The Charleston Battery will hit the road for their next match when they take on Loudoun United FC on Saturday, May 28th, in Leesburg, Virginia. Kickoff at Segra Field is slated for 7 pm.
The Black and Yellow swept Loudoun across four matches in 2021 and will look to keep that streak going. Last time the Battery visited Virginia, they beat Loudoun 3-5 in a high-intensity evening that featured DZ Harmon’s first career professional goal among the five tallied. Charleston outscored Loudoun 10-3 during the campaign.
Loudoun enter Saturday’s match in search of a return to form after a strong start to the 2022 season. The side were undefeated through their first three games, two wins and one draw, but are yet to secure a point since the end of March. Last Sunday, Loudoun fell 0-3 to Memphis 901 FC in a match that saw the visitors score early and often at Segra Field. The Virginia side had tight games on the road against Hartford and Detroit before returning home, and one can expect the club to fight hard in search of a result.
Charleston are also aiming to get back on track after a strong start to the season. The Black and Yellow hit the road for the first time in a month and will hope to bring back three points ahead of a brief homestand in early June. Charleston succumbed 0-4 against The Miami FC last Saturday in a game that also saw the visitors score early and often. A silver lining to the night was when AJ Paterson made his 2022 debut as a substitute in the 77th minute, the return of his presence should give the squad a boost heading into Saturday.
The weekend duel will be the final regular-season USL Championship match for the Battery against Loudoun at Segra Field. The Virginia outfit are due to compete in MLS Next Pro starting in 2023.
Charleston lead the all-time series with a 5-1-0 record over Loudoun.
The away match will also be close to home for Maryland native Brett St. Martin when Charleston make their lone visit to the DMV area in 2022.
Battery defender Matt Sheldon is slated to make his 100th regular season appearance in the USL Championship this Saturday, as the defender currently sits at 99.
