Silverbacks Women Show No Signs of Slowing Down - By Taylor Peyton
Unless your schedule has forbidden you from getting to a game, or you’re just living under a rock’ you know the Silverbacks have a wonderful women’s team this season. The girls in Red and Black have beaten every opponent they have faced so far, making them a perfect 4-0-0 with 12 points at the top of the Southeast Conference of the WPSL. Their highest scoring game was a 4-0 win over Chattanooga FC at Silverbacks Park to start the season. Between their dominate performance against Chattanooga and their 3-1 win over Gulf Coast Texans (who are actually from Florida, as weird as that sounds) they have succeeded in turning Silverbacks Park into a fortress. Along with winning both games they’ve played at Silverbacks park they have only conceded one goal while playing at home, and scoring 7. Both of their away matches have been played in Tennessee. After thumping Chattanooga the weekend before, they traveled to Nashville and beat the Wolves 1-0 for their second consecutive clean sheet; they have not kept another clean since those two games but they have still been very solid defensively.
