Memphis 901 FC news story

Only two points separate Memphis 901 FC, currently ranked No. 8, and a top-3 spot in the USL Championship Western Conference

The Beale Street Boys are undefeated in six of their last seven games and have settled on their identity of relentless offense and timely, measured defense. The midfield of Emerson Hyndman and Zac Duncan links the backline to the fearsome attack, which includes Bruno Lapa, Dylan Borczak, Luiz Fernando and USLC Player of the Month nominee Marlon at the top of the formation.

Memphis has scored 45 shots in its last two games, including one goal, after facing two standout performances from opposing goaltenders.

Last time out, 901 FC forced five saves from Christian Herrera on six shots on target as they were denied the comeback three points despite dominating the game for 80 minutes.

“The team’s response was first-class,” said Head Coach Stephen Glass. “Any time you have a team that reacts like that to adversity, you are in a good position. We were pleased with the overall performance, disappointed. But it says something about the quality of the team.”

Rhode Island is ranked #11 in the Eastern Conference in their first year of USL Championship competition at 1-4-8. The club will be hungry for a result to break their current run of seven games without a win.

They will look to use the quick turnaround for the midweek fixture to quell the sting of a 2-0 defeat at home to Detroit City FC last time out.

Kickoff for the game is at 7:00 PM CT at AutoZone Park. Fans can get tickets on the club’s official ticket page.
