Locomotive FC controlled the match start to finish, possessing the ball 61% and completing 91% of their passes.
“If we can get it right and replicate our first half from tonight across 90 minutes, then I don’t see a team that can beat us,” said head coach Mark Lowry. “Every game we are going for three points. At this stage, we want to go all out for the win.”
Bryam Rebellon got the scoring started in the 22nd minute with a goal and El Paso’s defense held strong. Alexy Bosetti, who just recently joined the team, found the back of the net in the 90th minute.
