La Marcha al Partido: Richmond Kickers


Richmond Kickers, 12-6-8, 44 puntos, 5º puesto en la Conferencia Este


Un juego de USL a la casa de Ciudad de Louisville


Sabado, 10 Septiembre, 7:30 pm


Louisville Slugger Field, 401 E. Main St., Louisville, KY 40202. I don’t think that’s something that needs to be translated into Spanish.


It’s Hispanic Heritage night, in case the previous stuff didn’t give it away. Come to Slugger Field and have a Fiesta with us! A respectful one, not a James Ramsey in a sombrero and serape one. Unless that’s just how you dress, then, don’t change a thing! But if you can’t make it because of the Great Wall of Arizona or something, you can still watch it on YouTube right here:


Taylor Hamblin’s keys to the game are here if you didn’t catch them earlier this week. Richmond’s slowly been climbing up the table and haven’t lost in their last ten matches. The good news is they don’t generally win on the road, having picked up four wins, four draws and five losses in thirteen tries. Yudai Imura is their most dangerous threat, but thirteen players have scored for the Kickers on the season. Richmond’s strength, really, is in their defense, which has only given up 20 goals on the season. Thirteen of those concessions were on the road, however, with fourteen goals scored outside of City Stadium.

Summary: these guys are good, cagey, and experienced, and it’ll take a good performance for City to win the match.
