GREENVILLE, SC. - Two teams atop the USL League One standings met at Legacy Early College on Wednesday, and Greenville Triumph SC came out on top with a 1-0 win against South Georgia Tormenta FC.
Luca Mayr looked lively throughout the first 45 minutes and nearly created a couple goals for the away side. Meanwhile, Rhys Williams turned in an admirable shift on the back line to help lead the club to a third consecutive clean sheet.
In the second half, both sides pinged the crossbar, with Mikie Rowe thumping the woodwork with a powerful strike in the 84th minute. However, former Tormenta FC 2 forward JJ Donnelly scored in stoppage time for Greenville to see the home side secure all three points.
Tormenta FC returns to Statesboro ahead of its fourth home match of the season on Saturday, when it will host Fort Lauderdale CF at 8 p.m. ET. Fans wanting to attend the match in person should purchase tickets in advance to secure their seats as capacity will be limited due to government regulations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
RHYS WILLIAMS, Defender: The right back had a strong showing throughout the 90 minutes, winning seven of nine duels while also recording four tackles and two clearances.
