      Austin Aztex Press Release - www.austinaztex.com

       

      Saturday, September 11, 2010

       

      BAYAMON, Puerto Rico – Three second-half goals downed the top team in the USSF D-2 Pro League on Saturday night in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, which sent the Austin Aztex home without a point for the first time since their last trip to play the Islanders.

       

      In a game that the Aztex (14-4-7) were outshot 12-7, Austin managed few opportunities on net for the second straight contest in Bayamon, but were able to capitalize on a penalty shot early in the first half. Jamie Watson took the kick on the ground to the right of the goalkeeper, who wasn’t able to make a move on the shot. The goal was Watson’s seventh of the season, bringing him into a tie for seventh in the league.

       

      Prior to Saturday night’s game, Austin was 13-1-1 when scoring first and 8-1-1 after leading at halftime. However, Puerto Rico (9-9-9) came out firing in the second half with goals in the 61st minute, 70th minute and 87th minute that sent the Aztex back behind Rochester in the league table, though Austin still has two games in hand.

       

      Austin’s next two matches are both on the road as well next week in Tampa Bay and St. Louis, before it returns home to House Park.
