Kiesewetter strikes again as Locomotive rule the Galaxy 3-0; Salgado snags 2nd goal of season

Saturday night, El Paso Locomotive FC steamrolled LA Galaxy II, extending unbeaten streak to eight and moving into a four-way tie for second place in the West.

Jerome Kiesewetter grabbed his fourth brace of the season and his ninth goal, leading El Paso to a dominating 3-0 victory.

Hometown hero Omar Salgado grabbed his second goal of the season and his first in front of the home crowd to seal the three points at home.

“I want the guys to enjoy the victory. You always have to enjoy winning. We work so hard, when you win, you ought to be able to enjoy it but also not get carried away. We have standards set that we try to achieve every game. Eight games unbeaten is great, but we want more. That’s the culture we have created here. There is a group of guys there that want to be the best, that want to put something beautiful on the field every time they step out there,” said Coach Mark Lowry.

Kiesewetter opened things up at Southwest University Park with a one-touch shot that beat the keeper near post.

The former USMNT striker scored his eighth and ninth goal in the last six matches and got the home crowd electric, both goals coming with the assist from James Kiffe.

Kiesewetter is one goal shy of the top scorer in the league, whilst playing four games fewer than the leader. Kiesewetter continues to impress in Locomotive colors.

Salgado got his second goal of the season in the waning minutes of the match after receiving the ball in open space near the top of LA’s box.

With a single touch towards goal, he sent a booming ground shot into the back of the net, simultaneously causing the crowd to celebrate in unison and fervor.

El Paso Locomotive FC plays their next match at home on Saturday, June 22nd against Las Vegas Lights. Season Ticket Memberships, Group Tickets, and Individual Match Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 915-235-GOAL!
