Corpus Christi FC got back to winning ways after securing all three points on the long haul away trip to Mississippi, as they registered their best-ever season victory in the 6-3 demolition over Mississippi Brilla.
With the four goals in 10 minutes in the first half putting the Sharks back to the top of the Mid South Division against Brilla, and with this game against the Cavalry taking place just nine days after the defeat in Bryan, this game for CCFC has now become an enticing battle between the top two, and a must not lose in the race for the playoffs.
