March 8, 2020

Bermuda’s Zeiko Lewis scored for Charleston Battery as they defeated Atlanta United 2 1-0 in a USL Championship match today [March 8].

The club’s match report said, “Charleston Battery opened the 2020 USL Championship season with a 1-0 win over Atlanta United 2 on Sunday afternoon.

“It was a quick start for Charleston, who threatened Atlanta’s goal thirty seconds into the match. Zeiko Lewis played a brilliant ball in towards Dante Marini, who was inches away from latching on to the pass and taking a quick touch around the keeper for what would have been a tap into an empty net. ATLUTD2 responded with a chance of their own three minutes later. Amir Bashti picked out Jack Gurr with a perfect through ball that split Charleston’s backline, but Gurr’s shot went wide of the left post.

“Despite early chances on both ends, Atlanta and Charleston played to a scoreless opening half, going into the locker room 0-0. Charleston looked the more dangerous side in the first forty-five minutes, controlling possession and finishing better chances. It didn’t take long for Charleston’s quality to show through with Lewis continuing to look dangerous going forward. Lewis forced a penalty call in the 62nd minute beating an ATLUTD2 defender down the right-wing and crossing the ball into the box where it hit the hand of an ATLUTD2 defender.

“Lewis would step up and convert on the penalty giving Charleston a one-goal advantage, a lead they would hold through the final whistle. Lewis, who scored eight goals for the Battery last season, looked confident throughout and should continue to feature as Charleston’s focal point of attack.

Charleston’s next game will see them takes on Birmingham Legion on Sunday, March 15th.
