It Was No "Battle" Against Old Monarchs

Week 18 Saints 7 Battle 2 - A week removed from spanking Burud Town, the men in green continued their trek against a future playoff opponent. "We came into this match with the goal of sending a clear message. If this is a playoff preview, its going to be game on!!" said the Saints coach. Once the first whistle blew Gateway United took control and built up a sizeable lead further humiliating the Battle, who must have been jet lagged. "To be honest we were expecting a better performance from a club on a 7 game winning streak. I guess they are not a good as we thought" said Landon Donovan. The Saints completed there Founders Cup games for the season finishing 3W-2L-1T. The results of the final Founders Cup games will determine if that's enough to claim the cup. So what's in store for next week. Well now Gateway United will take the show to face Barium Cup rivals, Alliance for the 2nd leg. "Time to tame the lion cubs again" said Kenny Cooper.
