Houston Dynamo Defeat San Jose 3-0 at Home

The Dynamo are currently on top of the Western Conference with 37 points.

The Dynamo returned to BBVA Compass Stadium tonight with a real opportunity to clinch the top position in the highly contested Western Conference of the MLS. However, they would have to do so without their leading assister Alex Lima, who was given a red card in last week’s tie against Real Salt Lake.

Pardon the long absence…

First of all, I would like to apologize to my followers for being absent for so long on both Youtube and on my blog. These past couple of weeks have been very exhausting but fulfilling in my personal life. As many may recall from my twitter, I was in the process of being interviewed for a job in Houston, Texas. I am proud to say that I was hired for the position, and as a result, I had to begin my preparations for the move to a completely new environment. This pretty much reduced the time available to watch and write about RGVFC for La Carga Naranja or upload the Toros FIFA 16 Career Mode videos for my youtube channel. 

I would like to take the time to everyone who sent their best wishes on twitter on personally. I would love to give a shoutout to Justin, Josh, and Sean at The Peel for helping me feel welcome in Houston’s soccer world. I would also give a huge shoutout to my extended family in Houston for keeping me in their thoughts and checking up on my welfare. But most importantly, a HUGE thank you to my parents and sister for their wonderful support all these years. 

Having said this, once I get internet set up in my apartment, I should be able to get back on track with the content you love. It hasn’t been a good season for the Toros but hopefully we can turn this around just in time to make the playoffs. I will also now be covering more Dynamo and Dash material as well so be prepared for that. Until next time, take care and #ForeverOrange.

RGVFC returned to H-E-B Park looking to earn three points against Seattle Sounders 2, but they had to do it without three key players as Charlie Ward, Jose Escalante, and Kai Greene were preparing with the Houston Dynamo for Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup action.

Match Preview: RGVFC Host Seattle Sounders 2

The Toros look to avoid falling out of the playoff spots against a 3rd place Sounders 2.

By: Edson J. Ochoa | @EOchoa_8 & @CargaNaranjaRGV

After a less than satisfactory two game road trip in which the team only managed to earn one point, the Toros return home to H-E-B Park hoping to bring better results. To do so, they must shake off Wednesday’s loss against Reno 1868 and defeat Seattle Sounders 2.

Miguel Herrera Spills the Beans: Hirving “Chucky” Lozano is PSV’s Newest Aquisition

The young Pachuca and El Tri winger has allegedly been purchased by Manchester City and will be loaned for 2 years to PSV.

By Edson J. Ochoa | @EOchoa_8 & @CargaNaranjaRGV

What a bombshell for Mexican soccer! Moments after the Mexican National Team defeated Honduras 3-0 in World Cup Qualifying, former El Tri manager Miguel Herrera, who was the guest analyst for Univision Deportes, announced on their post-game program Contacto Deportivo that Hirving Lozano was purchased by Manchester City. Ivan Kasanzew then mentioned that Lozano will also be loaned to PSV for 2 years to play alongside his compatriots Andrés Guardado and Hector Moreno.

Toros Drop 3 Points at Reno

RGVFC fall 3-2 at Reno 1868. Earned only one point in this 2 game road trip.

By Edson J. Ochoa | @EOchoa_8 & @CargaNaranjaRGV

It was a thrilling game tonight in Reno, but the score went in favor of Reno 1868 at Greater Nevada Field. The Toros came to this game having only conceded 5 goals and had never been scored on more than once in a single game, but in an uncharacteristic display of soccer, RGVFC conceded 3 goals to the USL’s newest hybrid franchise.
