STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC’s USL W League team visits Peachtree City MOBA this Thursday, June 16, at 7:30 p.m. ET. The next couple of matches are crucial for a Tormenta FC playoff push. Earlier in the season, South Georgia reigned victorious in a 1-0 result over MOBA.
Elise Holcey’s first goal came in Tormenta FC’s win against Peachtree City MOBA. Now, a visit to MOBA will surely test whether or not South Georgia is playoff-bound. South Georgia was defeated last Sunday at Chattanooga, the team’s first-ever defeat. Now, Tormenta FC has an opportunity to compete for a spot in USL’s inaugural W League playoffs.
Captain Sydney Martinez continues her form in goal; the goalkeeper from the University of Southern Florida has three clean sheets and looks to obtain her fourth clean sheet in Peachtree City.
MOBA has been unable to find a win this season. With three defeats and three draws, MOBA is the only winless team in the division. A previous draw against SSA paused their three-game losing streak.
In June of 2021, Tormenta FC was named a founding member of the USL W League, an elite pre-professional pathway for women looking to build their careers both on and off the pitch. For two decades between 1995 and 2015, the W League saw some of the biggest names past and present in the sport compete on the field, and this new era will build on the legacy of its predecessor. In alignment with the USL League Two season, the W League will kick off in May and end with the W League Playoffs and W League Final in late July.
