ATLANTA, GEORGIA—After six weeks of play, defending United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) Georgia Division Summer Regional Cup champion Atlanta Rovers FC is currently in third place in the UPSL Georgia Premier Division with 12 points, consisting of four wins and two defeats.
Atlanta United Academy leads the pack in the 10-team league, with 15 points made up of five wins and one defeat. United Academy’s Joel Gonzalez, Jonathan Nickerson, and Mawia Haroun provided the winning goals for the team. Last August 14, at around 7 in the evening, the home team, Atlanta Rovers FC, beat the visiting Kalonji Pro-Profile 3-1 to win the coveted 2022 UPSL Georgia Summer Regional Cup at the South Gwinnett Park Stadium. The three winning goals of Atlanta Rovers FC were provided by Chris Duron, Alejandro Rodriguez, and Luke Sexton.
Atlanta Rovers FC Coach AB Aloui is very happy with the first UPSL crown of the team. In the previous meetings between the two soccer clubs, Kalonji always had the advantage in the end. Still, this time, Rovers FC has something up its sleeves that gives them a winning edge against their favored opponent, who was represented by their U-23 team. Rovers FC got the championship slot after beating SEAS Jamaica All-Stars 2-1 in their semifinal duel at the South Gwinnett Park Stadium at 8 in the evening last July 30.
