Oakland Roots Review - Loudoun Preview
The SL Crew is back and it was a matter of two points dropped for El Paso Locomotive against Oakland Roots in the USL Championship. A set piece concession was canceled out by a Lucho Solignac goal. Then the moment that the game hinged on was a penalty earned by Josue Aaron Gomez, but subsequently missed off the post. Late chances from Lucho and Sebastian Velasquez weren't enough to get it over the line. Injuries to Velasquez and a potentially lengthy time on the sideline for Emmanuel Sonupe were particularly troubling. Then the Crew look ahead to Loudoun United who started ok but are on a dismal run recently. Locomotive will look to seize on poor form but will have to beware a loan bomb to the MLS2 side.
