The Silverbacks defeated the visiting Tobacco Road FC 2-1 at Silverbacks Park on June 18. The visitors took the lead in the first half but Atlanta came back on goals by Joao Mora (penalty) and Douglas Diwa.
The win puts Atlanta solidly into second place in the South Atlantic Conference. With a game in hand, the Silverbacks currently sit five point behind the conference leading Myrtle Beach Mutiny. With the top four in the conference qualifying for the postseason, Atlanta will almost assuredly host a playoff game at Silverbacks Park in early July.
