March 9, 2019 - Columbia (SC) - The UPSL Game of the Week featured Soda City FC and Charleston United SC which ended in a 2-0 victory of Soda City FC in both of their first league game of the UPSL Spring Season.
With goals scored by both Graham Jermstad in the 29th minute and Nestor Jaramillo in the 51st minute for the finishing touches, Soda City FC (1-0-0 overall) looks to add on from their previous season as they finished third with a playoff run where they eventually lost in the UPSL Mid-Atlantic Playoffs against Savannah Clovers FC.
“We were thrilled with our season opener, as any outing that results in 3 points is a great night in our division. Putting together that kind of performance on the pitch against a quality side like Charleston United can’t be taken likely, with two great goals from Graham Jermstad & Nestor Jaramillo. Our goal is to carry the positive momentum on the road with a key match in Savannah this weekend, and I’m sure the team will be up for the challenge.” Andrew Richardson, GM of Soda City said.
Soda City FC took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute after a Driss Baraket pass at the top of the box slipped past Charleston United SC defenders and Graham Jermstad chipped the GK from the corner of the 6-yard box. Later on the game, the second goal was scored in the 51st minute off a low driven cross which was finished by Nestor Jaramillo for the game winner eventually leading to the club’s first win for the 2019 calendar year.
With the UPSL Southeast Conference – Mid-Atlantic South Division B underway, Soda City FC looks to get revenge against Savannah Clovers (0-0-0 overall) who finished their season last season during the UPSL Playoffs.
