The Georgia Revolution have taken over first place in the Southeast Conference and can assert their spot as the conference's top team today.

Defending National Premier Soccer League National Champion and Southeast Conference Champion Jacksonville United come to the RYSA Soccerplex today to take on the Revs, in a battle of second-year franchises at 7:30 p.m.

The Revs defeated the United 2-1 in the teams' first meeting of the season on May 19 in Jacksonville. A victory today would further cement Georgia atop the conference standing with three games remaining before the conference playoffs beginning July 13.

Georgia moved into first place after a 4-0 win over Myrtle Beach FC July 16. The victory was also significant in the Revs history books as Kwado Poku tallied the first hat trick in the club's two-year history.

It was the third straight win for the revolution, with the previous two coming in dramatic fashion.

On June 2 the Revs got a goal in the 80th minute to edge the Knoxville Force 2-1 at the UT Soccer Stadium.

A week later Georgia goalkeeper Zack Shultze booted a long punt that was collected by Riley Sumpter giving him a breakaway.

Sumpter put the ball in the back of the net in the 93rd minute to give the Revs a 2-1 road victory.
