    RCU have a big match tonight against Performance FC. If they want to come close to qualifying for the playoffs, they need to get 3 points from this game. That's asking a lot from the new coach.

    Gonna be a hot one today and the 5PM kickoff is brutal! :eek:

    Should be a fun one to watch.

    So, RCU got thier first win. After dominating for the first 70 minutes and racking up a 5:0 lead, RCU lost a bit of concentration and Performance responded with 3 consolation goals. Still, a good win.

    Re: Alabama Spirit - Birmingham, AL

    Rocket City United dropped the first leg of the Alabama Derby 2-1, and then on Sunday night they ended up in a 1-1 draw giving Alabama Spirit the Alabama Derby and bragging rights.

    Rocket City United hosts division leading Atlanta FC this weekend in Decatur, AL (not to be confused with Decatur, GA).

    Also, RCU has been busy, they have set up an identification camp with Bundesliga new boys, 1899 Hoffenheim next month.
