GK Logan Ketterer, Locomotive FC Enter Inaugural eUSL Cup: Rocket League Edition

Even though the USL Championship is temporarily suspended, the competitive spirit of the league and Locomotive FC Goalkeeper Logan Ketterer lives on as the Locomotive man-between-the-pipes enters the inaugural USL eCup Rocket League Edition on behalf of the El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund.

“I’m a super competitive person, so being able to still compete and do something is awesome,” Ketterer said about joining the tournament. “I guess we can see if my goalie skills will translate to Rocket League.”

Kicking off Tuesday, March 31, 32 teams from USL Championship and USL League One will compete against one another in the virtual arena of Rocket League. The World Cup style tournament is divided into a best-of-three group stage contests and best-of-five knockout rounds. The tournament will come to a head in late April with a best-of-seven Final to determine a clear winner of the USL Rocket League.

Teams were drawn in their respective groups on Wednesday, seeing Locomotive FC draw into Group 4 alongside Championship sides San Antonio FC, Rio Grande Valley FC and Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC.

“I think it’s great that the league is looking to create a tournament and try new things,” Ketterer exclaimed. “This is a difficult situation for everyone and it’s fantastic that they are willing and able to go above and beyond to try to make things happen and keep the buzz of the USL season going.”

Each team will be playing for a charity of their choosing, with Ketterer representing the El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund. Part of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, the EPFB Workers Fund supports those in the community who work in the service industry directly.

Throughout the tournament, links will be provided on each team’s Twitch stream, providing fans and spectators an opportunity to support the charities and the players.

“I’m extremely excited to be representing El Paso Locomotive FC in this tournament,” the young goalkeeper concluded. “Hopefully we can support some charities along the way and have a great time, while we still all practice safe and responsible health habits by staying at home.”

Each of Logan Ketterer’s matches will be streamed live on Twitch. Follow @eplocomotivefc on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for more information.

Locomotive open season with a draw against Orange County SC

Orange County, CA – El Paso Locomotive FC kicked off its sophomore season in USL Championship, playing to a scoreless draw against Orange County SC on the road.

“I thought we could’ve been better on the ball particularly in their half of the field,” said Head Coach Mark Lowry. “We turned it over a little bit too much but I think that’s part of the first game of the season, there’s a little bit of nerves there’s rustyness, you know these are things that will easily kind of work themselves out after 4 or 5 games, but I thought all in all we deserve the point. We created good chances they had a couple of good chances, so I thought it was a good game of football”.

The pendulum swung through the first half with Locomotive FC and OCSC trading possession and chances for shots towards goal.

El Paso was able to find the back of the net in the 21st minute through midfielder Nick Ross, but the goal was called back as the assistant ref raised his flag for offsides.

The Locos turned up the heat in the second half, applying consistent pressure in the final third that led to a strong chance from forward Marios Lomis through a pivoting shot in close range that squared the OC goalkeeper.

Locomotive FC held the attacking pressure through the final moments, however Orange County had the answers to keep the scoreline level, leaving the two sides to split the points in the 2020 Regular-Season Opener.

El Paso Locomotive FC returns to action at Southwest University Park against Portland Timbers 2 on Saturday, March 14th. Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m. MST. Tickets are available for purchase now onlne  or by calling 915-235-GOAL.

Locomotive FC travels to Orange County SC for 2020 Opener

El Paso Locomotive travels to Orange County, California for the first game the 2020 season, on Friday night at 8 p.m. MT. 

Locomotive and Orange County split their games last year, with each team winning 2-0 at home.

Last year on March 30, Locomotive FC earned their first win in club history against Orange County SC.  These two teams finished within four points of one another in the final standings in 2019, with Orange County SC and Locomotive finishing fifth and sixth place respectively, both avoiding the play in round.

In the 2019 playoffs, Orange County fell to eventual champions, Real Monarchs SLC, in a crushing 6-2 defeat. After beating Fresno FC 3-2 and cruising past Sacramento Republic FC 3-0 in front of a raucous El Paso crowd, Locomotive also faced Real Monarchs SLC in the playoffs, resulting in a heartbreaking 1-2 loss in the Western Conference Finals.

Starting the 2020 season, both teams have a player suspended due to red card infractions from 2019, Locomotive local star Omar Salgado and Orange County Forward Harry Forrester. Neither will be available for selection for the match.

