BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Birmingham Legion FC scored in the 90th minute and moved its unbeaten streak to six-straight matches with a 1-0 win over Memphis 901 FC Saturday night in Birmingham, Ala.

The match continued a tough stretch on the 901 FC schedule, as the club has played seven-straight games against teams in the playoff picture at the time they faced Memphis. Memphis has earned a point in eight of its last 14 matches.

Memphis (4-12-7, 19 pts) ran into a buzzsaw Birmingham (8-10-5, 29 pts) team that is one of only two teams in the USL Championship Eastern Conference that has not lost in its last five matches.
