After a slow start to Sunday’s match, goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh earned his keep as Ottawa Fury recorded 15 total shots, 7 of which came late in the second half. 

Ranjitsingh added to his 35 total saves on the year – some of which held Fury FC from taking three points from the boys in purple.

“I thought he made a couple of important saves for us,” said coach James O’Conor on his starting keeper. “I think there was one definitely that I thought was a big save.”

The Mercer University graduate added another save when Ottawa’s Sito Seoane nearly tied the match with a left-footed strike outside the box, but Ranjitsingh’s diving stop held the hosts in check.

Ranjitsingh, who left the season opener against Saint Louis FC with a hip flexor injury, has since come on to help his club record 7 of its 11 clean sheets.

“Again, with the goalkeepers that we have, we have tremendous belief in Greg and Tim (Dobrowolski) and Micah (Bledsoe) that have taken on underneath him,” added coach O’Connor. “So for us, it’s an area that we feel very fortunate to have such good goalkeepers and again, Greg is someone that we have tremendous belief in.”
