Three straight draws and five straight games with a goal for Steevan Dos Santos. Last Saturday’s 1-1 result in Rochester marked a third straight draw for Fury FC while Dos Santos scored in a fifth consecutive game to tie Tom Heinemann’s regular season scoring mark with his eighth goal of the season. Ottawa is getting ready for another big challenge this Saturday as the club visits the Charlotte Independence.
