ATLANTA, GEORGIA—After four weeks of play, LGSA takes the lead in the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) Georgia Premier Division with 10 points consisting of three wins and one draw. Defending (UPSL) Georgia Division Summer Regional Cup champion Atlanta Rovers FC is currently in second place among the 10 participating teams with nine points consisting of three wins and one defeat.
Rovers FC hopes to return to its winning ways when they face the skidding Potros FC on October 2 at 7 p.m. at the Marietta High School in Marietta. Rovers FC is slightly favored to beat Potros, who also suffered a 1-3 defeat against FC Birmingham last week. On September 24 at around 1 p.m, the visiting Rovers FC suffered a 0-3 defeat against the home team, Atlanta United Academy U-19 team, at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground in Marietta.
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 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.
