Eduardo Coudet converted another last minute penalty kick giving the Strikers their first win of the season
The Fort Lauderdale Strikers began the first game of their four game road trip tonight with a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Silverbacks at Atlanta Silverbacks Park in Atlanta, GA.

The Silverbacks were coming off two consecutive losses and were searching for a little momentum themselves.
This week, the match was decided again on a 90th minute penalty as Eduardo ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“ChachoÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Coudet put the Strikers ahead in the dying moments to give the Strikers an important road victory.
