Shutout Brings Points Record

Magical Season Continues in 6-0 Win Over Pennsylvania

Obafemi Martins capped off another record breaking week for the Alamo City Battle as the club took down Stoners FC by a 6-0 score line.  The match was book ended by the two superstars as Henry got on the board early before Martins slammed the door shut.  The win gives Alamo City the single season points record and puts them in prime position to not only add too that record tally, but also capture the most wins in a BSL season as there are still two matches left to play.  The Battle will go on the road to face Alliance this week and then close out the regular season at home against Orange County where the Battle will aim to avenge their only loss of the season to date.

It has been a very fluid season for Alamo City in terms of the roster.  While the core of the club has remained intact (Henry, Barnes, Cooper, Nielsen, Barklage), there have been many new faces added as well as a pretty big risk taken.  One of the biggest moves was the trade that brought Will Johnson to the club.  Add that to the fantastic rewards reaped from taking chances on Olmes Garcia and Diego Fagundez, and the club has captured lightning in a bottle more than a few times.  The big news of course, was the signing of Obafemi Martins.  The Battle showed though, that they're dead set on being the top team in the league as they took a chance and claimed the BSL rights to Diego Forlan (despite uncertainty over his signing being completed).  It remains to be seen if the Battle were right in their assessment of Mauro Diaz and Bradley Wright Phillips.
