Atlanta Silverbacks (NPSL) 4, SC United Bantams (PDL) 1
Playing at home, Atlanta took early advantage when Abraham Lansana converted on a brilliant opportunity in the fourth minute. The NPSL side increased its lead when Belize international Deon MacCauley put back a rebound in the 20th, taking the home side into the break with a comfortable 2-0 advantage. MacCauley added his second on the other side of halftime, but SC United Bantams pulled back within two when Leandro Brown converted a 79th minute penalty. The PDL side’s hopes were dashed two minutes later when Thomas Hunter restored the three-goal lead, sending the Silverbacks on to a Second Round home date with the USL’s Charleston Battery.
