Strikers Fail to Gain Ground in Atlanta Loss

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (9W-8T-10L) fell to the Atlanta Silverbacks (6W-8T-12L) by a final of 1-0 on Saturday, Sept. 15. The game-winning goal came from Atlanta forward Matt Horth in the 11th minute of the match. The Strikers remain in fifth place in the NASL standings despite the loss. Fort Lauderdale completes their regular season schedule on Sunday, Sept. 23, against FC Edmonton.

The Strikers started the match with a few early chances, but failed to directly challenge Atlanta goalkeeper Joe Nasco. Then, in the 11th minute, a turnover near midfield put the ball on the feet of Lucas Paulini. The Atlanta midfielder turned and found forward Matt Horth who was streaking near the top right corner of the penalty area. Instead of shooting toward the far post, Horth placed his shot low and just inside the near post to beat a flat-footed Glaeser.
