Official Kickers Summary

The Richmond Kickers (12-7-5, 41 pts) moved back into first place in USL League One after having the weekend off as they defeated South Georgia Tormenta FC (9-9-6, 33 pts) with three unanswered goals in a 3-1 comeback. Jonathan Bolanos scored two goals and recorded one assist and Emiliano Terzaghi scored one goal. Stuart Ritchie also recorded an assist.

Both teams started off very physical with the visitors taking the edge after drawing a penalty in the ninth minute. Adrian Billhardt was able to convert the penalty, giving Tormenta the lead early in the match.

The Kickers pushed for the equalizer but entered the locker room trailing. Tapping into the resilience that pushed the team to earn 14 points from a losing position previously, the Kickers went to work out of the break.

The determination was rewarded in the 55th minute as Bolanos received the ball from a throw-in out wide, made the turn, and found Terzaghi making the run in between two defenders. Terzaghi was then able to take a touch, look up, and calmly put the ball into the back of the net, curling it out of the keeper’s reach.

In the 70th minute, Owayne Gordon found Nil Vinyals at the top of the box to create a play. Vinyals then found Bolanos on the outside run and Bolanos took the opportunity to shoot, however, the shot was saved by the Tormenta keeper, TJ Bush.

In the 72nd minute, Ritchie took the ball up the wing and found Bolanos making a delayed run into the box. The forward slotted the ball with a one-touch shot into the lower far post corner to give the Kickers the 2-1 lead.

Akira Fitzgerald helped the Kickers maintain the 2-1 lead by keeping the ball out of the net after a Tormenta free kick just outside the 18-yard box.

Bolanos was not ready to call it a night after one goal and one assist.

In the fourth minute of seven minutes of stoppage time, Bolanos was able to collect the ball with the help of Gordon. He then dribbled the ball in between two defenders, forced the keeper to come off his line for a 1v1, beat the keeper, and then put the ball into an open goal to secure the Kickers a 3-1 win and increase the team’s season goal differential to 17.

Bolanos now leads the league with 10 assists – tying the league’s single-season assist record with six matches remaining in the season – and Terzaghi leads the Golden Boot race with 15 goals.

The Kickers return to the road to take on defending USL League One champs Union Omaha on Wednesday, Sept. 14th. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. Then the Roos will then travel to Chattanooga to take on the Red Wolves before returning home to take on Central Valley Fuego on September 24th. The September 24th match will also be a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Night. Tickets for the match are available at richmondkickers.com/tickets.

Weekend Radar: Richmond Folk Festival, Carnival of 5 Fires, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Mending Walls Bike Tour and Brunch

After a dreary week the weather is perfect for a Richmond Folk Festival and I’ve even picked a few other things for you to do this weekend.

Richmond Folk Festival at Brown’s Island & Tredegar
October 7-9th

I’m very tempted to stop the list right here. This is hands down the best festival in all of Richmond and arguably Virginia. Three days of free music (make sure you donate so it can stay free), cultural events, beer, and food. I’ll be there for every hour and I think you should be as well. I even helpfully created a Top 5 Must See Acts.

The Richmond Folk Festival will return in the fall, live and in person, to celebrate its 18th anniversary the weekend of October 7-9, 2022. The festival has become one of Virginia’s largest, drawing fans each year to downtown Richmond’s riverfront to celebrate the roots, richness, and variety of American culture through music, dance, traditional crafts, storytelling, and food. Featuring six stages and showcasing music and dance from more than 30 artists from around the nation and the world, the Richmond Folk Festival promises, as always, to return with a culturally diverse and impressive program.

The free, three-day event is presented by Venture Richmond Events, in partnership with the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA), the Center for Cultural Vibrancy, Virginia Humanities, the Children’s Museum, and the City of Richmond.

Carnival of 5 Fires at Gallery 5
October 7th

Gallery 5 is getting into the fall spirit and it’s always a good time.

The Embalmers return to Gallery 5 for one of our favorite events of the year, Carnival of 5 Fires!!! Come help us kick off spooky season!!!


The Rocky Horror Show at Richmond Triangle Players at the Robert B. Moss Theatre
Shows throughout October including tonight October 7th

Let’s all do the time warp again. If I need to say more you need to do some research and get back to me.

With music, lyrics and book by Richard O’Brien, “The Rocky Horror Show” salutes the science fiction and horror “B movies” of the Golden Age of film.
A newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and winds up (by accident?) at the home of a mad scientist, Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter, who is throwing a party to unveil his new creation, a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror.

The musical opened in 1973 in London and played for over seven years, winning critical and audience acclaim in the process. It is probably best-known for its film version, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which premiered in 1975 and became a midnight-show cult classic for multiple generations of movie-goers all over the globe.

Playing the central role of Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter is Durron Marquis Tyre, who recently starred in RTP’s productions of “Falsettos” and “Sugar in Our Wounds.” Newlyweds Brad and Janet are played by August Hundley and Nora Ogunleye, with Frank’s attendants Riff Raff, Columbia and Magenta played by Elle Meerovich, Madison Cox and Kasey Britt. Frank’s creation, Rocky Horror, is played by Wayne Parker, the mysterious Eddie (as well as Brad and Janet’s mentor Dr. Scott) by Travis Williams, and Jim Morgan (who played Frank ‘N’ Furter in RTP’s previous production) as the Narrator who holds the evening together. The Phantoms and Transylvanians are played by Mara Barrett, Robert Gallant, Rachel Garmon-Williams and DeVon Mosby.

RTP’s production is directed by Chelsea Burke. Music direction is by Ben Shaver and choreography is by Kate Belleman. Scenic Design is by Frank Foster, Costume Design by Sheila Russ, Lighting Design by Michael Jarett, and Sound Design by Joey Luck. Projections Design is by Lucian Restivo, Props Design by Tim Moehring, Hair and MakeUp Design by Joel Furtick and Intimacy Choreography by Stephanie Tippi Hart. Saskia Price is the Assistant Stage Manager and Lauren Langston is the Production Stage Manager.

For the safety of the performers, our patrons, and the staff, masks are required to be worn inside the venue – completely covering the nose and mouth — anytime you are not actively eating and drinking. Patrons are asked to please bring a mask that is comfortable enough to wear throughout the evening.


Mending Walls | Bike Tour + Brunch
Throughout October and November with the next on October 8th

Ride a bike and learn about some of the amazing murals in Richmond and the message they represent.

In Richmond, VA public art is one of the city’s biggest assets in the downtown area. As a city with one of the largest collections of public art in the United states we now have the unique opportunity to use public art as a tool to bring empathy and connect at a time when we need it the most.

In the midst of a global pandemic in 2020 America was faced with another brutal killing of a black man at the hands of the police, which set off an uprising that has filled our streets with voices of objection, to the systemic racism here in America. With some of our feelings and demands now physically on Richmond City walls through tags, these expressions leave and mark a space for questions and conversations to happen. These actions inspired the artist Hamilton Glass to start the Mending Walls project.

Join Bike and Brunch Tours for a ride through neighborhoods like Jackson Ward and Brookland Park. These and other neighborhoods we tour are steeped in culture and history but also the new home to murals in the Mending Walls project.

This tour highlights the stories of trailblazers, residents, and organizations behind or continuing the legacy within these communities. This one of a kind, easy pace, casual tour aims to exude positive vibes, treat our communities and the residents with respect, and nourish the mind and belly.
Ride, see Richmond, have fun….and of course have brunch!
