Tomorrow marks our eighth Premier League of America (PLA) contest as we are set to travel to Muskegon Cahtolic Central High School for the rematch against the Risers of Muskegon (2nd place; 15pts, 5-1-1). Earlier this season, Muskegon defeated your Purple & Gold (5th place; 9 pts, 3-4-0) by a score of 3-0 in front of our largest crowd in club history (707). In their last match, Muskegon defeated Carpathia FC, 1-0. Coming off a fresh win over Toledo Villa FC, Oakland looks to secure a revenge victory and extend the win streak to two as playoff hopes are on the line. Kickoff is slated for 6:00 PM. Win and stay alive.
Every match is important in such a short season. But to say that this is as ‘just another game’ is an understatement. Our players are ready. I’m ready. Let’s get it. – Coach Morana.
