RCU Ready For Rival Atlanta FC

Rocket City United and Atlanta FC are in a similar, unfamiliar position heading into Saturday night's match at the Madison City Schools Stadium. The two rivals are the only champions of the NPSL's Southeast Region. Atlanta took home the title in 2008 and RCU in 2009, but both teams face an uphill battle, if either would like to repeat as champion in 2010.
Atlanta has dropped its first two matches against Pumas and Chattanooga FC by identical 1:0 scorelines and desperately need points from this match. RCU sit in a little better situation with one point from a draw against Pumas in its first match. Each team is struggling to score goals and will look to shake off the early season rust and put together the first of what they hope will be a string of good results. Meanwhile, Chattanooga will host Pumas in a match which will decide who will sit at the top of the NPSL Southeast region table.

The match is likely to be a fiesty affair with so much on the line. Gates at the Madison City Schools Stadium open at 6:30, but you can join the team for its pregame meal at Tommy's Pizza in BridgeStreet.

Also, the RCU reserve squad will play Friday night at 7 PM at Columbia High School. The reserve matches are free and open to the public.
