In their first preseason game of 2013, the Atlanta Silverbacks topped the University of North Georgia, 5-0, at Atlanta Silverbacks Park on Thursday. The Silverbacks lineup was entirely made up of trialists, as head coach Brian Haynes tries to fill out the roster for the upcoming NASL season.
The two sides played three 30-minute periods, with both teams fielding different lineups each time. The Silverbacks grabbed a pair of goals in the first period, a goal in the second, and another pair in the third. The Silverbacks controlled the possession throughout the entire 90 minutes, and created a significant number of quality scoring chances.
The team's next preseason test comes on Saturday when they host Georgia State University at 2 p.m. at Atlanta Silverbacks Park. Admission is free to the public.
