Zeiko Lewis Scores For Charleston Battery

May 26, 2019

Zeiko Lewis scored for his Charleston Battery team as they played to a 1-1 draw with Atlanta United 2 this weekend, with the Bermudian curling the ball into the goal from a corner, which the match commentator called a “fantastic corner.”

The club’s match report said, “Atlanta United 2 opened the scoring in the 71st minute through midfielder Laurent Kissiedou. With his back to goal, Kissiedou turned on a shot from six yards out to beat Kuzminsky at the right post.

Match highlights, fast forward to 1.55 to see Lewis’ goal:

“Kuzminsky kept things close through the second half making a number of crucial saves to keep the Battery within striking distance. Kuzminsky’s hard work would be rewarded with an equalizing goal later in the half.

“Lewis would level things eight minutes later, finding the back of the net from a corner. Lewis whipped in a hard cross to the top right corner of the goal and forced Moore into making a play on the ball. The  Atlanta United 2 keeper got his fingertips to the ball but didn’t have enough to tip the ball over the goal.”

“I’ve scored goals like that before,” said Lewis. “Our game plan was to challenge the goalkeeper from our corners and that’s what I tried to do. We put two guys on the near post in front of him and it gave him trouble.”

The goal scored by Lewis, who also plays for Bermuda internationally, came on the same night the Bermuda football team defeated a team from Sao Miguel, Azores by a score of 2-1 at the National Sports Centre.
