FORT WORTH _ After 90 minutes, the only thing certain is that the Vaqueros and Sockers are two pretty evenly matched teams.
Midland/Odessa tied Fort Worth 0-0 in a hotly contested matchup that leaves both teams with 6-1-2 records and 20 points in NPSL Lone Star Conference play.
“It was a good battle, two good teams going at it,” Vaqueros coach Nick Stavrou said. “Both teams had opportunities to win the game, but in the end it was a fair result. Now, we’ve got to move forward to Saturday at Laredo and go and earn ourselves a victory.”
Fort Worth goalkeeper Ammon Borjas kept the Vaqueros in the match throughout including a spectacular save in the first half on a 1-on-1 breakaway.
The Vaqueros best opportunity came in the second half as Kalle Sone struck the crossbar. Sone entered the match in the second half in his first appearance for the Vaqueros this season.
Both sides had a player ejected in the 77th minute after a shoving match ensued in the Vaqueros defensive half of the field.
The Vaqueros take on fourth place Laredo at 8:15 Saturday in South Texas in another pivotal matchup. The game will be broadcast at the official watch party at HopFusion Ale Works.
