NASL: Armada FC Plays To Scoreless Draw With Ottawa

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – With one team in a scoring drought and the other on a shutout streak, the Jacksonville Armada FC and Ottawa Fury FC produced just about what you’d expect on Sunday afternoon: a scoreless draw.

But it wasn’t the kind of yawn-inducing, energy-sapping 0-0 game that every soccer fan dreads. Rather, this one featured shots from seemingly every angle and plenty of attacking play – just not the goal that the 7,586 fans at Community First Park at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville so desperately wanted.

It was the team’s first clean sheet since May 9th and the 39th of Gallardo’s career, a positive step ahead of next weekend’s clash with the high-powered, league-leading New York Cosmos.

With just two points from their last four NASL games, the Armada will hope to finish the NASL Spring Season on a high note in that one, which kicks off Saturday at 7 p.m. in New York.
