Otters to return for second half of delayed game

ACSC will resume their June 24 game against the Tri-Cities Otters after a lighting outage on the field forced an early end of the game. 

USL League Two announced last week the remainder of the game will be played on Tuesday, July 12, at 6:30 pm at the John B. Lewis Soccer Complex

John B. Lewis is the Blues' training facility, which is located at 439 Azalea Rd. E, Asheville, NC.

Asheville City SC is proud to announce that the match at JBL will be open to the public, free of charge. Please note that there will not be food or drink available for purchase from our normal match-day partners and vendors. 

“It’s great news that we have managed to find a way to finish the game, we were disappointed with the outcome as goal difference could play a key role as we draw to the end of the regular season,” said head coach Scott Wells.

In the first half of the game, the Blues took a late first-half goal in stoppage when Kemy Amiche broke away from the backline and smashed in his seventh goal of the season giving the Blues a 1-0 lead.

Just after the goal, the Otters had the chance to tie things up with a penalty kick, but the kick sailed high and to the right of the goal.

Just after halftime, the match had a significant delay when the field suffered a power outage. This delay ended up being final as the referees called the game over an hour later.

The men’s team remains in the running for playoffs as the top two teams in the South Central Division will receive playoff nods. One Knoxville has secured their bid to playoffs with ACSC and Tormenta vying for the last spot. A win at JBL will punch the ticket,

The men’s team final game of the season will be July 16 in South Carolina against the SC United Bantams.
