Early season showdown earns Vaqueros honor
FORT WORTH _ The Vaqueros stellar start to the year coupled with Midland-Odessa FC’s dominance at home sets up an early season showdown with national significance.
The NPSL selected Saturday’s match featuring Fort Worth (3-0, 9 points) at Midland (2-0, 6 points) as the National Game of the Week.
“Growing up in Odessa, I know all too well the challenges of playing out there from the piercing West Texas wind to the taxing road trip,” Vaqueros general manager Tobias Xavier Lopez said. “Midland-Odessa FC joined the NPSL this year and wasted no time establishing Grande Communications Stadium as a stronghold.”
Midland-Odessa FC won both matches at home this season and will enjoy homefield yet again on Saturday.
Fort Worth supporters can tune in at 7:30 p.m. to the live stream of the match HERE
