The orange army faces Gaza Boyz as they kick off their inaugural campaign into the Howard County Men’s Winter League this Friday, 1/13/23. The lads expect to continue their success in their scrimmage game against Untouchable Lions to capitalize on a solid opening day. Nothing short of three points is deemed favorable, and the lads will be out in full front to send a swift warning to the entire league. Expectations are at an all-time high, and the squad is ready to show what they’ve been working on for a year.
Gaza Boyz vs. street footie kick off Friday, January 13, 2023, at 9:30 pm EST.
Confidence in the camp
The orange army is going into this game full of confidence. After displaying brilliant team football in their last match, street footie defeated Untouchable Lions 3-2. A win in this rematch will go a long way in preparing the lads for their opening game against VA United in the Rowland Cup. The experience within the camp is contagious and uplifting at the same time.
Club Technical Director, Barak Schecter, announced the appointment of vice-captain Brandon Ayala with this statement “His athleticism allows him to contribute in all thirds of the pitch, linking the defense with the attack, and still have the energy to make a rare attacking run,”
Player to watch: Brandon Ayala
Ayala made four appearances in the Maryland Super Soccer League D2 for street footie after switching from Elite Vision. Brandon Ayala played the entirety of the match in street footie’s highlight 1-2 win against Baltimore Kickers in MSSL 2.
In the build-up to the 2023 Rowland Cup Round 1 match against VA United, Ayala scored a well-placed header against Untouchable Lions in an away friendly.
