Central Valley Fuego FC News Release

SETTING THE SCENE:

Central Valley Fuego FC is set to hit the road this weekend for an eagerly anticipated showdown against Lexington SC on Saturday, May 11th. This will be the second match for Central Valley Fuego FC in the USL Jägermeister Cup.


HISTORY VS. LEXINGTON SC

In their short history, Central Valley Fuego FC and Lexington have played only three times, all during the intense battles of the 2023 USL League One season. Each encounter was tightly contested, with Central Valley Fuego FC narrowly winning the first match, Lexington SC responding with a victory on their home turf, and the teams ultimately settling for a draw in their third meeting.

Now, as they prepare to face off once again in the USL Jagermeister Cup, both teams are tied with a win each from the cup’s initial round. This upcoming match holds significant importance, as it will not only determine bragging rights but also pave the way for one team to advance further in the tournament. The stage is set for another thrilling chapter in their evolving rivalry.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

As Central Valley Fuego FC gears up to take on Lexington SC in their upcoming match, all eyes are on Alfredo Midence, who has recently returned from injury and made it back onto the 18-man roster. However, the team will have to contend with several key players who are sidelined due to injury: Jason Ramos, Moe Espinoza, Omar Lemus, Emmanuel Gomez, and Angel Ruelas.

One player to watch out for is Robert Coronado, who has found the back of the net in the team’s previous two games, demonstrating his scoring capabilities and importance to the squad’s attacking threat. As the match unfolds, Midence’s return and Coronado’s form could prove pivotal factors in Central Valley Fuego FC’s quest for victory against Lexington SC.

NEXT MATCH:

Central Valley Fuego FC is set to make their way back home for a game against One Knoxville SC on May 17th, hosted at Fresno State Soccer Stadium. The match kicks off at 7:30pm PT. The theme for this exciting match will be “First Responders Night.”
