tampa Bay Rowdies offensively, as they dominated the encounter and created several good chances, but weren't able to finish up properly.
