Third Straight Leaves Battle Fuming
When you play well enough to win, but don't, things can get a bit maddening. While the defeat to Spartans three weeks a go is a bit easy to swallow given their continued undefeated/untied run and the fact that it was simply a shootout, this weekend was especially tough to stomach. Why ? Well, because Alamo City scored enough to win the match outright ... but player selection kept that from happening. Those kind of decisions hurt, especially when the players perform. So the Battle sunk to a third straight defeat and are now looking to hold on to the footing they gained with the hot start.
- In Freedom Cup action, Lanus defeated Flamengo 1-0 to pull even on points with Alamo City. Anything but a loss in the final match up will see the Battle lift the trophy yet again. If not, Alamo City will share the cup with Lanus.
Week 8 Lineup:
Thierry Henry (C)
