Storm Watch, Week 8: Tormenta FC at Forward Madison

Down, but never out. If any phrase can relate how this Tormenta team responds to setbacks, it’s this. Four times this season, South Georgia Tormenta FC has found itself down to an opponent, and only once did they fail to pick up any points from the match. The comeback mentality was on full display last Sunday in Statesboro, as Tormenta played Toronto FC II for the first time this year.

Thunderstorms throughout the weekend turned out to be good omens for the home team with both Tormenta and Tormenta 2 collecting all three points from their matches. Twomenta, flying high after their 3-0 rout of the Chattanooga Red Wolves in Open Cup play, carried their performance into their regular season opener against Peachtree City.
