Battery Bested at Home by San Antonio
The Charleston Battery were defeated by San Antonio FC on Saturday at Patriots Point by a score of 0-7. San Antonio, the league’s defending champions, scored early and often and proved to be too overwhelming for the Battery to overcome. Charleston will look to move past this match and shift their focus to next Saturday’s home game against Monterey Bay FC.
It was a forgettable first half for the Battery to start the game. San Antonio FC took early command of the match with four goals in the opening 32 minutes of play, via Samuel Adeniran, Fabien Garcia and Tani Oluwaseyi, and an own goal by Juan Sebastian Palma that was originally credited to Oluwaseyi.
Charleston searched for a way back into the match and continued to press forward. Arturo Rodriguez and Robbie Crawford registered a shot on target in the 34th minute and 44th minute, respectively, but goalkeeper Jordan Farr saved both attempts.
The first half concluded with San Antonio taking a 0-4 lead into the break.
Play resumed in the second half with the hosts looking to get back into the match. San Antonio managed to add a fifth goal in the 53rd minute by Tani Oluwaseyi. The visitors tacked on a sixth goal in the 80th minute by Ignacio Bailone.
San Antonio would add one more goal right before full-time, making it a 0-7 final score.
After the final whistle, Head Coach Ben Pirmann and defender AJ Paterson discussed the match, with key quotes to follow.
