RCU Finally Win at Home vs All-stars; Erie beats Milwaukee

RCU Drills All-stars 3:1 for First Home Win
Rocket City United's head coach Gerry Cleary hasn't had much to smile about after home games this season, but he was beaming after Friday night's All-star game.  His side who finished last in the Southeast Region took on and thumped a side filled with the best talent in the NPSL.  On each side of the break, Keniel Hyde took advantage of All-stars defensive errors to give RCU the 2:0 lead.  The All-stars were able to answer back through a familiar face.  RCU's lone All-star representative, Joseph Omondi, scored a poachers goal to pull the All-stars back within one.  But in the dying seconds of the match a brilliant mazy 60 yard run and finish from Andrew Nkururnungi sealed the victory for the home side. 

Erie Admirals Claim Third Place

Disappointed about their loss on Thursday, the Erie Admirals emphatically staked their claim as the third place team with a 5:0 drubbing of the Milwaukee Bavarians on Friday night.  Erie was paced by Gavin Falconer who scored twice.  Aaron Meehl came off the bench to bag a goal before Erie added two goals at the death by Michael Blythe and Shane Howard.
