I know drSoFlaFan usually creates these, but the game is Wednesday and we didn't have a thread to discuss the match. Please forgive me! Wednesday, April 25 • Kickoff: 7:30 PM (Not 1:00)• Lockhart Stadium Big game for both teams. The Strikers "welcome" rivals Puerto Rico Islanders with an unbeaten season on the line for both teams. Despite a losing franchise history against the Islanders, the Strikers got the better of them last season with 3-2-1 record, including two dramatic wins and a draw at home. The Strikers are coming off of an ultimately disappointing a 2-2 draw with the San Antonio Scorpions, having conceded in the 90th minute, and then collecting a pair of unnecessary red cards. The team will have to make do without two leaders, Abe Thompson, and Toni Ståhl, who has been a rock at the back this season. Andy Herron, the only Striker to score so far this season, picked up his second NASL Offensive Player of the Week award for his pair of goals in San Antonio. He is currently tied at the top of the goalscorers chart with three goals this campaign. The Islanders sit atop the standings with 10 points from four games, and are coming off of a huge 3-1 victory over the RailHawks. David Foley and Fort Lauderdale's #1 enemy, Jonathan Faña, have picked up right where they left off last season in fantastic form, contributing to an attack that has already found the back of the net eight times. Goalkeeper David Martin, who served as backup to Ray Burse last season, has taken the starting role with aplomb, conceding just once in four games, and picking up two NASL Defensive Player of the Week awards. His solid start to the season has been a huge factor to the Islanders' success thus far. Head Coach Daryl Shore and the Strikers will have their work cut out for them in this one. Let's discuss.
