Corpus Christi FC began their USL League Two campaign with a magnificent victory over AHFC Royals on Friday, May 17. This performance included a second consecutive hat-trick from star man Ollie Wright, and fantastically taken goals from Noah Wagner and Stefan Lukic, as Corpus won 5-2.
Up next for the Sharks is the first of three consecutive away trips, the first being the journey to Houston FC, Monday, May 20.
So off the back such a great opening day performance, what do we need to know for the next game?

A WORD FROM THE BOSS
Houston FC is a team that competes every single minute of the game. We have contrasting styles, but they are very dangerous if give the chance.
I expect a CCFC team that is hungry and aggressive and that displays attacking soccer. We have scored 11 goals in two games, so our trust is growing.
