PHOTOS & GAME SUMMARY: Kickers Lose Close One to Madison

It only took one goal to defeat the Richmond Kickers on Saturday. That one goal likely means the Kickers will not be in the USL League 1 Playoffs.

The Kickers playoff hopes were slim going into this game. The lose effectively extinguishes those hopes. The game was a close one the Kickers just couldn’t find the back of the net.

OFFICIAL KICKERS SUMMARY

The Richmond Kickers (8-12-4) fell at home to Forward Madison FC (10-9-6) Saturday night at City Stadium. A goal six minutes into the match from Danny Tenorio was the difference to give the visitors the victory.
Madison took the lead after six minutes from Danny Tenorio. Christian Diaz slotted the ball through for Josiel Nunez. He was able to get the cross off just before getting to the end line. The cross found Diaz, who needed to control the ball before getting his shot past Akira Fitzgerald.
The Kickers nearly leveled the score in the 12th minute off a corner kick. Joe Gallardo played in the corner at the near post. Ivan Magalhães beat his mark to the ball, as his glancing header sail in front of goal and out for a goal kick.
Ryley Kraft found an opening in the 23rd minute, but could not capitalize on the effort. Wahab Ackwei sent the ball ahead for Dennis Chin. The forward got a slight touch on the ball to put it into space for Kraft to run onto. He let the shot rip from the top of the Madison box, forcing a massive save from Brian Sylvestre. Chin pounced on the deflected save, putting his follow up shot wide of the target.
Dennis Chin had his shot saved by the Madison keeper in the 28th minute. Wahab Ackwei again played the long ball ahead. Ryley Kraft controlled the ball and played quickly for Chin. The Jamaican turned and went for the shot that Sylvestre saved.
Joe Gallardo curled in a shot in the 50th minute that Sylvestre needed to save. Ivan Magalhães played the ball wide for Josh Hughes on the left wing. Hughes went for the short pass to Gallardo. He cut inside and found the space for a shot that bent on frame, only to be stopped by the Madison keeper.
The Kickers are back on the road next Saturday night, making the cross country trip out to FC Tucson, September 21 for a 10:30 p.m. ET kickoff. That match will be available live on WTVR CBS 6.3 (Comcast 206, Verizon FiOS 466) and streaming on ESPN+. Stay up to date with the Kickers at RichmondKickers.com.

Black Bear Spotted in James River Park

I can barely contain my excitement about a bear.

The black bear is not the bear being reported but rather a placeholder bear from Wikipedia until someone gets a picture.

Reported by Stephanie on the Woodland Heights Facebook group:

My husband was out on a long ramble with our dog and the dog became very keyed up as they got to the top of the pedestrian bridge at 42nd st. Husband looked down in time to catch a glimpse of a bear.
The bear was seen entering the underbrush near the bottom of the steps. This was at 11:40 this morning.
Sorry, no photos. 😕
This is not the first time that they have seen bears in the park at about this time of year.
So, heads up, neighbors!
While not common black bears in James River Park are not unheard of. As recently as this past June there was a black bear on the North Bank trail that eventually wandered into town. Full story on the June bear here.

Halloween Howl has been a long standing annual tradition in Forest Hill Park, bringing our community together with dogs and their people to benefit Friends of Forest Hill Park and Ring Dog Rescue. The Howl has included dog/owner games, best pet trick competition, costume parade and refreshments. Ring Dog Rescue participated with their adoptable dogs, and CritterTown BathHouse provided a Pooch Pad as well as free nail clipping for a donation to Ring Dog Rescue. The Friends of Forest Hill Park Junior, Middle and High School park volunteers, judged the events and awarded prizes. This year due to COVID health concerns, Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School Senior Jacob Lee, has created a virtual event page for our event so we can continue to host it this year! We greatly appreciate Jacob’s time and talent!

For more information on Ring Dog Rescue go to ringdogrescue.org.
