Lone Goal Downs Dutch Lions

Charleston hosted a struggling league expansion side as Dayton travelled to face the Battery Friday night.  Despite the humble scoreline, our team has shown some real offensive improvement and cooperation up front.  The Battery pressed the attack in the first half and saw a number of good chances narrowly denied.  The Battery offense has really shown some promise in the past weeks and it seems the short break did the team a lot of good.  It took some time before the goal came but it was worth the wait.  Favley fed Evan Taylor with precision passing who delivered the ball for Levi Coleman with time and space to strike the ball.  His effort was buried in an open net and the Dutch Lions never looked like mounting a comeback.

The win leaves Charleston in fourth place in their division, seven points off pace from leaders Orlando City.  The Battery face Orlando City tomorrow at the 'Baud in the second round of the US Open Cup.  The Lions may be a handful for us, but if we remain consistent and keep our current form, and we have some help from the home field advantage (it will be our last in the cup) we can produce the right result.  Up the Battery!
