Flash Look To Build On Early Season Form With A Three Point Raid On Orange County
The undefeated San Diego Flash remain on the road for Round 4 of the NPSL West-Southern Conference and head up the freeway to Orange County and a date with the third placed Fullerton Rangers.
The weekends clash is already looming as a potential six pointer in the race for the West-Southern Conference Title of which the 2011 Champion Flash are determined to retain.
Head Coach Warren Barton is expecting a tactical battle from the two sides that both made last year’s divisional play-offs.
“We know each other well (Flash and Fullerton) and I expect this to be a high stakes game in which the team that wants it the most will ultimately prevail.
“Our opponents have been impressive to date, but were brought back down to earth last week with a loss. If we can get an early goal it will exert more pressure on them which they are yet to prove they are comfortable with.
We are more than good enough to come away with the win which will put us in a terrific position for the season after just four rounds.” Barton said.
San Diego Flash return home next weekend for another top three clash against Santa Clarita Storm with club CEO, Clent Alexander calling on local soccer fans to come out and experience a National Professional Soccer League (NPSL) match.
“Many people ask me about the Flash playing in Major League Soccer (MLS). My take is, MLS officials won't ever take San Diego seriously if the fans don't support the Top Flight soccer that already exists here. We're doing what we can. We recruit quality San Diego players, have a highly decorated coaching staff with Warren Barton (Head Coach) and Eric Wynalda (Player Talent Coordinator)
We are back at home next week (Flash play out of Del Norte High School) and I would encourage the San Diego soccer community to get behind the Flash, our local talent and most importantly the sport of outdoor soccer in general” Alexander said.
