Coach Richard Opanuga and the players
SGFC Eagles were forced to hard earned victory against Philadelphia Atoms in front of their fans that turned massively to support them in the first game of the ASL Fall Season. 

It was really a Good game at the Paint Branch Field, as both teams playing for the vital 3 points. Coach Richard Opanuga opted for 4 - 4- 2 formation putting Arinze and Obinna thier rock solid defender at the Centre back and Aaron and Uzo at Left and Right back to complete the 4 man defence" Angelo, Reuben, Sheikh and Yankeh are the midfield marshal to cover all gaps and release final passes to Mo Jawara and Manny upfront to torment the visitors denfence and every players on the field fought hard and gave their 100 percent performance. 

Coach Richard told that we are nothing grateful but proud of team cohesion displayed by the players from the blast of the whistle to the stoppage time.

Despite that we created several scoring chances but we were able to convert few to goals. The Eagles 23rd minutes goal lead of the season netted by star man Mo Jawara.

Coach Richard Opanuga addressing the players
Combination of Osumanu Otto and Shiekh Bangura in the midfield was great and productive. Osumanu was everywhere winning balls and stopping all attacks of the Atoms to cause upset. The Eagles also defended well as they are studded with the squad marshalling of the Skipper Obinna Iloka..

The Coach introduced Haitian National team U20 player Davidson Celidor to make his debut this season and he made himself the super sub by scoring the wining goal in the 83rd minutes of the game and gave the Eagles all 3 points in the first game of ASL fall season.

SGFC Eagles would be on a revenge mission journey away from home against unbeaten champions, Philadelphia Fury and they hope to continue their winning form to make it two out of two and claim the possible six points.
