NORFOLK, Va. (June 18, 2019) — Virginia Beach City FC is ready to rebound after suffering their first loss of the season and is set to hit the road to take on FC Frederick this Sat., June 22.

Getting Back on Track

Though Virginia Beach City FC's undefeated season came to an end on Sunday vs. FC Baltimore, the club still holds the lead in the Mid-Atlantic Conference and has a chance to expand on their three-point lead. VB City FC's stout defense should return to form after regular rest. Before Sunday's loss, VB City FC and keeper CJ Coulson had orchestrated four consecutive shutouts in NPSL play.

Back Against the Wall

FC Frederick is fighting for their season. FC Frederick sits at the bottom of the table with just two points, three points behind fourth-place Charlottesville Alliance FC. FC Frederick has the worst goal differential in the conference at minus-11 and has scored just two goals all season.

VB City FC has already defeated FC Frederick once this season, winning at home on June 2 by a score of 4-0. Since then, FC Frederick has lost and tied. 

Key Matchup

VB City FC's backline vs. FC Frederick's forwards — Virginia Beach City FC's defense struggled vs. FC Baltimore, but the club was playing their second match in three days. With proper rest, VB City FC's backline should play much better and keep Coulson clean. Despite allowing three goals on Sunday, Coulson still registered five saves.

Virginia Beach City FC returns to Powhatan Field on Sat. June 29 at 7 p.m. vs. Northern Virginia United. Be sure to buy your tickets now to see VB City FC make their playoff run.
