El Paso Locomotive FC Drops Points to Rio Grande Valley

September 8, 2022 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - El Paso Locomotive FC News Release

El Paso Locomotive FC (11-12-7, 40 points, West-6) couldn't find the result at home against Rio Grande Valley Toros FC. El Paso came into the match after a road win against rivals New Mexico United on Friday September 2 and had a quick turnaround to play at home in front of an electric El Paso crowd. Toros found two late goals in the second half to end the contest 2-0.

Locomotive stuck to their game plan and implemented a highly possessive style of play, out possessing the visiting team 63.1 to 36.9 percent. El Paso had 58 final third entries but were unable to capitalize on their chances in the opposing team's defensive end. Locomotive go on the road for their next two matches and close the regular season with back-to-back home matches on October 5 against Colorado Springs and on October 8 against Orange County SC.

Midfielder Chris Garcia made his home debut for Locomotive tonight. The El Paso native entered the match in the 70 minute and is currently on loan for the remainder of the 2022 season from MLS side Real Salt Lake. "It felt good, first home game I have had [with El Paso]. It's a beautiful team, great teammates and the crowd is always amazing. The passion they have is amazing. Being back home is the greatest thing." Commented Garcia.

UP NEXT: El Paso Locomotive travels to the golden state to face LA Galaxy II on Sunday September 18, with kickoff slated for 6:00 p.m.
