Atlético Ottawa presented a full roster for the first time since its season opener in front of 3,555 soccer fans at TD Place on Saturday, May 7.
Not the result the team wanted after returning to TD Place on Saturday, May 7 in front of 3,555 adoring fans for an afternoon of Canadian Premier League (CPL) soccer action.
It was the first time since Atlético Ottawa’s season opener that the team fielded a full roster, but on that day, the team fell 1-0 in heartbreaking fashion to Pacific FC.
Through 90 minutes of play, Ottawa managed 23 shots, 17 of them from inside the box and 11 of them on target, but could not get past Pacific FC goalkeeper Callum Irving.
Atletico Ottawa captain Drew Beckie returned from a three-game suspension, while forward Carl Haworth played his first game of the season. Haworth was battling a nagging injury that kept him off the field.
Ottawa head coach Carlos Gonzalez will miss the team’s upcoming CPL games as he is serving a suspension after being ejected by the referee during yesterday’s game.
