RailHawks win fall season opener, 1-0

Posted August 4, 2013

— Brian Shriver converted his 9th goal of the year to send the Carolina RailHawks (1W-0T-0L, 3pts) to a 1-0 victory over FC Edmonton (0W-0T-1L, 3pts). The match started after a 2 hour delay caused by a serve thunderstorm in the Triangle area and experienced a power outage 6 minutes into the first half. Once the match was underway, the RailHawks established their possession oriented game on their way to outshooting Edmonton 17 to 6.

“Very happy, glad we could start the Fall Season off with a win and take the three points,” said RailHawks head coach Colin Clarke. “The boys came out sharp and we played the way we wanted. We need to work on our precision in the final third and take those opportunities.”

In the 31st minute of play, RailHawks midfielder Enzo Martinez streaked down the left and after stepping past one defender found Brian Ackley at the top of the box. Ackley took one deft touch and played Shriver through on goal. As he has done all season, Shriver found the back of the net and the three points for the RailHawks.

Up next for the RailHawks is a visit to Atlanta on Saturday, August 10th. The match will be broadcast live on www.CarolinaRailHawks.com/live. On Saturday, August 17th the RailHawks will face the most historic club in American soccer, when they host the New York Cosmos.
