Man of the Match

AFC Mobile Man of the Match vs. Gulf Coast Texans

The Mobile soccer community came out in full force to watch the inaugural match of AFC Mobile. The hometown team went down early, but an equalizer from Moses Muhubao, strong midfield play from Mat Dazet and Matt Merrill, and a rock solid defensive performance from Guillermo Lumbreras, Jr. gave AFC Mobile a fantastic home debut.
