ATL UTD 2 is coming off a 3-1 loss to Loudoun United last Saturday. Vicente Reyes made 10 saves, a personal best as a professional. Jackson Conway scored on an overhead kick, placing him atop the squad in scoring this season.
The 20-year-old Homegrown forward scored his seventh goal of the season against Loudoun, extending his lead as the most prolific goal-scorer in ATL UTD 2 history.

With seven games left in the campaign, the striker needs only two more goals to claim the single-season scoring record for the team; Aiden McFadden currently holds the record after scoring eight goals in the 2021 season.
