CARvFCE

The Carolina RailHawks (2W- 0T-4L, 6pts) return to NASL action to face NASL foe, FC Edmonton (1W-2T-3L, 5pts). Saturday’s matchup is set for 7:30pm at WakeMed Soccer Park. The match will be web streamed live on NASLLive.com and broadcast on the Radio on 99.9 HD-3 The Ticket.

The RailHawks are coming of a heartbreaker loss at home to the Tampa Bay Rowdies this past weekend. Despite dominating possession of the ball and scoring three goals in the second-half, the Carolina RailHawks were unable to secure three points and lost 4-3 in a back-and-forth thriller.

Under the leadership of Colin Clarke the RailHawks are 4W-1T-4L against the Eddies and 4W-0T-L at WakeMed Soccer Park.

FC Edmonton had three difficult matches over the past two weeks against league leaders San Antonio Scorpions (W, 3-1), 2013 Soccer Bowl Champions New York Cosmos (T, 0-0) and 2014 Spring Season Champions Minnesota United FC (L, 3-2).

Now the RailHawks are looking to rebound from their loss to the Rowdies last weekend and start a new home winning streak.
