Battle Continue Dominance
"It just goes that way against some teams," state Alamo City management after their 4-1 victory over Union. "For some odd reason certain teams and players have your number. We just happen to have Union's. It isn't like we know the drill though, CD whips us every time we take the field."
The story was the same this weekend for the Battle as they won their third in a row to start the season in a second straight 4-1 match.
It was tense early on and the momentum looked as though it might go the way of Union on the strength of a beautiful assist from Steve Zakuani. Sunday the tide turned late in the Texas Derby as Michel assisted on Kenny Cooper's match winning goal. "It was a great feeling when that played out, because we couldn't shake the ugly feeling after Henry's unbelievable match with 10 shots, 5 shots on goal, but amazingly no goals. He even had a few assists that weren't due to the bad luck finding Fabian Espindola as well." Despite it all, the Battle found a way to pull out the victory and continue their dominance of Union SC.
