Battalion Fall to East Bay FC At Home

With much anticipation, the East Bay FC Stompers traveled approximately 500 miles to visit fellow 2016 NPSL playoff contender this past weekend. This match, the fourth in a lineup of fall exhibitions, proved to be the toughest battle yet for the Battalion. Donning their white kits, NCB found themselves down two goals in the first half and were never able to recover. Despite their best efforts to change the course of the game, the final score was 2-5 in favor of the visiting Easy Bay FC Stompers. Battalion looked fresh in the opening minutes of the game, controlling possession and [...]

Battalion Look To Get Back on Track

NC Battalion opened up the third match of their fall campaign back at Del Norte Stadium to face US Open Cup challenger Orange County FC on Sunday. After a tough loss in last week’s charity exhibition match to the San Diego Sockers, Battalion was looking to get back on track. The visiting OCFC, however, had other plans in mind. In the early minutes of the match, OCFC center forward Castro slipped past his markers and took a menacing shot on goalkeeper James Stroud. Stroud was up to the task and stretched a big left hand to save the shot. From [...]

Battalion and Sockers Team Up For Charity

On an unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon, the San Diego Sockers took their play outdoors for some fresh air and a match against the Battalion's fall squad. North County Battalion, who kept a clean sheet last weekend at Del Norte Stadium, fell to the Sockers 1-3 in its second match of the fall development season. Defender Rory Sutherland scored his first goal for Battalion after joining the squad earlier this year. Normally, Rory is in the backfield protecting opposing teams from getting past the defense. When Battalion has a corner kick, the 6'2" San Diego native, is right there and ready [...]

Get To Know Armand

Last weekend, we kicked off our fall development season with a win versus Temecula FC. One of the newest members of the Battalion Squad is Armand Bagramyan. Let's get to know Armand! You've mentioned that David Villa, Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho inspire you, can you talk a bit about how these players influence you? I grew up watching David Villa score goals every weekend for a club that wasn't as big as Barcelona and Real Madrid but he would always score against them for years. He proved that he didn't need a big club to become one of the best [...]

Fall Kicks Off With a Win

Under the warm amber glow of the October sun, NC Battalion kicked off their fall development season yesterday at Del Norte High School. When the men in black faced Temecula FC earlier this year in June, their dominance was evident winning decisively against a division rival. On Sunday, it was more of the same as they cruised to a 5-0 victory. "Yesterday's match was a great way to kick-off the fall season. We were able to see some of our new players make tremendous contributions, as well as our results," said Coach Sergio Palafox. Battalion went into halftime up 1-0 [...]

An Open Letter To Our Battalion Family

Dear Battalion Family: Time flies. Time flies when you’re having fun. Time flies when you’re working hard. Time flies when you’re reliving the past. Time flies when you’re planning for the future. The flight of time, however, is not a good excuse for not keeping in touch with friends or family. We haven’t really kept up with our NC Battalion family while we’ve been having fun, reliving the past, working hard, or planning for the future. Rest assured though, we’ve been doing all of that and more. Since our season ended up in Sonoma, we’ve taken some time off to [...]
