RCU Victorious Over Struggling Jacksonville United

After going behind in the first ten minutes for the second game in a row, Rocket City United (2W-0D-1L) fought back to score three unanswered goals to defeat the winless Jacksonville United FC (0-0-4).  Two goals by debutante Kenniel Hyde and a third by super-sub Freddy Okello where enough to make the long ride home a happy one for RCU.  The three points bring RCU's total to six and enough to guarantee them third place in the table after this weekend's action is tallied.  

In the rest of the NPSL Southeast, it was a weekend of derbies.  The I-75 Derby saw Chattanooga FC (2-1-0) remain on top of the table by defeating the visiting Knoxville Force (1-0-2) 1:0.  On Friday night in the first of two weekend matches between the two Atlanta teams, the Georgia Revolution (2-0-0) traveled east to upend the Atlanta Silverbacks Reserves (1-1-1) 3:2.  The same two teams will step on the field in Conyers in the Atlanta Derby rematch on Sunday.
