DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. (BATT) -- The Charleston Battery will play the Wilmington Hammerheads in a special pre-season exhibition match this Saturday, March 23 at Blackbaud Stadium, Daniel Island. 

The game is a rematch of the 2012 USL PRO championship game that the Battery won 1-0 earning Charleston its fourth USL championship.

Micheal Azira scored the only goal in the 2012 USL PRO championship assisted by Jose Cuevas as the Battery defeated Wilmington in a closely contested game. 

The Battery had advanced to the championship match via a penalty-shootout win versus the Rochester Rhinos; Wilmington defeated the number one seeded Orlando City Lions in their semifinal.

The Charleston Battery pre-season continues on Tuesday afternoon with a 2:30 PM scrimmage versus the College of Charleston at Patriots Point, Mt Pleasant.
