FC Juarez Fall to Third Place After Scoreless Draw
Six matches without a loss -- and the streak continues for the Bravos de FC Juarez. On Saturday night, FC Juarez made it six matches without knowing defeat. The most important thing out of all of this is that the team from the Borderland continues to accumulate points on the season.
Because of the 0-0 tie to Correcaminos (Roadrunners) at Benito Juarez Olympic Stadium the team from the Borderland now has 18 points for the 2015 Apertura season, good enough for third place in the standings, three points behind first place team Lobos BUAP.
Despite keeping the undefeated streak going and accumulating points, the head coach for FC Juarez, Sergio Orduna, was not happy with the result and was perfectly fine with voicing his displeasure.
A frustrated Orduna commented after the game, “From my point of view, this result for us was a bad one. We now have two games at home were we have tied against teams that come here to solely defend and leave with a tie. I think tonight's rainy conditions affected us more than it did them, although that is no excuse. We tried every which way to score, made aggressive substitutions but to no avail unfortunately we couldn't score.”
As for any positive notes to extract from the match on Saturday, Orduna commented on a fact that is very evident as of late, “Our rivals respect this team more and more with each passing week, and they are starting to learn the potential that this team has, hence, when teams come play us at home they come and park the bus in front of their goal. Now we just have to work on forcing teams to open themselves up so we can produce a positive result when they decide to do that.”
Next up for FC Juarez will be an exhibition match against Monarcas Morelia in what will be their El Paso debut on Friday night at Southwest University Park at 7:30 p.m.
