There’s not much a team can “prove” against against a team like Chattanooga FC, who plays in NISA (you get extra points if you know the acronym), but Atlanta United should take credit for not giving up their focus and showing themselves. The dominant team from the first minute of the match.
On an individual level, it may only be good for Dom Dwyer’s confidence to see the ball hit the net twice on two neat ends. The same is true of Marcelino Moreno, who scored a penalty in the second half after being denied a penalty in a league match last weekend.
Also, more minutes for Luis Araujo (and a great goal) and Emerson Hyndmann, and no new injuries. All good news.
