Hartford Athletic ended the night on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Ottawa Fury FC at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field.
Hartford had an energetic offensive start with some solid chances to score coming from Sebastian Dalgaard, Harry Swartz and Mads Jorgensen. Logan Gdula also hustled in the back line to make a great save on the defensive end.
Ottawa was able to put one on the board when Mour Samb was able to rebound off of a header in the box in the 22nd minute.
Building off of the second half momentum, Hartford answers in the 47th minute with an incredible strike from Sebastian Dalgaard across the box to tie up the game. A great defensive effort from Hartford kept Ottawa from scoring for the remainder of the game.
