SACRAMENTO, CA (KTSM) – El Paso Locomotive FC defeated Sacramento Republic FC 2-1 on the road and they did so in dramatic fashion.
The match began with two weather delays that shifted the momentum and saw the Locos go down a goal early in the match, but the rain wasn’t enough to stop this train.
El Paso’s first goal of the night came from defender Bryam Rebellon who finished a deflected ball off a Sacramento defender. Rebellon hit a bouncing volley on his first touch and sent the ball booming into the back of the net, notching his second goal of the season.
The match remained tied until stoppage time. Aaron Gomez found the back of the net for the third time in four matches to give El Paso the three-point win.
With the win, Locomotive sits in ninth place with just three points separating them from fifth place. The top 10 teams in the Western Conference qualify for the playoffs.
El Paso Locomotive FC plays their next match at home on Wednesday, October 2nd against Fresno FC.
