For Atlas, the post-season continues, albeit on the national stage. They tackle crack Croatian side RWB Adria of Chicago in the USASA Final Four July 19 in San Antonio. If victorious, the Greeks will clash with the Lazio FC — ASC New Stars winner for the U.S. Men’s Amateur Cup July 20.
Should Megaloudis, Atlas’ free scoring forward, maintain his hot streak, the U.S. amateur Cup could well be on its way back to the CSL two years after Pancyprian Freedom last bagged the trophy.
The one-time Red Bull has seven goals from two games thus far in the USASA competition, four of them in the 5-1 rout of Italian American SC in the Region 1 Cup final in Horsham, Penn., last month.
Overall, “Mega” has scored 32 goals in all competitions in 2012-2013 action.
Atlas, meanwhile, are inviting fans to travel with the team to Texas for the Final Four. Seats are available on the plane for $398, departing 6:30 a.m., July 18 from LaGuardia Airport and returning Monday, July 22.
For hotel accommodation, there’s a group rate of $109 plus taxes for July 8-21 and $119 plus taxes for July 21-22. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations.
