Richmond v. Charleston 5-24 (R)

Been busy outside of soccer and really don't have time for a in depth preview of the match before Tuesday nights match up between the Charleston Battery and Richmond Kickers (Blackbaud Stadium, 7:30pm EST, watch live and free and ) but here are a few bullet points worth mentioning.

  • Five matches without a goal -  Battery have got to turn it around quick!  With nine games done and dusted, a third of the season is over.
  • Injures and suspensions - Dykstra, Dugoni, Kelly, Zaher, and Coleman didn't make the trip to Wilmington.  Peverley might be out, heard two other players had to be looked at after the match in Wilmington as well.  Not sure who is going to be healthy to take the field Tuesday night.
  • Wilson suspension - Johnny got a straight red on Saturday.  He'll miss the match against Richmond as well.
On the Positive note
  • Two for Tuesday!  Two tickets for $10 and $2 drafts all night long.  
  • Diego Walsh had a pretty good match and will be able to help cover.
Richmond are still riding high and are still undefeated after 7 matches with 19 points.  The Battery are fifth in the division with 11 points.

No official Regiment tailgate for this one but I'm sure their will be a few at the usual spot with a pre-match beverage or two before heading into the stadium.
