Tormenta FC closed out its first professional season tonight with a dominating performance in Erk Russell Park, defeating Greenville Triumph SC 3-1. With the win, Tormenta ended its winless streak, keeping Greenville from securing home field advantage for the USL League One playoffs.

Tormenta kicked off its chances in the 9th minute with a shot by Alex Morrell, but it was saved by Greenville's Dallas Jaye.

Carlos Gomez gave Greenville the lead in the 18th minute with a goal assisted by Cameron Saul. Less than ten minutes after, Jad Arslan scored his first professional goal and tied up the match after Dallas Jaye mishandled the ball, creating an opportune moment to score. In the 40th minute, Arslan capitalized off yet another mistake by Jaye and scored a brace.

Conner Antley then notched his sixth goal of the season after catching Greenville's backline off-guard, bringing the final score to 3-1.

After a whirlwind season for its first professional year, Tormenta FC ended on a bright note tonight, ready to come back in 2020, fighting for a playoff spot and a USL League One trophy next time around.
