Sandy, UT (August 2, 2019) – The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC lost 1-0 on a late goal to the Real Monarchs SLC on Saturday night.
The best chances of the first half both fell to the foot of the Monarchs. Luis Palma fired a curved shot but Abraham Rodriguez equaled the effort with a save to push the ball over the crossbar. Luis Arriaga's shot also came back off the crossbar to keep the sides level going into the half. The hosts would find a late game-winner when Julian Vazquez's cross found the head of Damian German who made no mistake of the header from close range four minutes from full time for Vazquez's first professional goal.
