     Brilla center-back Chakib Hocine has been a dangerous asset on set pieces all season, and he made the most of his opportunity tonight.  Hocine's 88th minute header from a Carlos Garces free kick gave Brilla a 4-3 win over SIMA and thus propelled them into Saturday's Southern Conference Championship Game.  Hocine's aerial ability has now put him on the scoresheet in his last two matches.

     SIMA opened up the scoring in the 29th minute.  Forward Santiago Patino went down in the box, and the referee awarded the Aguilas the penalty kick.  Rafael Santos stepped up and put...

  • For the second match in a row, Mississippi Brilla dropped points to a team who, on paper, they should have beaten.

    After a 0-0 draw with Houston FC on Thursday night, Brilla welcomed Peachtree City MOBA, who sit in last place in the 11-team South Atlantic Division with a record of 2-7-1.

    Brilla had already beaten their guests 2-0 in Peachtree City back on May 20.
