Double Header Weekend in El Paso

by Andres Trujillo

Two Games on deck, rhinos in the crosshairs

The New Mexico Runners head on the road this weekend to take on the Rhinos in a Double Header weekend Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. The Rhinos sit at second in the Midwest Division with a record of 4  wins and 3 losses. New Mexico statistically aren't out of the playoff hunt. A few stars aligning can give the Runners the opportunity they need. Saturday's game kicks off at 7:30 PM MT and Sunday's game is at 2:00 PM at La Frontera Indoor Soccer Facility located at 110 W. Borderland Rd. El Paso, TX 79932.

"Our goal is to fight through a tough weekend ahead. We are looking forward to getting these wins back" Says Head Coach Steve Famiglietta.

New signing: Goalkeeper Dillon Oord. Oord is currently a goalkeeper coach at East Mountain High School and will be playing alongside his brother Colton.

Starting goalkeeper Nate Yeager will unfortunately miss this weekend's trek to El Paso due to his pregnant spouse. Mario Matute will miss this weekend’s games as well as he and his wife are expecting any day now.
