ASHEVILLE, N.C. (June 10, 2019) – Beneath intermittent downpours on Friday night, the Asheville City Blues women’s side dropped a 2-1 WPSL decision to the Charleston Fleet. In the game’s 22nd minute, the Fleet’s Meghan Cavanaugh headed in the first goal off an assist from Maddy Brill Edwards. Mackenzie Crittenburger later had what proved the decisive goal for the Fleet in the game’s 80th minute. 

The Blues kept the late pressure up and four minutes later Camryn Bullock scored on a putback off an initial shot from Megan McCallister to draw the Blues to within a goal. That’s as close as Asheville City would get before time expired as the skies opened up at Memorial. With the loss, the Blues dropped to 3-1-1 in WPSL matches, and 4-2-1 overall. They return home to host FC Carolina Discoveries on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. The last time the two met, Asheville City defeated FC Carolina handily on May 25 with a 5-0 victory on the road in Rock Hill, South Carolina. 

On Saturday, Asheville City’s men’s team had its game against Greenville postponed due to heavy rains. They’re next set to take the field on Tuesday, June 18 when they face Chattanooga FC at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.
