The Classic

Week 18 Brings the Second Leg of the BSL Classic to San Antonio

Must win.  Losing is not an option.  Nothing else matters.

Quite a bit can be said about the 2013 season in regards to the Alamo City Battle.  As it stands it is primed to be the best season in club history regardless of the remaining outcomes.  The club is chasing all sorts of records and every piece of hardware they can possibly win in a given season. Trying to close out the job starts this weekend, at home.  With 5 weeks left in the BSL Regular Season the Battle are chasing  The Honors Trophy, The Founder's Cup, The BSL Classic, and several league records.  The league records ?  Many of them reside with Capital District (most league wins, most points in a season, most total league wins, and most total sanctioned cups).

"It always boils down to this.  Everything you ever play for has to be taken.  In this long running rivalry, we've only taken things one time ... ever."

And so, the quest for BSL history truly begins with the biggest obstacle that the Alamo City Soccer Club has ever faced.  Capital District comes to San Antonio with every intention and every belief that they can sabotage the best season the Battle have ever had.  "They can turn it sour very quickly.  We've accomplished the first goal, we're in the playoffs.  That's not enough though.  The club we are isn't properly represented by the hardware on display at Stone Oak Park.  That must change."
