ATLANTA -

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers' two loanees from FC Dallas played a big role in the club's 1-0 win against the Atlanta Silverbacks on Saturday.

Bradlee Baladez headed in his first goal for the Strikers in the 34th minute, and Richard Sanchez recorded a shutout as the Strikers won their second straight match.

“We scored with the first big chance we had,” said Strikers head coach Günter Kronsteiner. “I think we deserved this game I think we had a lot of chances to close this game.”

Atlanta nearly tied the game when they received a free kick in the 90th minute. Sanchez made the initial save save, then Atlanta's Pablo Cruz's shot off the rebound hit the crossbar.
