[NASL: Week 2] The Fort Lauderdale Strikers, seventh and fifth in the NASL's two half-seasons, will look to build on their opening 2-0 win over Ottawa when they travel to Carolina Saturday night (live on ESPN3 at 7:30 p.m. ET).
 
The RailHawks, who opened with a 1-1 tie at Indy Eleven, will put their 16-game unbeaten streak (combined NASL and U.S. Open Cup matches) on the line in their home opener at WakeMed Soccer Park.
 
"First of all, this will be a real challenge for us," Strikers coach Guenter Kronsteiner said. "Carolina hasn't lost a game at home in a long time. To have such a long streak is amazing; they have all my respect. But we're in good shape and we keep getting better and better. This game will be a good measure of where we are at this point."
 
-- Expansion Ottawa Fury FC hosts its first match, taking on Minnesota United FC at Carleton University's Keith Harris Stadium, its temporary home until its moves into TD Place Stadium in the summer.
 
"Minnesota is one of the three favorites to win the league," said Fury FC coach Marc Dos Santos. "We know very well our opponent and will make sure we are ready when they come visit us. My group of players are very motivated and focused to make the life of teams very difficult in Ottawa. We want to honor our fans in our first-ever home game."
