Story Via El Paso Locomotive

Louisville City FC employed a high press from the starting whistle, putting Locomotive on the defensive throughout the opening 15 minutes. Goalkeeper Evan Newton and Defender Yuma showed their veteran experience of the game, each stopping a dangerous shot from LouCity midfielders Wilson Harris and Brian Ownby. As the match continued, Locomotive countered Louisville City FC with attacking runs down the wings through Midfielders Christiano Francois and Aaron Gomez. The two paired neatly in the 24th minute, with a beautiful cross from Francois meeting a half-volleyed chance from Gomez that forced Louisville ‘keeper Kyle Morton into a massive save.

The Locos continued their momentum into the second half only to see Louisville strike in the 52nd minute to claim the lead. Off a corner piece opportunity, LouCity’s Gonzalez swept a low cross into the far post with one touch. El Paso Locomotive strove to find an equalizer throughout the remainder of the match with attacking runs made by forward Lucho Solignac. While Locomotive rejuvenated in the final 10 minutes to steal a point, the equalizer would not come as the Locos fell 1-0 to the top team in the Eastern Conference.
