June 05, 1993|By From Staff Reports

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The Baltimore Bays had a less-than-memorable first encounter with the Charleston Battery last night, dropping a 2-0 decision in a United States Interregional Soccer League game.

Midfielder Kerry Briston gave Charleston a 1-0 lead five minutes into the game, scoring from 18 yards out when his shot deflected off the right post. At the 35-minute mark, forward Mario Lone scored on a cross pass from eight yards out to make it 2-0, Charleston.

Second-place Charleston (5-1) outshot fifth-place Baltimore (2-6), 14-11, and Bays goalie Zack Thornton made five saves.

The Spirit's road mark fell to 1-4, their sole victory a 3-2 win over Richmond last Friday. The Bays will have a chance to avenge last night's loss when Charleston visits on June 20.
