RCU beats Knoxville in Season Opener

Sorry it took so long to post this.  Yesterday was Mother's Day and soccer was put on the back burner for the day.
Rocket City United went on the road Saturday night to face expansion side Knoxville Force.  It was the Force's inaugural match and a large crowd of nearly 1,200 were disappointed by the 2:0 victory for the visitors.  Andrew Nkurunungi scored two good goals just before halftime to give RCU all it needed to secure the three points.  Knoxville stepped up the pressure early in the second half, but RCU weathered the storm with some nice saves from goalkeeper Jeffrey Preston.  RCU then successfully killed the game with good possessional play.  Full game reports can be found here and here.

I'll have more on the match later.
