The Silverback women look to start the 2012 season off with a perfect 2-0 record, when they welcome in the VSI Tampa Flames to Atlanta Silverbacks Park this Friday evening at 7:00 PM.
The Silverbacks took down the Central SC Cobras last Friday 1-0, on a penalty kick goal by Stacey Balaam. The back line for the women was outstanding, denying the Cobras any quality looks throughout the contest.
VSI Tampa has one point after two games, earning a 2-2 draw against the Cobras on Sunday, this after dropping 3-0 to the first-place Charlotte Lady Eagles this past Friday.
Atlanta will be looking to keep pace with Charlotte, who sits atop the league after a week of action with six points and a 2-0 record.
The two teams have not met in the past two seasons and will meet two more times this season with the next game on Friday, June 15, at Atlanta Silverbacks Park.
This will be the second consecutive home game for the Silverbacks, with two more scheduled for next Friday and Saturday.
