What’s at Stake:
FCTB is playing the USF men’s soccer team in a preseason match for the second year in a row. Last year FCTB ended the preseason in a 1-1 draw against their green and gold rival. The game-tying goal came in the 85th minute from Kwame “JJ” Adjeman-Pamboe thanks to a well-placed assist from Aaron King, minutes after being subbed into the match.
This is FCTB’s last preseason game before the 2011 Season opener on Saturday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m. at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg.
Newly-signed F Warren Ukah is expected to be in uniform for the first time Sunday night. He will wear jersey number 9.
Stat Leaders: M Pascal Millien leads the squad with four goals in the preseason, while M Chad Burt has a team-high three assists.
