There was a respectable crowd of 3,373 fans on hand to witness it, but a good number of Battery supporters likely missed Saturday’s 3-0 win over the high-scoring LA Galaxy II in favor of the marquee World Cup matchup between England and Italy.
Those who didn’t make it out to Blackbaud Stadium missed the most complete and dominating Battery performance of 2014.
Here’s the game — and pre-game, and post-game — in photos. The game photos are mine, and the fan gallery photos are mostly by my wife, Janet Edens Conover. Plus, just for the fun of it, there’s a special bonus gallery for the Colin Falvey fans out there.
Game Wrap on Monday, and here’s my game story from last night, in case you missed it.

FACES OF FALVEY
Battery Captain Colin Falvey gave his men a pep talk after pre-game warm-ups. If you’re not motivated after looking at these shots, you probably need a defibrillator.
