Second Half Opens With Win

Battle Take Charge as Second Half of Season Starts

4-1 was the score line against the KC Quest this past weekend as the Alamo City Battle opened the second half of the BSL season with a win. No Henry yet again but it was no problem as the GAM himself, Eddie Johnson, led the charge for the Battle. This means that the Battle have started Major's Cup Qualifying with the maximum 6 points and are looking to make a serious run in the 2nd half of the season after opening the campaign on a tear. The additions of Branko Boskovic and Felipe Martins are looking to be master strokes as both men contributed to the score sheet again this week (the Gunners must be fuming about Branko). Kevin Hartman wasn't able to overcome shoddy defending in front of him but showed his ability by getting 5 saves to add to the total. All in all the club is showing its depth right now and that could be the key for the 2nd half of the season.

The club will have to go at least one more match without talisman Thierry Henry. The striker will be out this week again as they club makes sure he's rested and ready when he does hit the field. It will be a quick turnaround for the club as they take on Alliance FC who is fresh off a good win against Gold Coast. The club needs to keep the momentum going and the pressure on the other BSL clubs.
