Depth Saves Point for Battle

Marcelo Sarvas Saves the Day

During First Kick it was the "name" brand that took center stage for the Alamo City Battle Soccer Club. "The big guns took care of business for us," stated Alamo city management in regards to the first match of the year. "But this week, we showed what a club has to do in order to win in this league. You've got to play to the final whistle, and you've got to have players capable of producing slotted in every position in your lineup. Marcelo came in very late into the game and stole a point for us. That's how you separate yourself in this league."

Fresh of the warnings earlier in the week that facing an expansion club presented a very unique set of challenges, the ACSC brass was delighted to see their club pull something from an otherwise weak performance overall. Blas Perez netted his first goal of the season, as did Jaime Castrillon. No one else even sniffed the scoreboard until Sarvas put in a beautiful header from the center of the box. The point lands Alamo City in a four way tie for second place after the first two weeks of the season.
