Kickers down Red Bulls 2-1

Jackson Eskay for the win.

Thanks to bit of last minute heroics by a kid that has seen less than 30 minutes of playing time the Richmond Kickers earned all three points on Saturday. The game also had a pretty special half-time as a member of the Red Army got down on bended and proposed. She said yes.

Kickers hit the road and travel to the Rochester Rhinos on Wednesday. Rhinos (defending champs) and Roos are tied on points at 32.  The next home game Saturday, Aug 13th against FC Cincinnati.

From Richmond Kickers:

Richmond continued to threaten the Red Bulls’ goal. Michael Callahan again setup a goal scoring opportunity, this time finding Anthony Grant, who would have his shot saved by Meara and forced out for a corner kick.

Brandon Allen continued to be threat for the Red Bulls as he tested the Richmond goal again, this time from outside the box. Allen received the ball outside the 18 and drilled a shot that Dykstra saved with his chest.

In the final minute of stoppage time the Richmond Kickers found the winning goal. Michael Callahan crossed the ball into the box that was met by the New York goalie, but his attempted punch clear fell at the feet of Jackson Eskay, who with his first touch of the game, fired a low, left footed shot past the goalkeeper and into the net, scoring his first goal for the Kickers to give Richmond the 2-1 win.
