Alhassane Keita scored the tying and winning goals as the Fury rallied from a 1-0 deficit to beat the Fury.

“I’m feeling happy for the whole club," said Lowry, who replaced Tony Meola. "It’s been a long time coming. These players have worked hard all season, and today I think they got the rewards they haven’t been getting. With the transition we’ve had, it’s tough on the guys. I’m proud of the way they responded. They know they’re building toward something.”

The win was just the second in nine games in the fall season for the Armada, who climbed out of the basement. The victory was just the third in 19 games this season.
