On Saturday, Atlanta fell to Columbus Crew SC 3-1 in the opening game of the Carolina Challenge Cup. Miguel Almirón scored his first goal of the preseason and Josef Martinez tallied the assist. Pedro Santos and Cristian Martinez scored for Columbus, who added a third via an own goal off a Columbus corner kick.

Minnesota United lost 1-0 to USL side Charleston Battery on Saturday at MUSC Health Stadium. New Charleston signing Ian Svantesson scored the game’s only goal in first-half stoppage time to secure a win for the tournament hosts.
