Lou City blanks Charleston

(Louisville City FC Release )

CHARLESTON, S.C. — With Charleston Battery’s 29-match unbeaten run on the line in a torrential downpour at MUSC Health Stadium on Saturday, Louisville City FC (7-1-3, 24 points) was unbeatable for the 10th consecutive match in all competitions. First-half goals by George Davis IV and Man of the Match Kyle Smith shattered Charleston’s two-year home-unbeaten run while a fifth consecutive shutout by goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh and his defense has reached 465 minutes without allowing a goal.

“The first have held two good goals for us, but I think we could always play better,” Louisville City coach James O’Connor said. “By and large, the result was fair in those conditions, but we know what to work on moving forward. We have big matches ahead, with the Open Cup and Orlando B in the league on the weekend. This match is behind us now and we need to improve and get ready for the next massive fixture.”

With just three points separating the teams entering the match, LouCity controlled the tempo from the start – registering 15 shots to Charleston’s five.
