Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) – At one point this season, Rocket City United had six-straight matches where they beat or tied its opponent. Though that streak ended Friday, RCU is still leading its division offensively with 16 goals. RCU says many of those goals are happening late in matches.
“We’ve been good in the last 10-15 minutes in the game,” said Gerry Cleary, RCU head coach. “Teams come at us and we counter-attack them. We transition pretty well from defending to attacking.”
“We’ve been moving the ball well, everyone has been paying attention and listening and offensively we’ve been hungry and stuff and everyone wants to score goals and make the team win,” said Khurram Shazad, RCU midfielder.
RCU will host Chattanooga at 7:30 PM Wednesday at John Hunt Park.
