Kudos to Nicki Paterson and Andrew Dykstra for being chosen for the USL Pro team of the week. Nicki's header and great play and Dykstra's vital saves and keeping a clean sheet were the key to their selection. John Wilson and Sallieu Bundu were also given honorable mentions.

The Battery take on Antigua Barracuda this Friday night for the first time in the Battery's history. The Barracuda's are virtually the Antigua National team, the same ones that will take on the US Men's National Team June 8 in Tampa, Florida in World Cup Qualifying.
Antigua will play the Wilmington Hammerheads on Wednesday before traveling to Charleston to take on the Battery. Following the Battery match, Antigua will travel to Trinidad to compete in the qualifing rounds of the CONCACAF Champions League. It will be interesting to see how their squad approaches the travel and the compact schedule of matches.
