First-place RailHawks ride road string to three

[USL-1] The Carolina RailHawks won a pair of games on the road and remained first place in the USL First Division, three points ahead of Charleston, which was also victorious in both of its games last week. For all the USL-1 action ...

The RailHawks picked up their third straight win on the road Sunday night with a 1-0 win over the Austin Aztex on Daniel Paladini's penalty kick in the 83rd minute. Since losing to Charleston at WakeMed Soccer Park on May 9, the RailHawks have shut out Miami, Cleveland and Austin.

"After losing that game to Charleston at home, we were heartbroken, and we've reacted in the right way," said Carolina coach Martin Rennie. "We've not only defended well, we've attacked well. Winning on the road in this league is tough. It shows the guys have a determination and a desire to do well."

On Saturday, Charleston beat Rochester, 2-0, on goals by Randi Patterson and Frankie Sanfilippo and remained the only USL-1 team without a defeat.

"They came in to make it a physical battle," said Battery coach Mike Anhaeuser. "The first half was a little chippy, but I think we wore them down over time. The goals are going to come. If teams will come in here and open up with us, then we will get more goals. But right now teams are coming in here and playing us defensively. We're responding the right way."
