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.

Use Exact Change or E-Zpass on Powhite Parkway Starting Today

There will be no manned booths taking money on Powhite for the foreseeable future.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has temporarily suspended cash exchange tolls on Powhite Parkway extension and the George P. Coleman Memorial Bridge. This means there won’t be someone to take your money so either have exact change, pay too much, or use an E-Zpass. No mention of any changes to Nickel aka Boulevard Bridge.

As of April 1, if you make an unpaid trip on a Virginia toll facility, you may be able to pay that toll through the “missed-a-toll” process before receiving a notice/invoice. The “missed-a-toll” payment process must take place within six days of the unpaid toll trip.

The standard administration fee associated with “missed-a-toll” has been suspended temporarily.

Exact change can still be dropped into the coin basket at the Powhite Parkway Extension.

E-ZPass is now the most convenient and safest way to pay tolls.

For more information or to order your own E-ZPass, click here.

Hurry in a Curry to be First Friday Food Truck at Westover Place

Planning your weekly dinner menus just got another option.

The folks at Westover Place, the strip of stores between The Forest and 48 Hours, will be hosting a rotating food truck every Friday. It will be a single truck and this week is one of my favorites.

Curry in a Hurry will be parked in front of the former “Stories” location (5065 Forest Hill Ave) on Friday (4/3) from 4 – 7 PM. If you’re looking for a little variety or an excuse to take a walk on Friday now you’ve got a good reason. The menu might be a little different for Friday but this is the standard menu.

Never had Curry in a Hurry? This is what owner Barry Hodge has to say about his offerings.

Well, here we are, this is my passion – curry, not just any curry, but British Indian curry. I have been eating this food since I was 5, I have been making this delightful food since I was 15 and now feel it’s time to share the delights of British Indian Curry with the good people of Richmond.

Over the past 60 years it has become the #1 take-away food in England and is now regarded as the “national dish”. Ask anyone you may know who comes from England what they most miss apart from the pubs, they may well tell you it’s the curry. What makes this style of curry any different from any other curry?  Its hard to say, but much has to do with the fresh ingredients, the exotic spices, the aromatic flavors and of course (if desired), the mouth tingling taste!