Of the five new Locomotive players for 2020, three have already had a major offensive impact. Marios Lomis, a clinical striker from the Netherlands, previously played in the Championship with NCFC in the Eastern Conference and has shown promise in the offseason.

Distel Zola, a French born midfielder who played his career in France, promises to be another attacking weapon for Coach Mark Lowry.  Dylan Mares will be pulling the strings in midfield as a creative and attacking option who scored multiple goals during preseason under a TBA moniker until he was announced this Monday.

With the recent re-signing of Forward Aaron Gomez and Defender Mechack Jerome returning from an Achilles tear to secure the backline, Locomotive appears poised to hit the ground running in California.

The teams will meet again in El Paso on Saturday, August 22nd in Southwest University Park in a match that could have major playoff seeding implications.

Locomotive FC announces addition of Attacking Midfielder Dylan Mares

Tuesday morning, officials with El Paso Locomotive announced the addition of another offensive threat to the roster in attacking midfielder Dylan Mares, pending league and federation approval. 

Dylan comes to El Paso after spending three years with perennial NPSL powerhouse Miami FC where he played three seasons.  Before that, he spent four seasons with Indy Eleven in both the NASL and the USL where he was a constant member of the starting squad.

Dylan played collegiate ball at Louisville for three seasons before transferring to one of the most decorated men’s programs in the country, Indiana University.

“Dylan has developed a reputation as being one of the most creative players outside of MLS. At Indy Eleven and Miami FC, his goal record and chance creation was high for a midfielder and he has been a player I have admired for a long time. We are grateful and excited to have the opportunity to bring him to El Paso and I know he will be another great addition to the team,” said Mark Lowry about the latest signing.

Dylan joins Marios Lomis, Distel Zola, Fabrice Fokobo, and Saeed Robinson as new additions to Mark Lowry’s squad.  He joins 17 returning players from the 2019 campaign as Locomotive looks to repeat their success in reaching the Western Conference Finals before losing to Real Monarchs 2-1 in extra time.

Locomotive closes preseason with 3-3 tie vs Phoenix Rising FC

El Paso Locomotive completed their 2020 preseason with a 3-3 draw after 90 minutes. The team faced 2019 USL regular season points champion and Western Conference rivals, Phoenix Rising FC, in an exciting match in Tucson.

El Paso’s newest offensive star, who will be announced on Monday morning, scored the first two goals of the contest to put Locomotive up 2-0.

The second goal was described by Head Coach Mark Lowry as “an absolute rocket from 20 yards out that found the top corner.”

After halftime and multiple Locomotive substitutions, Rising clawed their way back into the game after converting a penalty to bring the score to 2-1.

Local product and Bravos loanee, Aaron Gomez, scored the final goal of the match for El Paso to extend the lead to 3-1 before Phoenix found two late goals to see the match end in a draw.

“After a productive preseason that saw the boys work hard, this is a great result to see the team into the first week of the regular season and we will be ready to compete on March 14th in front of our amazing fans at Southwest University Park,” remarked Head Coach Mark Lowry.

Locomotive fall to New Mexico United in last home preseason match of 2020

El Paso Locomotive FC welcomed USL Championship rival New Mexico United to an uncharacteristically warm and sunny February afternoon at the Locomotive Training Complex. 

Both teams were very much in preseason mode and the starting lineup for Locomotive was vastly different than when they played SAFC last week.

New Mexico United took the early lead on the first opportunity of the match when they scored in the 5th minute on an uncharacteristic giveaway in the back by neatly slotting the ball into the net.  United was not content with their lead and late in the first half extended the score to 0-2 with a free kick into the box.

The ball squirted through the mass of players and took an unlucky deflection off Moses Makinde, whose momentum led to an own goal.

After almost a complete lineup change from both clubs, the second half saw the Locos take control of possession and begin to settle into their trademark possession style.

In the fiftieth minute, Omar put a terrific cross into Alexy Bosetti who could not find the back of the net.

Locomotive was not done competing, despite being down 0-3.  Midfielder Omar Salgado got the ball on the left-hand side, beat his man and calmly passed the ball on the turf into the penalty spot and newcomer Distel Zola neatly put the ball away to cut the deficit to 1-3.

Locomotive continued to work with close chances from Alexy Bosetti nearly chipping United’s keeper from 40 yards out and Salgado missing the upper corner by inches.

Head Coach Mark Lowry on the performance commented, “The weather was beautiful and it was a good game of football. We saw some good things from both teams. I thought that both teams played very well and it was a pretty even game with three silly giveaway goals.”

