It has been a very Happy Birthday for former FirstPoint USA client, and University of West Alabama soccer scholarship recipient, Alex Brown.....
...check out why in this article from uwathletics.com
"Alex Brown celebrated his 20th birthday by scoring the game-winning goal to lift the University of West Alabama men's soccer team to a 2-1 Gulf South Conference overtime victory over Alabama-Huntsville Sunday at Tiger Stadium.
With the victory the Tigers finished the first regular season in school history with a 12-6 overall record, 8-4 in the GSC. UWA will be the second seed in the conference tournament that begins Friday in Pensacola, Fla. UAH wraps up its season 1-15 overall and 0-12 in the GSC.
I am really proud of the lads, UWA head coach Matthew Thorne said. To finish 12-6 in our first year as a program is significant. Now we go into the conference tournament with some momentum.
The game-winner was the third goal of the year for Brown, a freshman from Essex, England. Vitor Gazza scored UWA's first goal, his third of the season, at the 17:17 mark to give the Tigers a 1-0 advantage at the break.
Assisted by Sam Dean and Kyle Simmons, UAH's Mitch Wilson tied the match at 1-1 with a goal at 62:26 to force the extra period. Keeper Kel Markert had 10 saves for the Chargers.
Congratulations & Happy Birthday to Alex - great to see that you are tearing it up in Alabama!....
