I've been out of town for a much needed mini-vacation, but now I'm back to catch up with the local soccer action. Again, a special thanks goes to Doug and Darrell who provided terrific match reviews of the AHSAA playoffs last weekend.
RCU's Final Tune Up On Saturday
After announcing its partnership with Heroes FA to create the RCU Heroes Academy of Excellence earlier this week, Rocket City United will play in it's final tune-up this Saturday at Columbia High School at 7:30 PM. The format of this match will be a internal scrimmage within the team's roster. The "Red vs. Black" match is free and open to the public.
AHSAA Finals Revisited
Speaking of RCU, Steve Van Horn, the veteran RCU defender, coached the only local High School team to capture a state title this year, when he led Grissom to a 3:0 victory over Hoover in the Boys 6A finals. The Huntsville Times has a nice set of photos catching the action that took place at John Hunt Park last weekend.
Chattanooga FC will host Mexico's Atlas
Just up the road from Huntsville, RCU rivals Chattanooga FC have announced that they will host the Mexican power, FC Atlas of Guadalajara. ChatFC will play the Atlas U-23 squad on May 29th at 7PM. As Greg wrote in his NPSL Southeast preview, Finley Stadium is a special place to watch a match and we should expect a great atmosphere for this one.
