John Clayton - Charlotte, NC
The Charlotte Independence took 3 points in their home match against their fellow southerner from Statesboro, Georgia in a USL league one face-off to hold onto the 3rd spot in the table. The Jacks tested the left side early and often and struck the back of the net in the 8th minute off the left foot of Joel Johnson. Charlotte looked to try to run away with the match with a 3-1 score line at half. But the Tormenta's Pedro Fonseca struck home a penalty in the 65th to set up some furious action to close out the warm uptown evening.
