Barons host Fury in must-win

O.C. needs to win final three home games to make post-season

It's crunch time for the Ocean City Barons as they take on the Ottawa Fury in game three of a five game home stand to end the season. In order to secure themselves a playoff spot, they either need to win the Northeast Division or qualify via the wild card spot as the top second place team in the Eastern Conference. With the various playoff scenarios aside, it is very simple for the Men In Red: win their final three games.

They begin this quest at Carey Stadium on Sunday when the Fury (3-6-3, 12 points) come to town. This will be a difficult game for the Fury. It is the second game of their weekend road trip, having played the night before at Delaware. The Fury are currently tied for 3rd place in the New England Division. One note about the Fury entering the weekend, of the 22 goals they have allowed this season, 18 of those have been scored on the road. They are tied for second in the league in home goals against average, with their Sunday opponent, the Ocean City Barons.

The Barons enter the game with a 27-game home unbeaten streak in the regular season, and have seen their offensive production step up recently with eight goals in the first two games of their season-ending home stand. The Barons nearly had their streak snapped, but they battled back with a late equalizer by Ruben Mingo.

The game, as always, kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at Carey Stadium. Fans not able to make it to Ocean City for the game can tune in to a live broadcast by clicking on the link above.
