CHARLESTON, S.C. — A month and two days after playing in its most recent USL PRO match, the Antigua Barracuda FC take to the field to visit the Charleston Battery at Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, S.c. at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
The Barracudas (2-6-0, six points), who are 10th out of 11 teams, last played on May 13, which was a 2-1 loss to first-place and defending champion Orlando City.
Since then, many players on the Barracuda prepared with the Antigua & Barbuda National Team for its first two World Cup qualifiers. Antigua dropped a 3-1 decision to the United States in Tampa, Fla. on June 8 before rebounding behind a scoreless draw against Jamaica at home on Tuesday.
The Battery (7-3-0) enter the match tied for second place, five points behind Orlando but having played one game less.
This is the second of four games scheduled between Antigua and the Battery this season. Charleston defeated the Barracudas 4-0 at Blackbaud Stadium on May 4 behind goals from Jose Cuevas, Nicki Paterson, Sallieu Bundu and Dane Kelly.
The Battery will visit Antigua for the two final games on June 28 and July 1.
