USL Weekly Preview - May 12/13
Midfielder Daniel Bruce made his professional debut for New Mexico United in the win over San Antonio FC last weekend, in front of over 15,000 fans.
Three PASS4Soccer clients started for their teams in Week 9, with Macauley King, Will Seymore and Johnny Fenwick all being named in the starting line-ups.
Joe Holland came off the bench, in the first-half, for Birmingham Legion during the 2-2 draw away to Memphis 901 FC.
Each of the seven players, who could feature this weekend, gained scholarships through P4S, went on to have successful university careers - as well as graduating with a degree - and are now playing professionally in the United States.
USL Championship - Week 10
Charleston Battery vs Saint Louis FC - May 12 (12:30am)
Lewis Hilton wasn't in action last weekend as Saint Louis' match, at home to Ottawa Fury, was postponed due to the weather.
Saint Louis, who are unbeaten in three matches, currently sit third in the Eastern Conference, two points off leaders New York Red Bulls II.
This week's opposition, Charleston Battery, are also having a good start to the 2019 season. They're unbeaten in four matches, but have drawn their last two.
In their last encounter, Pittsburgh Riverhounds took a two-goal lead in the first 12 minutes, but Charleston fought back and claimed a point after scoring two late goals.
Birmingham Legion FC vs Louisville City FC - May 12 (1:00am)
Holland was in action for Birmingham Legion in Week 9 as he came on, just before half-time, and played the rest of the match against Memphis.
The 901, who currently sit 15th in the conference, hadn't won a game in six matches before the 2-2 draw with Birmingham last week.
Birmingham are sitting just outside of the top 10 in the conference, and they face Louisville City in Week 10.
Last season's champions suffered a shock defeat to strugglers Swope Park Rangers and will be looking to bounce back from that.
San Antonio FC vs Orange County SC - May 12 (1:30am)
Defender Fenwick started and played 68 minutes in the defeat against New Mexico United last weekend - in front of a sell-out crowd.
San Antonio sit third-bottom in the conference after the defeat, having only won three of their nine games this season.
Orange County, their opponents this week, are unbeaten in their last two matches and picked up three points last time out after a 2-1 victory over Phoenix Rising.
Sacramento Republic FC vs Reno 1868 FC - May 12 (3:30am)
Seymore played the full 90 minutes for Reno 1868 during the draw with Tulsa Roughnecks in Week 9.
The midfielder has started in eight of the nine matches he's featured in this season and his team are sitting second in the Western Conference.
Reno go up against Sacramento Republic this weekend, a team, who hadn't won a game in three prior to the victory last Saturday.
Despite leading in the game, Sacramento went on to suffer a 4-2 defeat to Las Vegas Lights.
El Paso Locomotive FC vs New Mexico United - May 13 (1:00am)
Defender Andrew Fox didn't feature for El Paso Locomotive last weekend against Colorado Springs Switchbacks.
El Paso are now unbeaten in their last three matches, winning two, and go into the local derby this weekend in good form.
New Mexico currently lead the way in the Western Conference, having won 3-0 against San Antonio in Week 9.
Bruce made his first pro appearance as he came off the bench to play, just under, 20 minutes against San Antonio.
USL League One - Week 7
South Georgia Tormenta FC vs Tormenta FC II - May 13 (12:00am)
Charlie Dennis started for South Georgia Tormenta as they picked up their first road victory of the season.
The midfielder played 82 minutes during the win over FC Tucson, but Tormenta weren't in action last weekend.
Tormenta are currently sitting second in USL League One, while their opponents Toronto FC II are third-bottom in the league. They lost 3-1 to Forward Madison in their last match.
