You did it again Fury Fans! Jonathan Barden has earned the USL Fans’ Choice Goal of the Week for Week 24 of the 2017 season, as his outstanding individual effort against Saint Louis FC last Sunday afternoon at TD Place took top spot in the weekly online poll.
Barden had yet to find the net this season for Ottawa, but made sure his first goal of the season was a memorable one. Picking up possession on the right wing, the English midfielder wove past two defenders to get into the penalty area, and then fired home a precise low finish at the near post to open the scoring in a 2-2 draw against Saint Louis.
Barden’s goal earned 44 percent of the poll conducted online at USLSoccer.com that concluded on Thursday morning, edging out another outstanding strike from the same game by Saint Louis’ Seth Rudolph.
Barden and Fury FC return to action Saturday evening in Rochester as the hunt for the USL playoffs continues.
