Pre-Match Report: Virginia Beach United vs. North Carolina Fusion U23

By Everton Carvalho, 06/14/19, 1:00PM EDT


Virginia Beach United is getting ready to face North Carolina Fusion U23 tomorrow night, Saturday 15th, at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex at 7 p.m. (ET). This will be VBU’s fifth home game, their seventh in the regular season.


Who’s on the other side?

North Carolina Fusion U23 is currently number one in the South Atlantic Division USL League Two standings with a 4-1-2 record. However, the team has played seven games already, one more than Virginia Beach United, who has a 3-3 record.

Except for their two wins against Tobacco Road FC, North Carolina seems to struggle when they play away. They dropped points against Wake FC, North Carolina FC U23, and Tri-Cities Otters playing at their stadiums. The ̈home ̈ factor can be crucial for VBU in this game.

Cameron Joice and Faisal Almubaslat are two players VBU needs to be careful with. With the help of Nicholas Spielman, who has two assists so far, both Joice and Almubaslat have three goals each.


What do we have?

With Samuel Pollard, who already has two assists for United, and Oliver Padilla in goal, who has not conceded once in the league, VBU is ready to grab three more points and build a winning streak after last week’s win against Wake FC.

With the support of our fans, and depending on other league results, Virginia Beach United can get to the second spot in the standings and be in good position to fight for the league title.
