STATESBORO, Ga. —South Georgia Tormenta FC’s W League team travels to Peachtree City to take on Peachtree City MOBA for a third time this season.
South Georgia remains unbeaten against MOBA. A 1-0 win at home and a 4-0 win on the road has the team excited to complete the trifecta of wins against MOBA on Tuesday night. A victory will see Tormenta FC inch closer to a potential South Central Division title.
Two minutes and an unclear call from the referee caused South Georgia to lose 2 points in their previous match against Chattanooga Lady Red Wolves SC. A win against second-place Chattanooga would have given Tormenta FC a vote of confidence; however, the fight continues. With two games left, a win against MOBA allows it to make up for the obtained draw.
South Georgia has had clear dominance over MOBA in two previous encounters. However, MOBA has been picking up fire in recent games, a 3-0 upset win against SC United Bantams has brought confidence back to the team. With nothing to lose, MOBA look to cause yet another upset and take the division title race to the last match day of the season.
Amy Andrews’ goal-scoring campaign continues as she leads the W League nationally in goals with twelve. Additionally, Andrews has established herself in the Tormenta FC history books with the most goals scored in a single game.
WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND THE LEAGUE:
The race continues to eliminate potential division winners. With three defeats in three games, SC United Bantams continues to be in poor form. However, Bantams are still able to win the division, but they depend on other teams to drop points and Bantams to win out the rest of their South Central Division fixtures.
The Lady Red Wolves are contenders to represent the South Central Division in the W League playoffs. With a win last Friday at home against SSA, the Lady Red Wolves are now in first place of the division, with South Georgia directly below them with one game less played. However, the Lady Red Wolves could clinch the division if South Georgia cannot win in their final two games. Next Friday, a must-win game for the Lady Red Wolves at SC United Bantams can either make or break their season.
South Georgia holds its playoff opportunities in its own hands. If Tormenta FC manages to win its remaining two games, a playoff spot and the division title will be secured. However, a draw between the Lady Red Wolves and Bantams next Friday can benefit South Georgia and alleviate some pressure.
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.
