Charlotte FC took a 3-0 victory over the Grenada national team during their first-ever preseason match at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida on Tuesday.
Obertan found the opener on the half-hour mark, nodding home a cross from Spanish midfielder Sergio Ruiz to the far post.
Bender, the highly-touted No. 1 overall pick out of the University of Maryland, scored Charlotte's second in the 71st minute. He's also a Generation adidas signing.
Holcomb then scored CTLFC's final goal of the day in the 89th minute. The 21-year-old forward was Charlotte's second-round SuperDraft selection after a standout collegiate career at Wake Forest.
