On Saturday night, Bravos de FC Juarez played its best game in its extremely young history en route to their second victory in a row. While the 2-1 final score might not be an indicator (and in soccer it rarely is) of how the local side took Murcielagos de Sinaloa from pillar to post for 90 minutes, it does move the team from the Borderland into a four-way tie for second place with 10 points on the season, just one point away from first.

Both goals for FC Juarez came from forward for Sebastian Maz in the 20th and 40th minutes.

After the game, head coach for FC Juarez, Sergio Orduna commented, “Obviously we continued to improve. However, we still needed to be more thorough in our performance especially in putting the ball in the back of the net. The mistakes we make I still consider them to be infantile. That alone is unacceptable considering the caliber of players that we have especially with experience that they possess.”

Bravos will now have and extra week to prepare as will the rest of the league for their seventh game of the season in San Luis, due to the being a break in soccer play around the world to because of official FIFA match dates (Sept. 4 and 8).
