Henry Captains Club to 7-3 Win in First Outing of the Season
In another small measure of revenge from last season, the Alamo City Battle sent a pretty strong message to Orange County and the BSL. "Oh, it is game on," said club vice captain Gaston Fernandez. After slotting home another late goal the playmaker joins Luis Robles as the first Battle players to record multiple points on the season. Joining Fernandez and Robles on the score sheet this week were FIVE other players (including captain Thierry Henry) making it two for two on the season with the scoring distributed up and down the line up. "It is exactly how we want to play," stated Henry. "Most of us are either first line attackers or playmakers. It is all in the design and the approach this season. We expect that any number of us can score any week." So far so good for the Battle. While both Fernandez and Robles have scored in both matches thus far, each individual score in both matches has been by a separate player. If the Battle can keep up this kind of distribution and consistency, people had better watch out.
Freedom Cup Update: In the opening match of the Freedom Cup (last week) the Battle beat Lanus (coached by former player Guillermo Barros-Schellotto) by a score of 5-2. The second match took place this weekend with Lanus beating Club Leon 1-0.
TRANSACTIONS: The Alamo City Battle have officially released Olmes Garcia (the club's 2014 retention player) and Dilly Duka to make way for the signings of Sal Zizzo and Luke Mulholland.
