Win Streak Now at 4 - Battle Reclaim Top of the Table

Battle Continue Hot Streak With 5-3 Win Over Gold Coast

The addition of Felipe Martins has provided immediate dividends for the Alamo City Battle. In his two matches this week Martins hit for 3pts, which gave him 2 in BSL play (remember, the league continues to penalize players for playing in multiple matches rather than awarding them all of the points they score). He, along with Boyd and Johnson paced Alamo City to ensure that Kevin Hartman's clean sheet was put too good use. "It was an all around team effort this week and we've managed to bounce back exactly in the fashion we needed after our very poor spell to end the first half of the season."

Indeed it has been a nice rebound, especially when you factor in that leading scorer Thierry Henry has been largely absent from the resurgence. While he's been out healing an injury the rest of the Alamo City Battle Soccer Club has stepped up to ensure that the club has a very clear shot at achieving their goals as the second half of the season plays out. "We're 3-0 to start Major's Cup Qualifying, we've won four in a row and reclaimed the top of the table, and we've positioned ourselves to finish strong and claim a playoff spot. We just need to keep playing as we have the past few weeks." That should prove an easier task now that Thierry Henry is back in the line up. The club will look to make it a 5 spot as they take on Gold Coast this week. Even more additions were made as Jacob Peterson and Andy Gruenebaum were added and Kelyn Rowe and Miller Bolanos were dropped from the squad.

Week 15 Roster:
Thierry Henry
Kris Boyd
Eddie Johnson
Felipe Martins
Nick DeLeon
Branko Boskovic
Kamani Hill
Jacob Peterson

Andy Gruenebaum

Blas Perez
Eric Hassli
Kevin Hartman