The match ended 1-4 with the team’s focus shifting to their upcoming preseason match against Borderland rival and sister club, FC Juarez, on Wednesday, February 19th.

Locomotive FC Midfielder “Chapa” Herrera returns from Trial with Los Angeles Football Club

Tuesday morning officials with El Paso Locomotive announced that Louis “Chapa” Herrera had returned from a trial with MLS side Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC).

Last year, LAFC finished in first place in the Western Conference.

“I am very proud that Chapa had the opportunity to spend a week with LAFC, who on last season’s form were the best team in MLS. It’s a credit to the work and application that Chapa displayed last season, his growth in his first year as a pro was tremendous. For that to be recognized is fully deserved and a is testament to Chapa and the culture we have created here in El Paso,” said head coach Mark Lowry.

The 23-year-old midfielder appeared for El Paso in 28 matches and netted one goal in his first professional season.

The homegrown talent returned to the Locomotive squad ahead of their preseason match against USL Western Conference club and Copa Tejas rival, San Antonio FC.

Chapa has two goals in two preseason friendlies in 2020.

Locomotive FC Signs Jamaican Midfielder Saeed Robinson

On Wednesday afternoon, El Paso Locomotive FC continued to add depth by signing pacey Jamaican midfielder Saeed Robinson, pending league and federation approval.

“By signing a player like Saeed, we are continuing our mission of bringing top-notch talent to El Paso. Saeed is an out and out offensive threat that can dribble or shoot and he gives us more depth on our roster. Saeed has proven that he can compete at this level and is a player with loads of pace. I am thrilled to have him in the team,” said Head Coach Mark Lowry.

Robinson spent the past two seasons with USL Championship side Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC where he featured 59 times and scored eight goals. Prior to his professional debut, Robinson played his collegiate career with West Texas College and Grand Canyon University.

Robinson is now the 18th rostered player for the 2020 campaign, joining newcomers Distel Zola, Fabrice Fokobo and Marios Lomis.

Fourteen members of the inaugural team have re-signed for the second season, keeping the core of the successful first-year team intact.

‘Chapa’ Herrera back on board for 2020 Locomotive season

El Paso Locomotive FC has re-signed Louis “Chapa” Herrera for the 2020 season, pending league and federation approval.

Chapa joined Locomotive in early January of 2019 after Head Coach Mark Lowry discovered Chapa and saw his professional promise at the highly regarded Alianza de Futbol tournament.

“To see his growth from pre-season to the end of the season was special for us all. He is someone who wants to learn every day and someone who is always asking questions, which is important because that shows his willingness to learn and that he wants to get better. He helped us a lot through the inaugural season and I’m sure he will become even better this year,” said Locomotive midfielder Richie Ryan.

The midfielder made 28 appearances and found himself in the starting lineup 12 times this season. In the away match vs OKC Energy FC he tied the game with his shot that would ultimately be awarded as an own goal.

“Chapa has proved himself to be a hungry and young rising star and was the second local player to sign a professional contract with El Paso Locomotive FC. He is a testament to the high-level of play and talent pool that exists in the Borderland,” team officials added.

Locomotive adds European Experience by signing Sporting Lisbon’s Midfielder Fabrice Fokobo

Tuesday morning, El Paso Locomotive FC officials announced the signing of Cameroonian midfielder, Fabrice Fokobo pending league and federation approval.

“Fabrice is a very versatile player, playing in the 8, 6 or CB position to a very high level. His experience in Europe the past 6 years, at a club of the caliber of Sporting Lisbon, shows the type of professionals we want to bring to El Paso,” said Head Coach Mark Lowry. “His ability and athleticism will strengthen the depth of our midfield and backline. I believe games are won and lost in the midfield, particularly in the USL where most teams are physical and very transitional.”

“We are a team that likes to possess the ball, so having a strong midfield with strength in depth will allow us to control opposition counter-attacks, which historically has been an area where most teams try and capitalize against us. Fabrice will be a key part of this, along with Distel and the returning midfielders to enable us to control each element of the game,” Lowry added.

Fokobo played his youth career with NQSA (Njala Quan Sports Academy) in his home country of Cameroon. His senior career sent him to Portugal where he has spent the past seven years with Sporting Lisbon who compete in the top-flight of the Portuguese league.

He spent stints with various clubs in the Portuguese football system whilst on loan, most recently playing with Real Sport Clube. The 25-year-old midfielder has also represented Cameroon at the U17 level.
