Game Recap - Nashville Rhythm June 1


After trailing 2-0 in the first half, the Emerald Force fight back to complete a great comeback and get a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Rhythm. Emerald looked a little sluggish in the first half but fought back in the second to secure a 3-2 victory at home.

Peyton Depriest of the Nashville Rhythm came to play as she netted a goal in the 20th minute. Then she did not wait long to put another one in, getting her second goal in the 23rd minute. These two goals gave the Nashville Rhythm a 2-0 headed in to halftime.

However, the second half was a completely different story. Emerald finally put one in as Anna Bialczak converted on a penalty kick in the 58th minute. Anna Katherine Anderson got in on the action and connected with the back of the net in the 81st minute. With only minutes left and the game tied Emerald's Ally Hale scores, giving the Force a 3-2 lead and the victory. 

The Emerald Force will head to Georgia on Monday to take on Peachtree MOBA. That match will be played at MOBA Soccer Stadium and will begin at 7:00pm.
