Monarchs look to New Addition against New Opposition
Silver Spring, MD – Real Maryland FC Monarchs will host the Charleston Battery tomorrow night Tuesday, April 27th at Richard Montgomery High School for an early season battle. Both teams sit at the top of the table after they both went undefeated over the weekend.
The Charleston Battery have moved into the USL Second Division and have started out strong as predicted posting a victory over the Charlotte Eagles in their Season Opener 3-2. Over the past weekend, the Battery were visited by the Pittsburgh RiverHounds and found that at the end of 90 minutes they had finished in a stalemate 0-0.
The Monarchs opened the 2010 Season at home versus the Riverhounds and found themselves with the same result of 0-0 at the end of the match versus Pittsburgh. Over the weekend, the Monarchs lifted themselves into an early season first place standing with a 2-0 victory over the City Islanders in Harrisburg, PA Saturday night.
New addition of Israel Sesay will be in the starting line up tomorrow night who is a product of the local soccer scene here in Maryland.
Israel Sesay immigrated from his native Sierra Leone with his family at the age of 11, settling in Gaithersburg, MD. Sesay, who goes by the nickname Izzy, played for local club team Bethesda Arsenal before joining U.S. Soccer's Residency Program in August 2006.

He has played in 14 games with the U.S. national Under-17 team since 2006, appearing in 14 games, making ten starts and collecting three assists.
