Its been an up-and-down season for the Miami FC Blues. Our home team is floating between seventh and ninth place in the United Soccer League standings, and with just seven matches left to play, the Blues time is running out for a playoff spot. Striker Alex Afonso, who has 10 goals to his credit, continues to lead the league in goals scored, but the rest of the team still lags in offense. The Blues hope the acquisition of forward Connally Edozian in a trade with Carolina will provide the boost their floundering offense desperately needs.
The good news is that Miami plays five of its last seven games at home. The team has been stellar on the homefront, allowing only eight goals while scoring 10 of 19 at the friendly confines. The road to a playoff berth begins at home against the tough Charleston Battery at Tropical Park Stadium. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. Get your tickets by calling 305-728-2612 or clicking www.miamifc.com.
