MOST COMMENTED

[USL-2] Despite playing the last 61 minutes with 10 players, the Charleston Battery won the United Soccer Leagues Second Division championship in its first season back at the third level of American pro soccer with a 2-1 win over the Richmond Kickers in front of 4,523 at Blackbaud Stadium.

The Battery got goals from USL-2 MVP Lamar Neagle and Ian Fuller but then had to hold off a late Kickers' rally.

Charleston, which had won a USL-1 title in 2003 and USISL Pro League title in 1996, was leading on Neagle's goal in the 26th minute when Colin Falvey was given a straight red three minutes later.

Edson Elcock made it 2-1 in the 73rd minute. In the last two minutes, Elcock hit a shot off the crossbar, and Fuller headed away a Matt Delicate shot headed for the top corner.

“It was exciting for all the fans but not for a coach,” Battery coach Mike Anhaeuser. “It made it exciting for everyone here and made for a great finish, and it showed what this team is all about.”
