The Atlanta Silverbacks defended their unbeaten record this past weekend with a 2-0 win over the Carolina RailHawks. The win also kept the Silverbacks in first place in the USL First Division – they have the same record, 2-0-2, as the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Two Atlanta Silverbacks players received USL Team of the Week honors for their first time this season. The USL Team of the Week featured Silverbacks captain Rodrigo Rios and newcomer Justin Moore. Rios assisted Moore in the Silverbacks’ second goal on Saturday night.
The Carolina RailHawks will come to town again this Saturday to play the Silverbacks for the third time in as many weeks. The match will be intense as the teams have had two close matches – Atlanta will be looking to remain undefeated and at the top of the table, while Carolina will be looking for revenge and their first win.
