7-3 Win Propels Battle to Fourth Straight Victory to Start 2014
The final score certainly isn't flattering to Gold Coast, but it doesn't tell the true story of the game. In what was a much more contested fixture than the final score indicates, Alamo City continued their early season assault on the table. The pivotal point in the match came when Vicente Sanchez and Sal Zizzo went to work down in Colorado. Both men put a brace together (with Zizzo finding Battle teammate Benny Feilhaber on one of his assists) to help propel Alamo City past Gold Coast. On the heels of the double double, the engine that is Mauro Diaz continued to purr right along with another goal. Also pitching in was Obafemi Martins with another assist. The hot start continues in San Antonio and the stage is set for the first true test of the season next week as the Battle will play the other undefeated squad as they take on Spartans.
Freedom Cup update: The Battle hosted partner side Club Leon and walked away with a 7-2 victory to stay atop the Freedom Cup standings.
