WEEK 5 Win Would Put Alamo City in Early Driver's Seat for League and Founder's Cup
Being able to kill two birds with one stone is always a welcome thing. This weekend the Battle aim to do just that. In a match up that pits the two early season leaders against one another, both Gateway and Alamo City will be looking to take an early advantage in both the League and Founder's Cup standing.
"Huge. No other word to describe it. It's a huge match up. You want name value ? After reading over our roster you get to Gateway and you see Donovan, Beckham, and Cooper. There's a reason they've started white hot. It's not just these first four games this year. They've been building momentum for a while now. Very dangerous .... this is going to get ugly."
It may do just that, but not out of bad blood. The competition between these two clubs is fierce and both owners know that this is the type of match that can set you up for the rest of the season ... both good and bad.
