ATLANTA -- It was a big night at Atlanta Silverbacks Park Wednesday, when the home team topped the league-leading San Antonio Scorpions.

In front of a crowd of more than 2,300 fans, the Silverbacks beat the Scorpions 3-1.

Willie Hunt and Danny Barrera teamed up and scored the game's first goal just minutes into the first half. Brothers Pedro and Paulo Mendes also got into the action, with Pedro scoring the Silverbacks' second goal.

Although the Scorpions managed to get a single goal in the second half, Barrera rallied to save the day for Atlanta and scored the Silverbacks' third and final goal.

Atlanta's final game of the season will be Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Puerto Rico Islanders. Watch the game live at atlantasilverbacks.com/live; kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
