The Miami FC 2 got back on track Wednesday night, defeating Palm Beach United 4-1 at Bobcat Field at St. Thomas University.

Palm Beach United isn’t generally considered in the top echelon of the National Premier Soccer League’s Sunshine Conference. However, they’ve managed two wins against teams who are in that top tier (Miami United and Jacksonville Armada). For the second time this season, through, Miami FC 2 was able to handle the matchup with ease.

We’ve said a time or two that the NPSL Sunshine Conference schedule is funky. It’s rare for a team in any sport to go six weeks without playing a game at home.

Palm Beach United come to town hoping to close the door on any possible comeback for MFC2.

Colombia and Venezuela last played each other in World Cup Qualifying on Aug. 31, 2017 (a 0-0 draw). The two squads last played in a friendly on Sept. 3, 2010 (Colombia won, 2-0).
