Battery Host Monterey Bay on Saturday at Patriots Point
The Charleston Battery are set to host Monterey Bay FC on Sat., May 20, in an interconference showdown in the Lowcountry. Kickoff at Patriots Point is set for 5 pm.
Saturday’s clash is the first-ever fixture between Charleston and Monterey Bay. MBFC played their inaugural season last year.
The Battery (5W-2L-3D, 18 pts) will look to bounce back from their previous match, a 0-7 defeat at home to San Antonio FC in a game that was the Battery’s third match in seven days. Despite the loss, Charleston remain atop the Eastern Conference table, one point ahead of Louisville City FC.
Monterey Bay (3W-3L-4D, 13 pts) enter Saturday’s game also aiming to rebound from a defeat in the previous week. MBFC fell 2-1 on the road to New Mexico United after making a late charge to tie the game that ultimately came up short.
Fidel Barajas is one to keep an eye on for the Battery. The youngster got off to a hot start with one goal and three assists in the season’s opening quarter and will look to add to his total on Saturday.
Alex Dixon is the player to watch for Monterey Bay. He leads MBFC with seven goals in 10 games this season and has tallied three goals and one assist all-time against the Battery in 11 appearances.
Robbie Crawford will have an opportunity to face his former club for the first time. Crawford spent the first half of the 2022 season with Monterey Bay before completing a transfer back to Charleston.
Aidan Apodaca is approaching 100 career appearances in the USL Championship regular season, he currently sits at 98.
Augi Williams will look to continue climbing the ranks of the USL Championship’s all-time regular season scoring list. Williams has tallied 58 goals, the 13th-most in league history, and is four away from cracking the top 10.
The club is celebrating Night of Champions where local teams, all sports and ages, will be recognized during the evening for winning their respective competitions.
