UAB'S Men's soccer team fell to the A-League Professional team Atlanta Silverbacks 2-1, Thursday night in a spring exhibition game at UAB's West Campus Field.
Atlanta's Iggy Moleca scored the game winner in the 42nd minute on a breakaway for the win. The Silverbacks scored both of their goals in the second half.
"I was pretty pleased with the way our team played. Atlanta has a pretty good team," Blazer head coach Mike Getman said. "We were able to create more chances than I thought we could. We just made one mistake at the end of the game which gave them the goal."
Martin Rey scored the Blazers goal on an assist from Mike Garcia in the 39th minute of the first half. That gave UAB a 1-0 halftime lead which held until Atlanta scored in the fifth minute of the second half.
