ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe felt it was important to have Cristian back here as a defender to give us cover,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œInjuries have left us a little thin at the back, and Cristian is a young defender who did well with us when he was here on trial.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
QuiÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â±ones, 20, had been on loan with the Silverbacks since June 22. He has served as a reserve most of the season thus far, starting in AtlantaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s 1-0 loss to Carolina on July 30.
The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (3-8-4) fell 3-2 against the Atlanta Silverbacks (2-2-11) in front of 2,661 at Lockhart Stadium Saturday night. Brian ArguezesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ first goal of the season and Abe ThompsonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s second were not enough as the Silverbacks scored three goals to win their first game on the road this year.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe knew Atlanta wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t what their record shows,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said head coach Daryl Shore. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThey got three goals and made it tough for us.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
The Strikers attack started strong with Eduardo Coudet creating a chance from a dead ball for Abe Thompson to score the first goal in the 7th minute. Ten minutes later, AtlantaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Junior Sandoval provided an effective cross to set up Lucas Paulini for his second goal of the season, leveling the score at 1-1.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe got a good start to the game, got the goal, then gave up defensively,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Shore.
The teaching pro at Coral Reef Park in South Miami, Borromeo and her fellow pro Leroy Pettis have seen the USTA's new 10 and Under Tennis format create an explosion of junior tennis interest at their center. The two began as a "traveling team," using the 10 and Under Tennis equipment on their own before their city-run facility embraced the format.
Now Borromeo and Pettis oversee a small herd of 10 and Under Tennis and Jr. Team Tennis players, as exemplified at the Jr. Team Tennis Florida Section Championships where they fielded teams in the 8-and-under, 10-and-under, 12-and-under, 14-and-under, and two in the 18-and-under divisions.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe are happy with the point,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said head coach Daryl Shore. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe didn't play our best soccer and the field was tough, that being said the guys battled for the result.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
FC Edmonton took the lead in the 29th minute when midfielder Chris Lemire took a corner kick and defender Paul Hamilton connected with a strong header directed past Strikers goalkeeper Matt Glaeser. The teams traded opportunities, but the first half ended 1-0 in favor of FC Edmonton.
