Sesay's OT Goal Helps Fury Cool Heat
The Ontario Fury, Driven by Mark Christopher Chevrolet, got a pair of goals from Israel Sesay, including the game-winner in overtime, as they finished a five-game road trip with a 7-6 victory over the Harrisburg Heat at the Farm Show Arena in Harrisburg, Penn.
Sesay's two goals bookended the proceedings Saturday night, as he scored the game's first goal just 11 seconds after kickoff - the fastest goal from the start of a game in Fury history. He ended the game 2:13 into overtime as he hooked up with Jinho Kim for a give-and-go play that ended with Sesay shooting the ball past Hugo Silva to give the Fury its second win on the five-game trip.
Ontario led 4-3 at halftime, but Harrisburg took the lead midway through the fourth quarter, scoring twice in 33 seconds. But Arturo Alanis tied it with 5:19 remaining, converting a rebound off a missed free kick. Kim ended the game with one goal and three assists, while Chico Francisco Cordiero had a goal and two assists for the Fury. Juan Carlos Gonzalez scored two goals as well for Ontario, who come back to Citizens Business Bank Arena next Sunday with a record of 3-3 on the season.
Harrisburg was led by Ricardo Carvalho and Lucio Gonzaga, who both had two goals and an assist. Jose Miranda made 11 saves to earn his third victory over the year for the Fury, while Silva made 16 saves in the loss.
