NPSL Southeast Weekend Recap

While Rocket City United held its final tune-up, the other teams in the NPSL Southeast also took to the field, including the season opener that featured Atlanta FC travelling to Birmingham to take on Pumas.

Birmingham Pumas opened up the NPSL Southeast season with a hard fought 1:0 win over Atlanta FC. Pumas took advantage of a quick free kick just outside the area to catch the Atlanta defense napping to score the lone goal of the match. Despite tremendous pressure on the Pumas goal toward the end of the match, Atlanta FC could not equalize.

Regals FC 2: 4 Tulsa FC

NPSL Southeast debutant FC Tulsa traveled down to Houston, TX to take on prospective NPSL squad Regals FC in preseason friendly that took place in a torrential downpour. Regals got off to a royal start with 2 goals in the first 35 minutes despite going down to 10 men with a sending off of Regals' player. After shaking off their road-weary legs, Tulsa responded with 3 goals in the final 10 minutes of the first half. Tulsa then added a second half goal for the 4:2 scoreline.

Chattanooga FC Holds Intrasquad Scrimmage
After the previous week's dominating victory 5:0 over the Nashville Metros, CFC held an open door intrasquad scrimmage. The team is preparing for their first match away to Atlanta FC next Saturday and the big match-up against Atlas of Guadalajara on May 29th.
