If you look at the table this one should be an easy match for the Battery. but the old saying goes anything can happen and that is why they play the game. Charleston are still undefeated 1/4 of the way through the season and even more telling is that they have only given up two goals this season. Cleveland on the other hand have only scored 2 goals and have given up 12 goals in 6 games. They seem to be a team suffering from a mass overhaul in the off season, only to find out they were moving to D1 and had to scramble to put together a team. Cleveland are also playing Friday night in Cary NC so they will be feeling the effects of there second match in 24 hours with the bonus of a 4 hour bus ride. The Battery will potentially be without Armstong, Woodbine, Yoshi, and Antoniuk due to injuries. Hemming will be on international duty with Canada. so the Battery will once again be forced to field a different line up. Patterson and spicer up top seemed pretty effective against Rochester and I would keep the Back line as it is. Midfield will probably be Buete, Truesick, Fuller and Williams. Weather look to be nice for the weekend if not a little warm and humid. I think that will work in our favor vs. the guys from Ohio. We will be tailgating prior to kickoff starting around 5 in the usual place (just by the East stand Entrance). come by for a beer or a bite to eat ( i know there will be homemade sauage, pork tenderlion, and Kabobs for the eating at a minimum.) On a side note, i expect attendence will be low for this game as the local ECHL hockey team, the Stingrays, potentially could win the Kelly Cup championship at the same time. They are currently up 2 games to 1 in a seven game series. Game four is Friday night and if they Stingrays win that match, they will have an opportunity to win it all in Game 5 Sautrday night at home. There has been a lot of deserved hype and a good buzz going on for the team. Lets Go Rays! Back to the Battery, I'm going to predict a 3-0 game with goals from Fuller, Spicer and Patterson. UP THE BATTERY!!!
