New Orleans, LA (May 8th) – The 6th edition of the Gulf Coast Premier League kicked off this weekend with Crescent City FC traveling to the Florida Panhandle to take on Pensacola FC to start their 2022 campaign. Both clubs met in 2021 in New Orleans where the home crowd left with a pleased 4-2 victory.

On a beautiful Saturday night in Pensacola CCFC would come into the game having yet to find the back of the net, failing to do so in their first two friendlies to start the season.

“We had a rough go of it last week” said Head Coach, Matt Millet. “Finding our rhythm going forward has been our biggest challenge. We needed to improve in this area for sure.”

The game kicked off with both teams getting acclimated with each other, keeping the game mostly in the middle of the park. After settling in, Pensacola FC started gaining ground, putting CCFC keeper, Jose Santos Jr., to the test. The New Orleans native did his part keeping the home team at bay with two key saves in the 20th and 26th minute. One being an acrobatic display reaching the corner just in time. The 30th minute would see the home team catch CCFC sleeping on a counter attack and put the Florida club up 1-0.
