Fresno, CA (August 24, 2019) – The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC lost on a late goal to Fresno FC on Saturday night at Chukchansi Field.
The first half was cagey which only saw a half-chance for each side as Jordan Burt fired a shot from distance over the crossbar while Abraham Rodriguez was forced into making a comfortable save. Rony Argueta, playing against his former team, found Saeed Robinson who dribbled to the top of the box before firing a shot off the post and into the back of the net to give the Switchbacks the lead in the 63rd minute. But Fresno would equalize just five minutes later through Hiroki Kurimoto's volley that Rodriguez could only get a piece of. The hosts wouldn't relinquish the lead after they scored on a corner that Ramon Del Campo put away from close range in the final minute of the game.
