Wilmer Cabrera solidifies his stance on the RGV FC potential. Every match for RGV FC has been decided by just one goal difference week, by week. Despite the early dominance by potent attacking side Colorado Springs in Week 9, RGV kept the match at reach by controlling pace and forced a two-goal comeback run which was sparked by two set piece plays from the corner kick spot.
Defenders Frank Nodarse and Wahab Ackwei notched one goal apiece in Colorado Springs, a welcomed feat for RGV FC as they continue to struggle with offensive depth due to roster complications. Week 10 in California can prove to be the turning point and confidence boost that the thin RGV FC side needs to get back on track and focus on the true goal ahead of climbing the standings as more pieces start coming back into the mix.
