It was a strong first few months of professional life for South Georgia Tormenta FC earlier this year, led by a stellar defensive unit that put the team in the upper echelon of the new USL League One. Then things took a turn. What was once just a question of getting home field advantage come October has turned into whether or not playoffs are attainable at all. The attack is toothless, the defense has gone south, and each lost opportunity at points brings more and more pressure for results. What happened?
Things began to spiral in early July, when Tormenta was defeated on home soil for the first time all season.
