Foxes Sweep Cougars

The Foxes may have traveled light to Provo Utah this past Saturday, but they did it with vigilance as they thwarted the BYU Cougars hopes of producing their first home win of the season on the return leg of their two game inter-conference series with the club.Having only two subs available by game time, and a few key starters missing, Real Colorado looked troubled for the first 10 minutes of the match.

More so, when the center official called for a penalty for some light contact at the edge of the box until Miguel Rosales stepped up and saved the initial shot and then some help in the clearance from his defense. Still the Cougars would go into the locker rooms up 1-0 at the half courtesy of a goal from Jace Green in the 34th minute.Second half showed a little more possession by both clubs until the 65th minute when Aaron Skipworth broke free of a tackle and then slotted ball cleanly toward the run Alex Tancozi who buried it far post to bring the match level again.

Three minutes, last weeks Player of the Week, Oliver Gore, was pulled down inside the box by a BYU defender. The official’s whistle blew and all looked certain he would point to the spot, but instead ruled an offensive foul and awarded the Cougars with the kick instead.Undaunted and looking more dangerous, the Foxes continued their runs until John Rehl found Gore unmarked on a cross into the box. Ollie would then side step a defender and place the ball far post for the lead in 76th minute of the match. BYU would then poor on the pressure for the remainder of the match, but Rosales stood steady in goal.

The Cougars final shot of the match in extra time saw Rosales make a save and a quick counter with a punt to a waiting Gore just over midfield. Desperation had BYU keeper some 35 yards off his line and when he had no play on the ball took down Gore and luckily for his sake only walked away with a Yellow for the challenge before the Foxes continued to sportingly keep play in the corner until the final whistle.

The Real Colorado Foxes will continue their road swing throughout the month of June taking on Kansas City, St. Louis and Winnipeg before returning home to face Springfield July 6th and 7th at Shea Stadium.

Foxes Look to Sweep into the Playoffs

The Real Colorado Foxes once again are in the hot and heavy into hunt for USL Premier Development League playoffs and possibly a division title. To qualify the Foxes need only to beat Des Moines Menace (7-1-2) this Saturday or walk away with 4 points in their final 4 matches. To win the division, while still mathematically possible, would require Real Colorado to run the table while Thunder Bay Chill (11-0-1) drops their final two matches at home.

But first the Foxes must look to sweep the season series with the Springfield Demize (3-3-6) tonight in Missouri for their home finale. Besides the need to impress their hometown fans, the wounds are more than likely still fresh in the minds of the Demize having dropping back-to-back games 2-0, 2-1 respectively to the Foxes last Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Saturday’s match saw the Foxes in control with Aaron Skipworth lighting up the scoreboard midway through the first half in the 22nd minute courtesy of a Julian Donaldson assist. Stevie Palma entered the match in the 80th minute for Oliver Gore to cash in a goal with the help of Michael Ogletree in the 90th minute to crush any hope of Springfield to pull back a tie.

Sunday opened up with a 30 minute lightning delay, but that wasn’t the end of the strikes. Oliver Gore would notch his 12th goal of the season in the 32nd minute, assisted by Stevie Palma, to regain the league lead for most goals scored. However, Springfield was not going down so easy for the second night in a row and immediately responded with a goal from Eric Martin in the 33rd minute. The second half saw Gore get on the scoresheet again with an assist to Armando Dia, who netted the game winner in the 55th minute.

The Real Colorado Foxes will return to Shea Stadium for their final two game home stand of the 2013 regular season against the Kansas City Brass (4-6-1) on July 20th and 21st. Be sure to come out early Saturday and enjoy a concert with rockers Random Hero at approximately 5:30pm included in the $5 for Adults, $3 Youth (Under 18) price of admission for the Foxes at 7:00PM.
