The El Paso Locomotive FC’s undefeated streak at home came to an end after falling 1-0 to San Antonio FC Saturday night at Southwest University Park.
Both defenses played well in the a scoreless first half, but to start the second half, San Antonio got on the board in the 47th minute when Santiago Patino scored the only goal of the night after an assist from Justin Dhillon.
The Locos had a couple of opportunities to score but they weren’t able to convert giving San Antonio the 1-0 win and the Copa Tejas trophy.
Here’s what Head Coach and Technical Director John Hutchinson had to say after the match:
“We weren’t clinical tonight at all, we were not ruthless enough in the front third. It was a tough game. There were key moments for us that didn’t roll our way tonight. I thought the boys played some good stuff in the second half. They took the power of the game but all the half chances or three-quarter chances we have, we just our finishing at the moment. But the positive of that is we are making the chances.”
With the loss the Locos are now 9-8-6 with 33 points. They will next play on Saturday July 30th as they host Louisville City FC for the first time at Southwest University Park. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
