ATLANTA, GEORGIA—After a lackluster performance in their previous United Premier Soccer League seasons, the Atlanta Rovers FC finally nailed down its first-ever championship trophy in the semi-professional league. On August 14 at around 7 in the evening, the home team Atlanta Rovers FC demolished the visitingKalonji 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 of 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. Bates and Sexton provided the goals for Rovers in their win. Kalonji got the slot for the championship after they beat Potros FC 2-1 in the other semifinal duel. The UPSL is an American professional development soccer league founded in Santa Ana, California.
