Georgia Revolution win in first ever meeting with Peachtree City MOBA

A late goal broke a 70 minute deadlock.

After a storm had cut the first meeting short between Georgia Revolution and Peachtree City MOBA on Saturday night. The two teams got back together on Monday night to play a full match.

Saturday's match was all Revolution until the match was called off just before halftime. Possession was split equally between the two sides, but the Revs took far better advantage of their chances. By the 20-minute mark, the Revolution were up 2-0 and were pressing for a third. Any chance MOBA created was easily dealt with by a defense led by central defender, Ibrahim Faye.

As the Revolution remained in comfortable control heading toward halftime, there was a rumble of thunder and the referee immediately halted play. After waiting for almost thirty minutes and the storm not appearing to have eased, the match was postponed to Monday night.

Monday's friendly started off almost opposite of Saturday night's. Peachtree City scored first off an early corner kick. In the 5th minute, MOBA delivered a cross that the Revolution failed to clear, it was thumped into the back of the net by a MOBA player. Peachtree City's one goal advantage did not last long. The Revolution were able to equalize after the veteran, Scott Redding, converted on a corner kick. The two teams battled it out throughout the first half and went into the break deadlocked at 1-1.

The second half was just as physical and level as the first with both teams having a fair amount of chances. In the 85th minute, however, Georgia Revolution pulled in front after Adam McCabe scored the go-ahead goal with a sublime right-footed strike from near the top of the box that gave the keeper no chance. The Revolution were able to hold out the last few minutes of the game and emerged victorious with a 2-1 final score.

Georgia Revolution take on the Birmingham Hammers this Saturday at home in their last preseason friendly before they begin the NPSL season in a match against in-state rivals Atlanta Silverbacks on May 14th.

Peachtree City MOBA start the PDL season on a road trip against Mississippi Brilla in two weeks. Their first home game isn't until June 8th against Carolina Dynamo.
