ALBUQUERQUE – San Antonio FC saw their road woes continue as they suffered an 0-3 loss to New Mexico United (4-1-5) in front of 15,023 fans at Isotopes Park on Sunday night.
The loss was the fourth on the road for San Antonio, who have not won a game away from Toyota Field in the 2019 season.
“I thought our players created several opportunities tonight, but we didn’t capitalize on them,” SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell said. “New Mexico took full advantage of the chances they presented themselves with, and when they scored the second goal the momentum continued to be in their favor. Our players are bitterly disappointed, but we need to put this behind us and prepare for next weekend.”
New Mexico got on the board early as Devon Sandoval beat Matt Cardone with a shot through traffic as the home side went up a goal just nine minutes in. SAFC would have chances to score but would not be able to find the back of the net.
The home side added to their lead in the second half with a pair of goals from Chris Wehan in just four minutes to make it 0-3.
While SAFC is winless on the road, they have won three straight at home and will now play three of their next four matches there.
“It’s always good to play at home because you have your home crowd, your routine, and things are pretty set in stone,” SAFC defender Josh Yaro said. “It’s a comfortable environment and we’ve been good at home this season, so it’s good for confidence. We’re looking to bounce back and earn three points next weekend.”
San Antonio FC is now 3-5-1 (10 points) on the season and will return to the pitch on Saturday when they welcome Orange County SC (3-3-3) to Toyota Field at 7:30 pm Central Time.
