Miami FC beats AC St. Louis. Abe Thompson scores hat trick

It was an exciting game at Lockhart Stadium in Ft Lauderdale last night as Miami FC defeated AC St. Louis 4-2. This result eliminates St Louis from the playoffs.

The highlight of the match was Abe Thompson's natural hat trick! Abe has been inspired as of late and has undoubtedly found his form becoming the team's scoring leader with 9 goals. His absence was felt in the 2nd half when he was substituted out of the game, Miami FC lost its main attacking threat and the control of the ball. St Louis got on the scoring card with a goal by Stisser but this was countered by a Miami goal from Le Petit. Shortly after Stisser scored his 2nd of the match but it proved not enough as Miami FC held on for the victory.
